Kad Yasvun Yisroel

כד יתבון ישראל

Kad yasvun yisroel vaskin besimchas haTorah, kudsha barich hu omer lefalmaya dilay, chazu banai chavivai, demishtachin betzarah dilhon ve'askin bechedvasah dilay.
כד יתבון ישראל ועסקין בשמחת התורה, קודשא בריך הוא אומר לפלמיא דיליה, חזו בניי חביביי, דמשתכחין בצערא דלהון ועסקין בחדוותא דילי


When the Jewish people sit, and busy themselves with the joys of Torah, the Holy One Blessed be He, says to all his heavenly hosts: 'Look at at my beloved children as they forget their own sufferings and become immersed in my delight.'
