One of the most beautiful customs on Shabbat is to sing Zemirot at the Shabbat table - special songs describing and sensitising us to the holiness and beauty of Shabbat.

It is customary to sing Dror Yikra at the Shabbat day table. Dror Yikra was written by Dunash Ben Laverat (920-990 - mentioned in the writings of Rashi, Ketubbot 10b, and Tosafot, Sukka 31b)

About Dror Yikra - by Rabbi Yosef Tzvi Rimon

Rabbi Yehuda HaLevi writes: “The slaves of time - are slaves to slaves; a slave to G-d - he alone is free.” דרור - freedom - is not the lack of any obligation. True freedom means being free to do G-d’s will, and doing G-d’s will is true freedom. We ask G-d to ensure true freedom for His people; to rebuild the Temple - D’rosh Navi v’Ulami; to give Am Yisrael trees to sit under for shade - Hadas shitah b’rosh tidhar. - based on Yeshayahu 41:19; to destroy our enemies - B’mog Leivav u’Vamgina - He will melt their hearts. The goal is not freedom, but serving G-d. Thus, the message to the Jewish people is that - ‘Dei’ah chochmah l’nafshecha v’hi keter l’roshecha, n’tzor mitzvat K’doshecha sh’mor Shabbat Kodshecha’ - ‘if you are wise you will study Torah, so that it may be a crown upon your head; keep G-d’s mitzvoth and observe Shabbat.’ The goal of freedom is the ability to connect with Torah, sanctity, and Hashem.”
