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.

I never tire of this song no matter how many times I hear it or view the beautiful wedding song video! Truly beautiful.
I wish I knew Hebrew. The song is so great. I can’t listen enough. I will keep repeating this song until the time of meeting Yeshua come.
Bless you Israel.
Mark listening over and over you’ll learn the Hebrew words and pronunciation in no time at all!
So many blessings to you Mark.
Thank you for your reply Cindy. I am planning to take online Hebrew lessons. I just love the language.
Oh what a blessing! Enjoy!
Mark, this truly is a song to welcome our Bridegroom Yeshua. By the way…it’s not too late to begin to learn Hebrew. Every word is special. You can try our free Hebrew course – Yvrit Le’at Le’at – Hebrew Slowly Slowly! Thank you for your blessing – Israel blesses you too.
I am just now reading and relishing Abraham Joshua Herschel’s “The Sabbath” which I won a few months back. What a blessing!! Each chapter leaves me amazed at how majestic our Abba’s love is for us. How He wants to spend ‘time’ with us and created a special, holy, set apart day to do so! The Bride and Queen of days! Our GOD is truly an awesome GOD!
Oh ((((Teresa)))) how wonderful to read your words here! Yes such an amazing love <3 You make me want to pull out The Shabbat again and give it another read <3
