Opening Songs

Mah Tovu מה טבו

“Mah Tovu” is a song meant to express your gratitude for being able to join in prayer. It is a sign of reverence and appreciation for the house of prayer.

How good are your tents, O Jacob, your dwelling places, O Israel! As for me, in the abundance of Your love, I will enter Your house: I will worship toward Your holy temple out of reverence for You. Adonai, I love residing in Your house, and the place where Your glory dwells. I will worship and bow down: I will bend my knee before Adonai, my Maker. May my prayer to You, Adonai, be acceptable: God, in the abundance of Your lovingkindness, answer me with the truth of Your salvation.

Mah tovu ohalecha ya-akov, mishk'notecha yisra-eil. Va-ani b'rov chasd'cha avo veitecha, eshtachaveh el heichol kodsh'cha b'yiratecha. Adonai ahavti m'on beitecha, um'kom mishkan k'vodecha. Va-ani eshtachaveh v'echra-ah, evr'chah lifnei Adonai osi. Va-ani t'filati l'cha Adonai, eit ratzon, elohim b'rav chasdecha, aneini be-emet yishecha.

מַה טּֽבוּ אֹהָלֶיךָ יַעֲקֹב, מִשְׁכְּנֹתֶיךָ יִשְׂרָאֵל. וַאֲנִי בְּרֹב חַסְדְּךָ אָבוֹא בֵיתֶךָ, אֶשְׁתַּחֲוֶה אֶל הֵיכַל קָדְשְׁךָ בְּיִרְאָתֶךָ. יְיָ אָהַבְתִּי מְעוֹן בֵּיתֶךָ, וּמְקוֹם מִשְׁכַּן כְּבוֹדֶךָ. וַאֲנִי אֶשְׁתַּחֲוֶה וְאֶכְרָעָה, אֶבְרְכָה לִפְנֵי יְיָ עֹשִׂי. וַאֲנִי תְפִלָּתִי לְךָ יְיָ, עֵת רָצוֹן, אֱלֹהִים בְּרָב חַסְדֶּךָ, עֲנֵֽנִי בֶּאֱמֶת יִשְׁעֶךָ.

Schacharit Morning Prayers

Elohai Neshama אלהי נשמה

O my God, the soul which You gave me is pure; You did create it, You did form it, You did breathe it into me. You preserve it within me, and You will take it from me, but will restore it to me hereafter. So long as the soul is within me, I will give thanks to You, Adonai, my God and God of my ancestors, Sovereign of all works, God of all souls! Blessed are You, Adonai, who restores souls unto the dead.

Elohai, n'shamah shenatata bi t'horah hi. Atah v'ratah, atah y'tzartah, atah n'fachtah bi, v'atah m'sham'rah b'kirbi, v'atah atid lit'lah mimeni, ul'hachazirah bi le-atid lavo.

Ashrei (Psalm 145) אשרי

Those who dwell in Your house are happy and will be forever praising You. Happy are those who are part of Your people. Happy is the people whose God is the Sovereign.

Ashrei yosh'vei veitecha, od y'hal'lucha selah. Ashrei ha-am shekachah lo, ashrei ha-am she-adonai elohav.

אַשְׁרֵי יוֹשְׁבֵי בֵיתֶךָ,
עוֹד יְהַלְלֽוּךָ סֶּלָה.
אַשְׁרֵי הָעָם שֶׁכָּכָה לּוֹ,
אַשְׁרֵי הָעָם שֶׁיְיָ אֱלֹהָיו.

I will praise You, my God and Sovereign and will bless Your Name forever and ever. Every day I will bless You and praise Your Name forever and ever.

T'hilah l'david, aromimcha elohai hamelech, va-avar'chah shimcha l'olam va-ed. B'chol yom avar'cheka, va-ahal'lah shimcha l'olam va-ed.

תְּהִלָּה לְדָוִד, אֲרוֹמִמְךָ אֱלוֹהַי הַמֶּלֶךְ,
וַאֲבָרְכָה שִׁמְךָ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד.
בְּכָל יוֹם אֲבָרְכֶךָּ,
וַאֲהַלְלָה שִׁמְךָ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד.

Adonai is great and deserving of excessive praise. God’s greatness lasts throughout the generations. One generation shall describe Your holy acts to another, and shall declare Your acts mighty.

