Paltiel (Philip) Birnbaum’s translation of The Song of Songs (Shir haShirim) in Ha-Siddur Ha-Shalem (The [Complete] Daily Prayer Book), Hebrew Publishing Company, 1949. . . .
A translation of the Seven Blessings shared just in time for Shavuot, and in honor of several of my friend’s weddings. . . .
A woman of valour who can find?
For her price is far above rubies.
The heart of her husband does safely trust in her,
And he has no lack of gain.
She does him good and not evil
All the days of her life.
My beloved is mine, and I am his,
That feeds among the lilies. . . .
