Bless This House


This beautiful prayer was written by Roz Pomerantz in honor of the installation of Rabbi Matt Carl and rededication of our synagogue on December 14, 2014. Sung to the tune of “Bless This House.”

Bless this House, dear G-d, we pray Keep it safe by night and day. Ninety years, standing firm and tall Keeping watch over one and all.

Times of joy and times of sad
What an impact this shul has had! If walls could talk, they’d surely say Keep faith & always pray.

Bless the leaders for the devotion rare. Bless the members whose hearts are here.
Bless the children their souls so pure. Bless this building, that it may endure.

Hear our prayers as were turn to you. Fill our hears with love anew.
Fill this house with love and peace. May hatred and bigotry truly cease.

And may East Midwood always be, a haven for this community.