Gadol Adonai um'hulal m'od, v'ligdulato ein cheiker. Dor l'dor y'shabach ma-asecha, ug'vurotecha yagidu.

גָּדוֹל יְיָ וּמְהֻלָּל מְאֹד,
וְלִגְדֻלָּתוֹ אֵין חֵקֶר.
דּוֹר לְדוֹר יְשַׁבַּח מַעֲשֶׂיךָ, וּגְבוּרֹתֶיךָ יַגִּידוּ.

I will meditate on Your majestic glory, and Your marvelous deeds.

Hadar k'vod hodecha, v'divrei nifl'otecha asichah.

הֲדַר כְּבוֹד הוֹדֶךָ,
וְדִבְרֵי נִפְלְאֹתֶיךָ אָשִׂיחָה.

People will speak of the might of Your tremendous acts and will recount Your greatness. They will speak of Your famous goodness, and will exult in Your righteousness.

Ve-ezuz nor'otecha yomeiru, ug'dulat'cha asap'renah. Zecher rav tuv'cha yabiu, v'tzidkat'cha y'raneinu.

וֶעֱזוּז נוֹרְאוֹתֶיךָ יֹאמֵרוּ,
וּגְדֻלָּתְךָ אֲסַפְּרֶנָּה.
זֶכֶר רַב טוּבְךָ יַבִּיעוּ,
וְצִדְקָתְךָ יְרַנֵּנוּ.

Adonai is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and full of great lovingkindness. Adonai is good to all and exudes tender mercy through God’s holy work.

Chanun v'rachum Adonai, erech apayim ug'dol chased. Tov Adonai lakol, v'rachamav al kol ma-asav.

חַנּוּן וְרַחוּם יְיָ,
אֶרֶךְ אַפַּיִם וּגְדָל חָסֶד.
טוֹב יְיָ לַכֹּל,
וְרַחֲמָיו עַל כָּל מַעֲשָׂיו.

All Your works will give thanks to You, O God, and Your loved ones will bless You.

Yoducha Adonai kol ma-asecha, vachasidecha y'var'chuchah

יוֹדֽוּךָ יְיָ כָּל מַעֲשֶׂיךָ, וַחֲסִידֶיךָ יְבָרְכֽוּכָה.

They will speak of Your glory and Your power to make known to the world God’s mighty acts, and the majestic glory of the divine kingdom.

K'vod amalchut'cha yomeiru, ug'vurat'cha y'dabeiru. L'hodi-a livnei ha-adam g'vurotav, uch'vod hadar malchuto.

כְּבוֹד מַלְכוּתְךָ יֹאמֵרוּ,
וּגְבוּרָתְךָ יְדַבֵּרוּ.
לְהוֹדִיעַ לִבְנֵי הָאָדָם גְּבוּרֹתָיו, וּכְבוֹד הֲדַר מַלְכוּתוֹ.

Your sovereignty is everlasting. Your reign endures throughout all generations.

Malchut'cha malchut kol olamim, umemshalt'cha b'chol dor vador.

מַלְכוּתְךָ מַלְכוּת כָּל עוֹלָמִים, וּמֶמְשַׁלְתְּךָ בְּכָל דֹּר וָדֹר.

Adonai supports all who fall and raises up all those who are bowed down. The eyes of all remain fixed upon You and You give them their food when the time is right.

Someich Adonai l'chol hanof'lim, v'zokeif l'chol hak'fufim. Einei chol eilecha y'sabeiru, v'atah notein lahem et ach'lam b'ito.

סוֹמֵךְ יְיָ לְכָל הַנֹּפְלִים,
וְזוֹקֵף לְכָל הַכְּפוּפִים.
עֵינֵי כֹל אֵלֶיךָ יְשַׂבֵּרוּ,
וְאַתָּה נוֹתֵן לָהֶם אֶת אָכְלָם בְּעִתּוֹ.

You open Your hand and spread Your favor over all living creatures. Adonai is righteous in every way and works only through love.

Potei-ach et yadecha, umasbi-a l'chol chai ratzon. Tzadik Adonai b'chol d'rachav, v'chasid b'chol ma-asav.

