Prayer Of The Mothers


The song "Prayer of the Mothers", was born as a result of an alliance made between singer-songwriter Yael Deckelbaum, and a group of courageous women, leading the movement of “Women Wage Peace”.

The movement arose on summer 2014 during the escalation of violence between Israel and the Palestinians, and the military operation “Tzuk Eitan”.

On October 4, 2016, Jewish and Arab women began with the joint "March of Hope" project.
Thousands of women marched from the north of Israel to Jerusalem in a call for peace. A call that reached it’s peak on October 19th, in a march of at least 4,000 women half of them Palestinian, and Half Israeli, in Qasr el Yahud (on the northern Dead Sea).
The very same evening 15,000 women protested in front of the priministors house in Jerusalem.

The marches were joined by the Nobel Prize for Peace winner Leymah Gbowee, who lead to the end of the Second Liberian Civil War in 2003, by the joint force of women.
In the song, Yael combined a recording of Leymah, sampled from a youtube video in which she had sent her blessings to the movement.
מנשבת מאי שם
וכביסה מתנפנפת
לצילי החומה

بين الأرض والسما
ناس كتير
بيعيشوا سوى
ما تخافوا تحلموا
بالسلام والأمان

מתי ימסו חומות הפחד
ושבתי מגלותי
יפתחו שעריי
אל הטוב האמיתי

يلا تنام עוד זריחה
تندبحلك طير الحمام בוקר בא
روح يا حمام אם שולחת
בתפילה لا تصدّق

את ילדה לבית הספר
نضحك ع الطفل ت ينام
לצלילי מלחמה

עוד ימסו بيكفي خوف
חומות הפחד تعوا نبدا من جديد
ושבתי מגלותי
יפתחו שעריי ونفتح الأبواب
אל הטוב האמיתי

From the north to the south
From the west to the east
Hear the prayer of the mothers
Bring them peace
Bring them peace


من الشمال
للجنوب
من الغرب
صوب الشرق
إسمع صلاة الأمهات
للسلام
بدنا السلام

אור עולה מהמזרח
מול תפילת האמהות
לשלום
