An additional stanza for Ma’oz Tsur after 7 October, by Aryeh Baruch


Source (Hebrew)Translation (English)
An additional stanza for Ma’oz Tzur, to be placed after חֲשׂוֹף זרוֹעַ קדְשֶׁךָ.
וְאַרְצָה מְעוֹן צִיּוֹנֵנוּ הוֹצֵיא כְאוֹר מִשְׁפָּטֵנוּ
שַׁחְרֵר מֵחָמָס מִשְׁפַּחְתֵּנוּ וּתְנֵנוּ שְׁלוֹמֵנוּ
כִּי שׂוֹנֵאנוּ אָחִינוּ וּמִשְׁתַּלֵּחַ לְהַחְרִיבֵנוּ
לָעֶרֶב אוֹר לַבּוֹקֶר דְּרוֹר כְּטַל חֶרמוֹן בְּאַרְצֵנוּ
And towards the Land, abode of our Tzion, bring out like light our judgment![1] Adapted from Mussaf of Rosh haShanah 
Free from violent hatred our family, and give us our peace!
For our brother hates us, and he lashes out to destroy us,
By the evening – light,[2] Zechariah 14:7  by the morning – freedom, like the dew of Hermon[3] Psalms 133:3  in our land.

This is a supplemental stanza to the popular 13th century piyyut, Maoz Tsur, for the Ḥanukkah occurring in the aftermath of the horrors on 7 October.