פּוֹתֵחַ אֶת יָדֶךָ,
וּמַשְׂבִּיעַ לְכָל חַי רָצוֹן.
צַדִּיק יְיָ בְּכָל דְּרָכָיו,
וְחָסִיד בְּכָל מַעֲשָׂיו.

Adonai is near to all who call in truth.

Karov Adonai l'chol kor'av, l'chol asher yikrauhu ve-emet.

קָרוֹב יְיָ לְכָל קֹרְאָיו,
לְכֹל אֲשֶׁר יִקְרָאֻהוּ בֶאֱמֶת.

Adonai’s reverent followers will have their desires fulfilled. God will hear their cries and will save them. All who love Adonai will be protected, but all the wicked will be destroyed.

R'tzon y'rei-av ya-aseh, v'et shavatam yishma v'yoshi-eim. Shomeir Adonai et kol ohavav, v'eit kol har'shaim yashmid.

רְצוֹן יְרֵאָיו יַעֲשֶׂה,
וְאֶת שַׁוְעָתָם יִשְׁמַע וְיוֹשִיעֵם. שׁוֹמֵר יְיָ אֶת כָּל אֹהֲבָיו,
וְאֵת כָּל הָרְשָׁעִים יַשְׁמִיד.

(Reader) My mouth shall express praise for Adonai. May all of humanity learn to bless God’s holy Name forever and ever. We will bless Adonai from this time forth and forevermore. Praise God!

T'hilat Adonai y'daber pi, vivareich kol basar sheim kod'sho l'olam va-ed.
Va-anachnu n'vareich yah, mei-atah v'ad olam, hal'luyah.

(Reader) תְּהִלַּת יְיָ יְדַבֶּר פִּי,
וִיבָרֵךְ כָּל בָּשָׂר שֵׁם קָדְשׁוֹ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד.
וַאֲנַחְנוּ נְבָרֵךְ יָהּ,
מֵעַתָּה וְעַד עוֹלָם, הַלְלוּיָהּ.

Halleluyah Hallelu El B'Kadesho (Psalm 150) הללויה הללו אל בקדשו

[Psalm 150]
Praise God. Praise God in God's sanctuary: praise God in the firmament of God's power. Praise God for mighty acts: praise God according to God's abundant greatness. Praise God with the sound of the horn: praise God with the harp and lyre. Praise God with the timbrel and dance: praise God with the clear-toned cymbals: praise God with the loud-sounding cymbals. (Reader) Let everything that has breath praise Adonai: praise God, let everything that has breath praise Adonai: praise Adonai.

Hal'luyah, hal'lu eil b'kod'sho, hal'luhu birki-a uzo. Hal'luhu bigvurotav, hal'luhu k'rov gudlo. Hal'luhu b'teika shofar, hal'luhu b'neivel v'chinor. Hal'luhu b'tof umachol, hal'luhu b'minim v'ugav. Hal'luhu b'tziltz'lei shama, hal'luhu b'tziltz'lei t'ruah. Kol han'shamah t'haleil yah hal'luyah. Kol han'shamah t'haleil yah hal'luyah.

הַלְלוּיָהּ, הַלְלוּ אֵל בְּקָדְשׁוֹ, הַלְלֽוּהוּ בִּרְקִיעַ עֻזּוֹ. הַלְלֽוּהוּ בִּגְבוּרֹתָיו, הַלְלֽוּהוּ כְּרֹב גֻּדְלוֹ. הַלְלֽוּהוּ בְּתֵקַע שׁוֹפָר, הַלְלֽוּהוּ בְּנֵבֶל וְכִנּוֹר. הַלְלֽוּהוּ בְּתֹף וּמָחוֹל, הַלְלֽוּהוּ בְּמִנִּים וְעֻגָב. הַלְלֽוּהוּ בְּצִלְצְלֵי שָׁמַע, הַלְלֽוּהוּ בְּצִלְצְלֵי תְרוּעָה. (Reader) כֹּל הַנְּשָׁמָה תְּהַלֵּל יָהּ הַלְלוּיָהּ. כֹּל הַנְּשָׁמָה תְּהַלֵּל יָהּ הַלְלוּיָהּ.

