Sure-to-Make-You-Smile Tefilat Chana by Ruchama ben Yosef

Sure-to-Make-You-Smile Tefilat Chana by Ruchama ben Yosef

For the last few weeks I’ve been doing something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, I’ve been listening my way through the entire Bible (as an audio book) from start to finish. Today I got to Chana’s prayer which she says after she gave birth to Shmuel and dedicates him to a lifetime of Divine service in the Tabernacle. And for me, as I sorted laundry, this prayer transported me to a place of glorious gratitude, along with Chana as she rejoiced over her salvation, a long-awaited release from 19 years of infertility and yearning and being taunted by her sister-wife, Pnina.
And I knew today I had to share this gorgeous song Ruchama Ben Yosef (at link below) wrote following the birth of her 1st child after 5 years of marriage (she is the older sister of Akiva, whom I posted about earlier this week). Click here to read that original post from 10 years ago, an interview with Ruchama ben Yosef called “Singing my Way through Infertility” https://jewishmom.com/…/ruchama-ben-yosef-singing-my…/
