about

Techezena

A few years ago I was introduced into parts of the Shemoneh esrei and was inexplicably drawn to a phrase with the words “V’techezena…” based on the sound alone. Later the actual meaning hit me with full force since I had been involved in something previous called Chazon and between that and its meaning felt compelled to learn more. Below is a transliteration and then a translation. I feel this is a prayer of hope.

lyrics

Here's what it means: May our eyes envision/see
Your return to Zion in compassion, praise you G-d
(The) return of his Sh'china [presence] to Zion