Shochein Ad שוכן עד

God lives forever! Exalted and holy is the Name. It is written: May the righteous delight in Adonai and may the moral hear praise. By the mouth of the upright You shall be praised, by the words of the righteous You shall be blessed, by the tongue of the pious You shall be acclaimed, and in the midst of the holy You will be hallowed.

In the assemblies also of the tens of thousands of your people, the house of Israel, your Name, O our Sovereign, shall be glorified with joyous song in every generation; for such is the duty of all creatures before you, O Adonai our God and God of our ancestors,(Reader) to thank, praise, laud, glorify, extol, honor, bless, exalt and acclaim you, even beyond all the words of song and adoration of David the son of Jesse, your anointed servant.

Praised be the Name forever, O our Sovereign, the great and holy God and Sovereign in heaven and on earth. To You, O God, and God of our ancestors, we send the song and praise You deserve. We send hymn and psalm, strength and glory, holiness and sovereignty, blessings and thanksgivings for now and forever.(Reader) Blessed are You, Adonai, God and Sovereign, great in praises, God of thanksgivings, Master of wonders, who chooses song and psalm, O Sovereign and God, the life of all worlds.

Blessed are you, Adonai our God, Ruler of the universe, who forms light and creates darkness, who makes peace and creates all things:

All shall thank you, and all shall praise you, and all shall say, There is none holy like Adonai. All shall extol you forever, you Creator of all things, O God who opens every day the door of the gates of the East, and cleaves the windows of the firmament, leading forth the sun from its place, and the moon from its dwelling, giving light to the whole world and to its inhabitants whom you created by the attribute of mercy. In mercy you gave light to the earth and to them that dwell thereon, and in your goodness renew the creation every day continually; O Sovereign, who alone was exalted from aforetime, praised, glorified and extolled from days of old. O everlasting God, in your abundant mercies, have mercy upon us, God of our strength, Rock of our stronghold, Shield of our salvation, you Stronghold of ours! There is none to be compared unto you, neither is there any beside you; there is none but you: (Reader) There is none to be compared unto you, O Adonai our God, in this world, neither is there any beside you, O our Ruler, for the life of the world to come; there is none but you, O our Redeemer, for the days of the Messiah; neither is there any like unto you, O our Savior, for the revival of the dead.

The community sings this prayer along with the reader.

God, the Master of all works is ever to be blessed by the mouth of everything that has breath. God’s greatness and goodness fill the universe, surrounded by knowledge and understanding. God is exalted above everything else holy and is adorned in glory above the celestial chariot. Purity and integrity lie before God’s throne, lovingkindness and tender mercy before glory. The luminaries that God created are good: they were formed with knowledge, understanding and discernment. God gave them might and power to rule in the midst of the world. They are full of luster, and they radiate brightness: beautiful is their lustre throughout all the world. They rejoice in their commencement, and are glad in their returning; they perform with awe the will of their Master. Glory and honour they render unto God’s Name, exultation and rejoicing at the fame of God’s sovereignty. God called unto the sun, and it shone forth in light: God looked, and ordained the figure of the moon. All the hosts on high render praise unto God, the Seraphim, the Ophanim and the holy Chayoth ascribing glory and greatness.

To the God who rested from all works, and on the seventh day was exalted and sat upon a throne of glory. With beauty the day of rest was robed, and called the Sabbath day a delight. This is the great distinction of the Sabbath day, that God rested thereon from all work, when the Sabbath day itself offered praise and said “A Psalm, a song of the Sabbath day, It is good to give thanks unto Adonai”. Therefore let all God's creatures glorify and bless God; let them render praise, honor and greatness to the God and Sovereign who is Creator of all things, and who, in holiness, gives an inheritance of rest to the people of Israel on the holy Sabbath day. Your Name, O Adonai our God, shall be hallowed, and your fame, O our Ruler, shall be proclaimed in heaven above and on the earth beneath. Be you blessed, O our Savior, for the excellency of your handiwork, and for the bright luminaries which you have made: they shall glorify you for ever.

