Beyond Avinu Malkeinu (2021): A New English Interpretation Set to an Old Tune

After struggling for years with the imagery of "Avinu Malkeinu" (our father our king) I was inspired to write this English interpretation set to the familiar folk tune.

Beyond Avinu Malkeinu

O Spirit of all Time and Space

Great Spirit of all Time and Space

O Source and Creator,

Healer, Sustainer

Please hear us and guide us with grace


In all the words we say

And all the deeds we do

With every breath and every step

O may we be closer to You

And may we be open to You
