Rosh Hashanah Bless the Lord! Bless the Lord who is worthy to be praised for all eternity!
Candle Lighting Blessed are you, Oh Lord, our God, King of the Universe, who has made us holy and commanded us to light the Yom Tov candle. Blessed are you, Oh Lord, our God, King of the Universe, for keeping us alive, taking care of us, and bringing us to this time.
"Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)" You call me out upon the waters The great unknown where feet may fail And there I find You in the mystery In oceans deep My faith will stand
And I will call upon Your name And keep my eyes above the waves When oceans rise My soul will rest in Your embrace For I am Yours and You are mine
Your grace abounds in deepest waters Your sovereign hand Will be my guide Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me You've never failed and You won't start now
So I will call upon Your name And keep my eyes above the waves When oceans rise My soul will rest in Your embrace For I am Yours and You are mine
Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders Let me walk upon the waters Wherever You would call me Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander And my faith will be made stronger In the presence of my Savior (repeat 6X)
I will call upon Your name Keep my eyes above the waves My soul will rest in Your embrace I am Yours and You are mine …
"Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)" Amazing grace How sweet the sound That saved a wretch like me I once was lost, but now I'm found Was blind, but now I see 'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear And grace my fears relieved How precious did that grace appear The hour I first believed
My chains are gone I've been set free My God, my Savior has ransomed me And like a flood His mercy reigns Unending love, amazing grace The Lord has promised good to me His word my hope secures He will my shield and portion be As long as life endures
My chains are gone I've been set free My God, my Savior has ransomed me And like a flood His mercy reigns Unending love, amazing grace
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow The sun forbear to shine But God, Who called me here below, Will be forever mine. You are forever mine.
Shir Hama’alos Perek 130 From deep troubles I called to You, Adonai. My Master, listen to what I say; please hear what I am begging for. If You keep all our sins, who would survive? You can forgive our sins, so we fear You. I trust in You, Adonai, I long to hear You. My soul yearns for You, Adonai, more than the night- watchman waits for the morning. Let Israel hope for Adonai, because Adonai is kind, and great. Salvation (Yeshua) is with Him. He will save Israel from all its sins.
And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your might. And these words, which I command to you this day, shall be on your heart. And you shall teach them diligently to your children, thinking 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 as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontals on your forehead. And you shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. Baruch HASHEM
Blow the shofar at the beginning of this new month, at the time of our holiday, because it is a law for Kingdom people to do so, a Judgment Day for Adonai. Rosh Hashanah is a day for God to judge the world.
Galatians 3:7 Understand, then, that those who believe are children of Abraham.
Blessing 1: Fathers Blessed are You, Oh Lord, our God and the God of our fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, the great, mighty powerful and supreme God; Who is kind and owns everything, Who remembers the good deeds of our fathers, and brings Messiah to their grandchildren, for His sake, with love.
Remember us for life, King Who wants life. Write us in the Book of Life – for Your sake. You are the King, Who saves us and helps and protects us. Blessed are You, Hashem, the protector of Abraham.
Blessing 2: God’s Power You are powerful forever, my Lord. You bring the dead back to life, You are able to save. You keep us alive with kindness. You bring the dead back to life. You support those who fall. You heal the sick. You free the prisoners. And You keep Your promise to the dead (to bring them back to life).
Who is like You, our King, Who causes people to die, and brings them back to life, and Who makes salvation (Yeshua) grow. Who is like You, Father of mercy, Who remembers everyone in order that they live! We trust you to bring the dead back to life. Blessed are You, Hashem, Who brings the dead back to life!
Blessing 3: The Holiness of Adonai You are holy and Your Name is holy, and holy ones praise You every day, forever. And so, also, Hashem, our God, let all Your creations fear You, and be in awe of You. Let all Your creations fear You and bow down before You. Let them all unite and join together to do Your Will.
We know that everything is Yours, You are all- powerful, and Your Name brings fear into everything that You have created. And so, also, Hashem, our God, give honor to Your nation, and praise to those who fear You. Give hope to those who seek You; and let those who hope to You be able to speak proudly; bring Happiness to Your Land, and joy to Your city, Yerushalayim. Prepare the way for the Mashiach (Messiah) the descendant of King David, to come (again) quickly in our time.
