Translated "We welcome (or greet) you in peace," "We wish for you to have peace in your lives," or "Peace unto you," "Hevenu Shalom A'leychem" is a traditional Jewish greeting wishing the goodness of a peace-filled life. It further grants an energetic "Sabbath peace" by quoting another folk melody, "Shabbat Shalom." This energetic, dance-like celebration culminates with a final presentation, complete with a descant that blesses everyone with Shalom, the blessing of peace.
