Translation:

Say three times: Peace unto you, ministering angels, messengers of the Most High, of the supreme King of kings, the Holy One, blessed be He.

Say three times: May your coming be in peace angels of peace, messengers of the Most High, of the supreme King of kings, the Holy one, blessed be He.

Say three times: Bless me with peace, angels of peace, messengers of the Most High, of the supreme King of kings, the Holy one, blessed be He.

Say three times: May your departure be in peace, angels of peace, messengers of the Most High, of the supreme King of kings, the Holy one, blessed be He.

For He will instruct His angels in your behalf, to guard you in all your ways. The Lord will guard your going and your coming from now and for all time.

The Sholom Aleichem Song!
I am going through my conversion and this song sticks to me like "White on Rice!" I love this song and want to thank Chabad.org and all those who allow the continuing of this service. It's a big help.

What a beautiful song and sound. This is the first time l have heard this in Hebrew, and the Spirit of my G-D, HaShem, within went for a dim for a dozen. Oh what a beautiful sound. Even though l could not understand a single word, l felt a complete peace come over me whist l was listening to the song. Thank you.

If you like this, you should hear some of the Yiddish lullabyes, like "Rozinkes mit mandlin". "Almonds and Raisins", which is very beautiful. A merchant of almonds and raisins is far away, but mom sings that he'll be back, soon, with almonds and raisins. (or else he trades in almonds and raisins. Not sure of story line. there's also a Sephardic one about several animals, keeps working up to one more either in Ladino or Spanish. Lots of fun to sing.

I forgot to add that the music played is also very beautiful - and I appreciate the slower tempo. Can I order this on CD?

This is so beautiful!
Dear listeners,

I am just learning Hebrew, and am in my second year of study towards converting to Judaism; so I am a beginner. I see there is talk of a yiddish accent here--can someone clarify this heavy accent? Sephardic or Ashkenazi? I would like to memorize the song and sing along, but I hear dipthongs where I see single vowels, and it is mysterious to me. I am a language teacher myself, so I am curious about such things. Thank you for any wisdom you may have to enlighten me about this! (And I am buying the CD anyway--I am a sucker for a beautiful, haunting melody.)