And so, also, the righteous will then see and be happy, and they will sing with joy. Sin will be quiet, and all things wicked will blow away like smoke, when You will take away the power of wickedness from the world. Then You, Adonai, will rule over all Your creation, on Mount Zion, the resting place of Your Shechinah, in Jerusalem, Your holy city. As it is written in the Psalms, Adonai will rule forever, from generation to generation. Halleluyah.
You are holy and Your Name is full of fear. There is no god other than You, as it is written, Adonai, Master of the armies, will be exalted in judgment, and the holy God will be made holy in righteousness. Blessed are You, Adonai, the holy King.

Torah Reading Day 1: Birth of Isaac Day 2: Abraham takes Isaac to sacrifice
This is the Torah which Moses set before the Children of Israel, as commanded by the LORD, by the hand of Moses. It is a symbol, a shadow, a forerunner of the living Word of God, Yeshua HaMashiach. For Yeshua Himself has said to us [lift Torah scroll] “And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw all people unto Myself.”
Torah Is Rolled and Dressed We draw near to the Word, for the Word first drew near to us and emptied Himself and became like us. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The Word became flesh and dwelt among us. And we beheld His glory, Glory as of the only begotten of the Father, Full of grace and truth.”
Torah Carried to the Ark It is a tree of life to those who take hold of it, and happy are those who uphold it. Its ways are ways of pleasantness, and its paths are paths of peace. Torah is restored to the Ark
Congregation: Hashivenu Adonai eleicha v’nashuvah. Chadosh, chadosh yameinu, Chadosh yameinu kekedem. Cause us to return to You, O LORD, and we shall return. Renew our hearts as in days of old.
The Books Are Opened Book of the wholly righteous Book of the wholly unrighteous (the wicked) Book of the undecided
The Books Are Closed Book of the wholly righteous Book of the wholly unrighteous (wicked) *Their judgment is determined by the book they are in
The Book That Remains Open The Book of the undecided ◦Stays open until Yom Kippur ◦Days of Awe are an opportunity to draw close to God and move your name to the Book of the Wholly Righteous ◦Rabbi’s believe MOST people are in this book and celebrations of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are focused on renewing oneself before God for the coming year
Revelation 20:12, 15 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is [the book] of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.... And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
Y'hei shlama raba min-sh'maya v'chayim aleinu v'al-kol-yisrael, v'im'ru: "amen." Oseh shalom bimromav, hu ya'aseh shalom aleinu v'al kol-yisrael, v'imru: “amen." Glorified and sanctified be God's great name throughout the world which He has created according to His will. May He establish His kingdom in your lifetime and during your days, and within the life of the entire House of Israel, speedily and soon; and say, Amen. May His great name be blessed forever and to all eternity.
Blessed and praised, glorified and exalted, extolled and honored, adored and lauded be the name of the Holy One, blessed be He, beyond all the blessings and hymns, praises and consolations that are ever spoken in the world; and say, Amen. May there be abundant peace from heaven, and life, for us and for all Israel; and say, Amen. He who creates peace in His celestial heights, may He create peace for us and for all Israel; and say, Amen.
Shofar Blasts Sounds: Tekiah - 3 second sustained note; Shevarim - 3 1-second notes rising in tone; Teruah - series of short, staccato notes extending over a period of about 3 seconds; and Tekiah Gedolah (big tekiah) - the final blast which lasts about 10 seconds
Symbolism: According to Rabbi David Kimchi, the first blast is joyous and represents our innocence as newborn babies, unhindered by sin; the second blast expresses the pain in our soul as we grow and become exposed to the brokenness in the world and as we are tested and struggle and fail; the final simple shofar blasts that end each section express the return of joy to our souls after repentance and restoration.
Hayom Haras Olam Today is the birthday of the world. Today, all people that Adonai created standing judgment - both as His children and as His servants. If we are as children, please have mercy like a rathe on his children. And if we are as servants, we long for You to be gracious to us, and give us a good verdict, O awesome Holy God.
Areshes Sefaseinu May our words be pleasant to You, O God in Heaven. You are the One Who understands and listens, Who looks closely and hears the sounds of the shofar. May You accept our prayers with mercy.
Children Are Blessed Yevarekhekha Adonai veyishmerekha Ya’er Adonai panav eleykha vichunekha Yisa Adonai panav eleykha veyasem lekha shalom May the Lord bless you and keep you May the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you May the Lord turn his countenance upon you and grant you His peace
