      אַחֲרֵי הַחַגִּים יִתְחַדֵּשׁ הַכֹּל / יִתְחַדְּשׁוּ וְיָשׁוּבוּ יְמֵי הַחוֹל
      Aḥaréi ha-ḥagím yitḥadésh ha-kol / yitḥadshú v-yashúvu y'mei ha-ḥol
      In a while, everything will be renewed / ordinary days will return, renewed
      (literally, “After the holidays, it will renew itself, everything / they will renew themselves, they will return, the secular days”)
