Contains personal content

A cup of wine is taken in the right hand, and the following is said:—

הִנֵּה אֵל יְשׁוּעָתִי, אֶבְטַח וְלֹא אֶפְחָד, כִּי עָזִּי וְזִמְרָת יָהּ יְיָ, וַיְהִי לִי לִישׁוּעָה. וּשְׁאַבְתֶּם מַֽיִם בְּשָׂשׂוֹן, מִמַּעַיְנֵי הַיְשׁוּעָה. לַייָ הַיְשׁוּעָה, עַל עַמְּךָ בִרְכָתֶךָ סֶּלָה. יְיָ צְבָאוֹת עִמָּנוּ, מִשְׂגָּב לָֽנוּ אֱלֹהֵי יַעֲקֹב סֶלָה. יְיָ צְבָאוֹת, אַשְׁרֵי אָדָם בֹּטֵחַ בָּךְ. יְיָ הוֹשִׁיעָה, הַמֶּֽלֶךְ יַעֲנֵנוּ בְיוֹם קָרְאֵנוּ.

לַיְּהוּדִים הָיְתָה אוֹרָה וְשִׂמְחָה וְשָׂשׂוֹן וִיקָר. כֵּן תִּהְיֶה לָּנוּ. (This line is then repeated after the service leader by everyone.)

כּוֹס יְשׁוּעוֹת אֶשָּׂא, וּבְשֵׁם יְיָ אֶקְרָא.

Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid: for God the Lord is my strength and song, and God is become my salvation. Therefore with joy shall you draw water out of the wells of salvation. Salvation belongs unto the Lord: your blessing be upon your people. (Selah.) The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. (Selah.) The Jews had light and joy and gladness and honor. (So be it with us.) I will lift the cup of salvation, and call upon the Name of the Lord.

Everyone for the first prayer will stand up from their seats. There will be one person on the bimah and will lead this prayer. The Congeragtion will be respectful and listening and say amen or any other needed words when appropriate.

The cup is again taken in the right hand, and the following is said:—

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, הַמַּבְדִיל בֵּין קֽדֶשׁ לְחוֹל, בֵּין אוֹר לְחֹֽשֶׁךְ, בֵּין יִשְׂרָאֵל לָעַמִּים, בֵּין יוֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִי לְשֵׁשֶׁת יְמֵי הַמַּעֲשֶׂה. בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, הַמַּבְדִיל בֵּין קֹדֶשׁ לְחוֹל.

Blessed are You, O Lord our God, Ruler of the universe, who makes a distinction between sacred and profane, between light and darkness, between the people of Israel and the other nations, between the seventh day and the six working days. Blessed are You, O Lord, who makes a distinction between sacred and profane.

The whole congregation will say this prayer together. It will be said strong and meaningfully.

A Good Week: Shavua Tov!

Contains personal content

שבוע טוב! (Repeat 4 times)

A good week, a week of peace, may gladness reign and joy increase (2 times)

This song is up beat and a way to end the serivce in a fun and enjoyable way. This also is saying have a good week until we see each other again. After this song, we will do a scene that Comedy Centra's Saturday Night Live did and try to understand what it meant and maybe could relate to the torah or Judaism. (examples: Jewish Actor, Jewish relation)