May you be blessed, our Rock, our Ruler and Redeemer, Creator of holy ones. May your name be praised forever, our Sovereign, creator of ministering angels. All of whose ministering angels stand at the summit of the universe and proclaim -- with awe, together, loudly -- the words of the living God and Ruler of universe. (Reader) They are all beloved, they are all flawless, they are all mighty, they all do the will of their Maker with dread and reverence. And they all open their mouths in holiness and purity, in song and hymn, and bless, praise, glorify, revere, sanctify, and declare the sovereignty of --

The Name of the Divine Ruler, the great, mighty and dreaded One, holy is God; and they all take upon themselves the yoke of the kingdom of heaven one from the other, and give leave one unto the other to declare the holiness of their Creator: (Reader) in tranquil joy of spirit, with pure speech and holy melody they all respond in unison, and exclaim with awe:
HOLY, HOLY, HOLY IS ADONAI OF HOSTS: THE WHOLE EARTH IS FULL OF GOD'S GLORY.
(Reader) And the Ophanim and the holy Chayot with a noise of great rushing, upraising themselves towards the Seraphim, thus over against them offer praise and say:
BLESSED BE THE GLORY OF ADONAI FROM GOD'S PLACE.

To the blessed God they offer melodious strains; to the Ruler, the living and ever-existing God, they utter hymns and make their praises heard; for God alone works mighty deeds, and makes new things; God is the Ruler over struggle, sowing righteousness, and reaping victory. God creates healing, and is revered in praises. Adonai is the God of wonders, who in goodness renews the creation every day continually; as it is said, (O give thanks) to God that makes great lights, for God's lovingkindness endures for ever. (Reader) O cause a new light to shine upon Zion, and may we all be worthy soon to enjoy its brightness. Blessed are you, Adonai, Creator of the luminaries.

Sh'ma שמע

The first line of the Sh'ma is recited out loud and in unison, with the right hand covering the eyes.

Hear, O Israel: Adonai is our God, Adonai is one.

Sh'ma Yisra-eil, Adonai Eloheinu Adonai Echad.

שְׁמַע יִשְׂרָאֵל, יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ, יְיָ אֶחָד.

In an undertone:

Blessed is God’s glory forever and ever.]

And you shall love Adonai your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. And these words, which I command you this day, shall be upon your heart: and you shall teach them diligently unto your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise up. And you shall bind them for a sign upon your hand, and they shall be for frontlets between your eyes. And you shall write them upon the door-posts of your house, and upon your gates.

And it shall come to pass, if you shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love Adonai your God, and to serve God with all your heart and with all your soul, that I will give the rain of your land in its season, the former rain and the latter rain, that you may gather in your corn, and your wine, and your oil. And I will give grass in thy field for your cattle, and you shall eat and be satisfied. Take heed to yourselves, lest your heart be deceived, and you turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them; and the anger of Adonai be kindled against you, and God shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit; and you perish quickly from off the good land which Adonai gave you. Therefore shall you lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul; and you shall bind them for a sign upon your hand, and they shall be for frontlets between your eyes. And you shall teach them your children, talking of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise up. And you shall write them upon the doorposts of your house, and upon your gates: that your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, upon the land which Adonai swore unto your ancestors to give them, as the days of the heavens above the earth.

And Adonai spoke to Moses, saying. Speak to the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them a fringe upon the corners of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of each corner a cord of blue: and it shall be for you for a fringe, that you may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of Adonai, and do them: and that you go not about after your own heart and your own eyes, after which you go astray: that you may remember and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your God. I am Adonai your God, who brought you out of the Land of Egypt, to be your God: I am Adonai your God.

The Amidah

Avot אבות

Rise for the Amidah and face the Ark.

In some communities it is customary to take three steps backward, then three steps forward and remain standing with your feet together through the entire Amidah.

[In some communities, it is customary to insert the names of the matriarchs included here in brackets.]

Adonai, open my lips, and my mouth will declare Your praise.

IN SOME COMMUNITIES IT IS CUSTOMARY TO BEGIN THIS PRAYER WITH BOWING TOWARDS THE ARK.
Blessed are You, Adonai our God and God of our ancestors: Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, [Sarah, Rebecca, Leah, and Rachel]. The great, mighty and revered God, the most high God, who bestows lovingkindness, and is Master over all things; who remembers the pious deeds of the patriarchs and matriarchs, and in love will redeem us for their sake.

O Sovereign, Helper, Savior and Shield. Blessed are You, Adonai, the Shield of Abraham [and Sarah].

