והוא נוסע ונוסע בלי לומר מילה

Blogging from the airport. For a while I have been meaning to write something (though nothing original) about the poem for Shabbat Hannukah titled Odecha Hashem ki Anafta, and the story it hints to, as expressed more clearly in a medieval story published by Yellinek as Midrash Hannukah 3. But it will have to wait a little longer. Maybe by that time I'll have something to say.

Please do write on this topic. For the past few weeks, I have been working on a (popularly-oriented) edition of this piyyut.

Have you seen the article by Moshe Rosenwasser, HaMa'ayan 43, 2 (2003), pp. 21-30?

My husband and I are trying to locate a copy of this piyut (Odecha Anafta). Our son's bar-mitzvah is on Shabbat Chanukah and we are hoping to incorporate part of it into my speech. Do you have a copy of this piyut? Thanks!

Odecha ki Anafta, by Yosef ben Shlomo. Probably the most accessible place to find it is in Seligmann Baer's Siddur Avodat Yisrael, Redelheim 1868, pp. 637-640. The siddur was reprinted a few years ago and is available in seforim stores.

Thank you so much! I just received a fax from a Jewish Library with the Piyut! Your information was how I tracked it down! Thanks again!
