The Sabbath is a bride, and its celebration is like a wedding.*
Boi Kala – Come Oh Bride – is the last verse of Lekha Dodi – Going to My Beloved. It is a beautiful moving prayer welcoming in Shabbat but also a soul stirring song sung at Jewish weddings as the bride walks up to the chuppah where her bridegroom awaits her.
This is a wonderful song to learn as we make our way from Passover to Shavuot, Atzeret Pesach, which is the crowning, as it were of Passover and which foreshadows the culmination of God’s plan of Redemption.
The Talmud refers to Shavuot as ‘the marriage day’ between G-d and the Jewish people and just as a bride counts the days up to her wedding, so too Israel counts the days between Passover and Shavuot.
The book of Ruth is read during the season of Shavuot and those who are grafted into the Olive Tree are reminded of the redeeming love of Yeshua HaMashiach, our Goel, who has taken us as a bride from among the nations.

Although, we highly recommend Yossi Azulay’s complete album Prayers, Vol. 2
It is a true delight and each track is inspirational.
Also enjoy the second video clip. Yossi Azulay sings the words of Boi Kalah to the stirring melody of “Time to Say Goodbye” at a beautiful Jewish wedding. The bride and groom are saying goodbye to their old lives at the start of a precious new one together!
A breathtaking and memorable occasion. ~ Keren Hannah