Adonai sefatai tiftach, u'fee yageed tiheelatecha.

IN SOME COMMUNITIES IT IS CUSTOMARY TO BEGIN THIS PRAYER WITH BOWING TOWARDS THE ARK.

You, O God, are mighty forever, all life is Your gift, and amazing is your saving abilities.

Winter: You cause the wind to blow and the rain to fall.

Summer: You cause the wind to blow and the dew to fall.

You sustain the living with lovingkindness, and revitalize us all with life. You support the falling, cure the sick, free the captive, and keep Your faith with those who sleep in the dust. Who is like You, Doer of mighty acts? Who resembles You, O Sovereign, who dictates between life and death, offering us salvation?

Faithful are You in revitalizing us all with life. Blessed are You, Adonai, Source of all life.

During the silent Amidah, continue with "Atah Kadosh".
During the Reader's repetition, "Kedusha" is recited at this point.

Kedusha קדושה

We will sanctify Your Name in the world, even as they sanctify It in the highest heavens, as it is written by the hand of Your prophet: And they called to each other and said: holy, holy, holy is Adonai above all. The whole earth radiates God’s glory. Then with a noise of great rushing, mighty and strong, they make their voices heard, and, upraising themselves towards the Seraphim, they exclaim: blessed be the glory of Adonai from high places. From Your place shine forth, O our Sovereign, and reign over us, for we wait for You. When will You reign in Zion? Speedily, even in our days, go dwell there, and stay forever.

May You be magnified and sanctified in the midst of Jerusalem Your city throughout all generations and for all eternity. Let our eyes behold Your greatness, according to the word that was spoken in the songs of Your righteous servant David: Adonai will reign forever, Your God, O Zion, across all generations. Praise Adonai. Across all generations we will declare Your greatness, and for all eternity we will proclaim Your holiness. Your praise, O God, shall never depart from our mouths, for You are a great and holy God and Sovereign. Blessed are You, Adonai, the holy God.

You are holy, and Your Name is holy, and the holy praise You daily. Blessed are You, Adonai, the holy God.

Sim Shalom שים שלום

Grant peace, welfare, blessing, grace, lovingkindness and mercy to us and all Your people Israel. Bless us with the light of Your countenance; for, by the light of Your countenance, You have given us the Teaching of life, lovingkindness and righteousness, blessing, mercy, life and peace. May it be good in Your sight to bless Your people Israel at all times and in every hour with Your peace. Blessed are You, Adonai our God, who blesses Your people Israel with peace.

May the One who makes peace in high places, make peace for us and for all Israel, and let us say: Amen.

Oseh shalom bimromav, hu ya-aseh shalom aleinu, v'al kol yisra-eil, v'imru amein.

עֹשֶׂה שָׁלוֹם בִּמְרוֹמָיו, הוּא יַעֲשֶׂה שָׁלוֹם עָלֵנוּ, וְעַל כָּל יִשְׂרָאֵל, וְאִמְרוּ אָמֵן

Oseh Shalom: This prayer includes a lot of repetition when we sing it. The name of this prayer means “to make peace.” Making peace is an example of the concept in Jewish Philosophy of Tikun Olam, the repair of the world. You can’t repair the world if you don’t have peace. If you have violence, whatever you repair will be destroyed. Please turn to page _____ and join us in the singing of Oseh Shalom.

The Torah Reading Service

Ein Kamocha אין כמוך

Rise as the Torah service begins with the singing of Ein Kamocha.

There is none like You among the gods, O Holy One. There are no works like Yours. Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and Your rule will endure throughout all generations
Adonai is Sovereign. Adonai was Sovereign. Adonai shall be Sovereign forever and ever. Adonai will give strength to God’s people. Adonai will bless God’s people with peace.

Ein kamocha va-elohim, Adonai, v'ein k'ma-asecha. Malchut'cha malchut kol olamim, umemshalt'cha b'chol dor vador. Adonai melech, Adonai malach, Adonai yimloch l'olam va-ed. Adonai oz l'amo yitein, Adonai y'vareich et amo vashalom.

