In this short recording, Rabbi Elliot Cosgrove of Park Avenue (Conservative) Synagogue in New York City blesses the children in his congregation with the blessing traditionally said by parents on Friday night. Rabbi Cosgrove recites the blessings in Hebrew and English, including the one for sons, the one for daughters, and the Priestly Blessing for both. Afterwards,Cantor Azi Schwartz sings the following praise for God, which is based on a part of the chazzan’s repetition of the Amidah prayer, according to the Ashkenazi custom:
. וְשִׁבְחֲךָ אֱלהֵינוּ מִפִּינוּ לא יָמוּשׁ לְעולָם וָעֶד. לְדור וָדור נַגִּיד גָּדְלֶךָ וּלְנֵצַח נְצָחִים קְדֻשָּׁתְךָ נַקְדִּישׁ. לְדור וָדור נַגִּיד גָּדְלֶךָ וּלְנֵצַח נְצָחִים קְדֻשָּׁתְךָ נַקְדִּישׁ.
