Cups (D’ror Yikra)!


Comments: 13 Comments  |  Category: Announcements, Music, News

Is it still a cappella if we used cups and a table for percussion? Either way, we’re proud to present our latest pop-adaptation: we put the lyrics of “D’ror Yikra,” a traditional Shabbat-table song, to the tune of “Cups,” recently popularized by the movie Pitch Perfect.

According to one interpretation, the opening line of the song, “D’ror Yikra,” calls upon us to take advantage of Shabbat, the spiritual day of rest, and free ourselves from the mundane world. Learn more about this song of medieval origin here.

Nothing would make us happier than knowing that you sing our version of “D’ror Yikra” at your own Shabbat tables!

Don’t forget to grab this track on iTunes or CDBaby!

    I am impressed that you can sing and even harmonize while doing the cups. I’m getting there. I did on the way learn not to do it with a glass.

    I’ve listened dozens of times to this song! Nearing hundreds… Although I am Catholic, I have Jewish family roots and would love to learn the words. Hoping you’ll print them (with phoneticss) so I can sing it in my car when I pray. Bless you for the joy you bring our world.

    I felt it necessary to say on behalf of all religious Israelis that this song became a hit, and at home we watched this clip together at more than five times a week
    We are your fans!
    Waiting for new clips