אֵין כָּמֽוֹךָ בָאֱלֹהִים, יְיָ, וְאֵין כְּמַעֲשֶׂיךָ. מַלְכוּתְךָ מַלְכוּת כָּל עֹלָמִים, וּמֶמְשַׁלְתְּךָ בְּכָל דֹּר וָדֹר. יְיָ מֶלֶךְ, יְיָ מָלָךְ, יְיָ יִמְלֹךְ לְעֹלָם וָעֶד. יְיָ עֹז לְעַמּוֹ יִתֵּן, יְיָ יְבָרֵךְ אֶת עַמּוֹ בַשָּׁלוֹם.

Vayehi Binsoa Ha'aron ויהי בנסע הארן

Ark is opened as we begin “Vay’hi Binsoa.”

When the Ark set forward, Moses said, Rise up, O Holy One, and my enemies shall be scattered. For out of Zion shall go forth the Law, and the word of Adonai from Jerusalem.

Vay'hi binsoa ha-aron vayomer mosheh, kumah, Adonai, v'yafutzu oy'vecha, v'yanusu m'sanecha mipanecha. Ki mitziyon teitzei torah, ud'var Adonai mirushalayim.

וַיְהִי בִּנְסֽוֹעַ הָאָרֹן וַיּֽאמֶר מֹשֶׁה, קוּמָה, יְיָ, וְיָפֻצוּ אֹיְבֶיךָ, וְיָנֻסוּ מְשַׂנְאֶיךָ מִפָּנֶיךָ. כִּי מִצִּיּוֹן תֵּצֵא תוֹרָה, וּדְבַר יְיָ מִירוּשָׁלָיִם.

Sh'ma Yisrael שמע ישראל

Remove the Torah scroll from the ark and give it to the service leader.


The leader then faces the congregation as these two lines are recited responsively.

Hear, O Israel, Adonai is our God; Adonai is One.

ONE IS OUR GOD; GREAT IS OUR LORD; HOLY IS GOD'S NAME.

Sh'ma yisra-eil, Adonai eloheinu, Adonai echad.

ECHAD ELOHEYNU, GADOL ADONAYNU, KADOSH SHEMO.

שְׁמַע יִשְׂרָאֵל יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ, יְיָ אֶחָד.

אֶחָד אֱלֹהֵינוּ גָּדוֹל אֲדוֹנֵנוּ, קָדוֹשׁ וְנוֹרָא שְׁמוֹ.

Praise the Holy One with me, and let us exalt the Name together.

Gad'lu l’Adonai iti, un'rom'mah sh'mo yachdav.

גַּדְּלוּ לַייָ אִתִּי, וּנְרוֹמְמָה שְׁמוֹ יַחְדָּו.

The leader raises the Torah slightly and the community bows toward the ark as "Gadlu" is recited.

The procession of the Torah to the reading table begins.

Blessing of the Torah Before Reading

The scroll of the Torah is undressed and placed upon the reading table.

The service leader calls upon each person receiving an aliyah by his/her hebrew name followed by their father/mother's name.

When called to the Torah, the service leader will point to where the upcoming reading of the Torah begins. Traditionally, the person receiving the aliyah will then touch the corner of their tallit or a piece of the Torah dressing to the margin of the upcoming reading.

Those who are called to the Torah for an Aliyah (the honor of blessing the Torah before and after the reading of the Scroll) say the following blessing before beginning:

Blessed is Adonai who is to be praised.

Blessed is Adonai who is to praised for ever and ever.

Blessed are you Adonai our God, Ruler of the universe who chose us from all the nations and gave us your Torah. Blessed are you Adonai, Giver of the Torah.

Bar'chu et Adonai hamvorach.

Baruch Adonai hamvorach l'olam va-ed.

Baruch atah Adonai eloheinu melech ha-olam, asher bachar banu mikol ha-amim v'natan lanu et torato. Baruch atah Adonai, notein hatorah.

בָּרְכוּ אֶת יְיָ הַמְבֹרָךְ.

בָּרוּךְ יְיָ הַמְבֹרָךְ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד.

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, אֲשֶׁר בָּחַר בָּנוּ מִכָּל הָעַמִּים וְנָתַן לָנוּ אֶת תּוֹרָתוֹ. בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, נוֹתֵן הַתּוֹרָה.

Blessing of the Torah After Reading

After the Torah portion is read, the person called for the aliyah recites the following:

Blessed are you Adonai our God, Ruler of the universe who gave us a Torah of truth and through it gave us eternal life. Blessed are you Adonai, Giver of the Torah.

Baruch atah Adonai eloheinu melech ha-olam, asher natan lanu torat emet, v'chayei olam nata b'tocheinu. Baruch atah Adonai, notein ha Torah.

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, אֲשֶׁר נָתַן לָנוּ תּוֹרַת אֱמֶת, וְחַיֵּי עוֹלָם נָטַע בְּתוֹכֵנוּ. בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, נוֹתֵן הַתּוֹרָה.

Who is like our God, who like Adonai, who like our Sovereign, who like our Saviour?

We will give thanks to our God, we will give thanks to Adonai, we will give thanks to our Sovereign, we will give thanks to our Redeemer.

Blessed be our God, blessed be Adonai, blessed be our Sovereign, blessed be our Redeemer.

You are our God, You are Adonai, You are our Sovereign, You are our Redeemer.

Aleinu עלינו

Rise for Aleinu.

It is customary to bow at “va-anachnu korim” and stand up at “modim.”

It is our duty to praise the Ruler of all things, to ascribe greatness to the One who formed the world in the beginning. So we bend the knee and offer worship and thanks before the supreme Sovereign of sovereigns, the Holy One, who stretched forth the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth, the seat of whose glory is in the heavens above, and the residence of whose might is in the loftiest heights. Adonai is our God; there is none else: in truth Adonai is our Ruler; there is none else; as it is written in the Torah: “And you shall know this day, and lay it to your heart, that Adonai is God in heaven above and upon the earth beneath: there is none else."

We therefore place our hope in You, Adonai our God, that we may speedily behold the glory of Your might, when You will purify the earth, and righteousness will dominate. When the world will be perfected under the rule of the Almighty, and all the world’s children will call Your Name. When You will turn to Yourself all the evil-doers upon earth. Let all the inhabitants of the world perceive and know that to You every knee must bow, every tongue must swear allegiance. Before You, Adonai our God, let them bow and worship, and to Your glorious Name let them give honor. Let them all accept You and have You reign over them speedily, and forever and ever. The dominion is Yours, and for all eternity You will reign in glory. As it is written in Your Torah, “Adonai shall reign forever and ever.” And it is said, “Adonai shall be ruler over all the Earth: in that day, Adonai shall be One and God’s name shall be One.”

Closing Songs

Adon Olam אדון עולם

You are the Eternal God who ruled before the creation. At the time Your will directly determined what occurred, You were already ruling.

Adon olam asher malach, b'terem kol y'tzir nivra. L'eit na-asah v'cheftzo kol, azai melech sh'mo nikra.

אֲדוֹן עוֹלָם אֲשֶׁר מָלַךְ,

לְעֵת נַעֲשָׂה בְחֶפְצוֹ כֹּל,
אֲזַי מֶלֶךְ שְׁמוֹ נִקְרָא.

And when all else has failed,
You will still reign majestically.
You were, You are,
You will be in glory.

V'acharei kichlot hakol, l'vado yimloch nora. V'hu hayah, v'hu hoveh, v'hu yihyeh, b'tifarah.

וְאַחֲרֵי כִּכְלוֹת הַכֹּל,
לְבַדּוֹ יִמְלוֹךְ נוֹרָא.
וְהוּא הָיָה, וְהוּא הֹוֶה,
וְהוּא יִהְיֶה, בְּתִפְאָרָה.

You are only One. You do not rely upon or compare with any other. You exist without beginning or end. You know power that cannot be seen or experienced elsewhere.

V'hu echad v'ein sheini,

B'li reishit b'li tachlit,

You are my God. You are my Redeemer; my Rock when I am distressed; my confidence; my protection; my aide when I call on You.

V'hu eili v'chai goali,

V'hu nisi umanos li,

וְהוּא אֵלִי וְחַי גֹּאֲלִי,
וְצוּר חֶבְלִי בְּעֵת צָרָה.
וְהוּא נִסִּי וּמָנוֹס לִי,
מְנָת כּוֹסִי בְּיוֹם אֶקְרָא.

I place my soul in Your hands and trust You with it night and day. I also entrust You with my body. When I have Adonai, I shall never fear.

B'yado afkid ruchi,
