I rejoiced when they said to me, “We are going to The House
of the Lord.” Our feet stood inside your gates, O Jerusalem,
Jerusalem built up, a city knit together, to which tribes
would make pilgrimage, the tribes of the Lord, as was enjoyed
upon Israel – to praise the name of the Lord. Pray for the
well-being of Jerusalem: “May those who love you be at
peace. May there be well-being within your ramparts,
peace in your citadels.” For the sake of my kin and friends,
I pray for your well-being; for the sake of the house of the
Lord our God, I seek your good.
adapted from Psalm 122
Pray for the well-being of Jerusalem:
May those who love you be at peace.
May there be well-being within your walls,
peace in your citadels. For the sake of my kin and my friends,
I pray for your well-being.

Avinu Malkeinu, tonight we are roused by the shofar’s blast.
We awaken to the world’s rebirth and rejoice in the earth’s

we pray to turn outward and renew our relationship to all
Creation.

you lie down and when you rise up. Bind them as a sign upon your

REDEMPTION
vkutd
G’ULAH
You are the one God. We pray that all creation will take up
Your promise of justice and tolerance. Let us beat our swords
into plowshares; let us beat our spears into pruning-hooks. Let
nation not lift up sword against nation; let us study war no more.
We shall not hate others; we shall love our neighbors as
ourselves. We shall consider the strangers among us as our own; we
were strangers in the land of Egypt. May all who are oppressed burst
forth from bondage. In celebration of our
freedom, we sing:
Mi chamochah ba-eilim Adonai?
?²h±h ohk¥tC vf«nf h¦n
Who is like You, Eternal One, among the gods
that are worshipped?
Mi kamochah nedar bakodesh,

In their escape from the sea, Your children saw Your sovereign
might displayed. “This is my God!” they cried. “The Eternal
will reign for ever and ever!”

peace and an advocate of peace among the nations. May contentment reign within its borders, health and happiness within its
homes. Strengthen the bonds of friendship among the inhabitants
of all lands, and may a yearning for your promise of peace inspire
every home and every heart. Teach us, O God, to labor for righteousness, and inscribe us in the Book of Life, for blessing and

It came to pass at a time of drought
that Rabbi Eliezer went before the congregation
and said twenty-four prayers,
but his prayers were not answered.
Then Rabbi Akiva came forward and intoned:
“Avinu Malkeinu, Hear our prayer
and have mercy upon us.”
And his prayer was answered.

You are our God; there is none else. In truth You alone
are our Sovereign God, as it is written: “Know then this day
and take it to heart: the Eternal One is God in the heavens
above and on the earth below; there is none else.”
Eternal God, we face the morrow with hope made stronger
by the vision of Your deliverance, a world where poverty
and war are banished, where injustice and hate are gone.
Teach us more and more to respond to the pain of others,
to heed Your call for justice, that we may bring nearer the day
when all the world shall be one.
On that day the age-old dream shall come true. On that day, O
God,You shall be One and Your Name shall be One.

you lie down and when you rise up. Bind them as a sign upon your

Imagine ourselves, enslaved in Egypt.
We watch our parents bending under the weight of stones and our
children beaten by the taskmasters’ whips.
Imagine hearing a call from Moses that we are to go free,
and gathering at the city’s gates to embark upon a trek into
an unknown wilderness.
We arrive at the water’s edge, trembling as the Egyptians charged
at us from the crest of the hills. Caught between the water and
their chariots, imagine the seas parting and our struggle to the far
shore.
We look behind to see the waters close and realize that we
have survived. Imagining this deliverance, we comprehend
our ancestors’ joy and sing this song as they did:
Mi chamochah ba-eilim Adonai?

presence, for in the light of Your presence we have found a teaching of
life, the love of mercy, the law of justice, and the way of peace: for it is
ever Your will that Your people Israel be blessed with peace.
Teach us, O God, to labor for righteousness, and inscribe us
in the Book of Life, for blessing and peace. Blessed are You, Eternal

OUR ACCOUNTING
;¤e«T v®B©,±bU
UN’TANEH TOKEF
;e, vb,bu
It is said that the words we are about to
utter were born of
the martyrdom of Rabbi Amnon of Mayence. He chose to die
that his faith might live.
Three days after his death, Rabbi Amnon appeared to a
colleague in a dream and taught him the liturgical poem
beginning “Let us proclaim the sacred power of this day....”
And he ordered him to send it as remembrance and testimony
to all Jewish communities. He believed that if we make the
effort to turn, every force of goodness, within and without,
will help us to escape that death of the heart which leads
to sin.
Year after year we shudder at the reality of this prayer. How
many shall pass on, how many shall come to be; who shall live
and who shall die. The words remind us of our changing lives
and fortunes. Reflecting upon the tragedies and victories of
this past year, we take account of our communal experiences
as well as our own personal losses and joys. . . .
These are days of reflection and of hope.
Un’taneh tokef k’dushat hayom,
ki hu nora v’ayom;
uvo tinasei malchutecha
v’yikon b’che-sed kisecha

On this day Your dominion is honored,
Your throne established:
There in truth You reign.
You are Judge and all power is with You.
You write and You seal,You record and recount.
You remember deeds long forgotten. You write in the book of
our days and what is written there will be proclaimed in our
lives for we are in Your hands.
We are in awe and filled with dread.

Among the sounds of the Shofar, we yearn to hear a still
small voice, the voice of angels who delcare:
This is the Day of Judgment!
All who dwell on earth stand arrayed before You!
As the shepherd seeks the flock and counts the sheep as they
pass under the staff, so do You number and consider every
soul and set the bounds of every life, decreeing its destiny.

On Rosh HaShanah it is written, on Yom Kippur it is sealed:
How many shall pass on, how many shall come to be;
who shall live and who shall die;
who shall see ripe age and who shall not;
who shall perish by fire and who by water;
46
who by sword and who by beast;
who by hunger and who by thirst;
who by earthquake and who by plague;
who by strangling and who by stoning;
who shall be secure and who shall be driven;
who shall be tranquil and who shall be troubled;
who shall be poor and who shall be rich;
who shall be humbled and who exalted.
But we trust that repentance, prayer and tzedakah
will temper the severity of the decree.

GENESIS 21:1-21
1 The Lord took note of Sarah as He had promised, and the Lord
did for Sarah as He had spoken. 2 Sarah conceived and bore a son
to Abraham in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken.
3 Abraham gave his newborn son, whom Sarah had borne him, the
name of Isaac. 4 And when his son Isaac was eight days old,
Abraham circumcised him, as God had commanded him.
5 Now Abraham was a hundred years old when his son Isaac was
born to him. 6 Sarah said, “God has brought me laughter; everyone
who hears will laugh with me.” 7 And she added, “Who would have
said to Abraham that Sarah would suckle children! Yet I have borne
a son in his old age.” 8 The child grew up and was weaned, and
Abraham held a great feast on the day that Isaac was weaned.
9 Sarah saw the son whom Hagar the Egyptian had borne to
Abraham playing. 10 She said to Abraham, “Cast out that
slave-woman and her son, for the son of that slave shall not share
in the inheritance with my son Isaac.” 11 The matter distressed
Abraham greatly, for it concerned a son of his. 12 But God said to
Abraham, “Do not be distressed over the boy or your slave; whatever
Sarah tells you, do as she says, for it is through Isaac that offspring
shall be continued for you.
13 As for the son of the slave-woman, I will make a nation of him,
too, for he is your seed.” 14 Early next morning Abraham took some
bread and a skin of water, and gave them to Hagar. He placed them
over her shoulder, together with the child, and sent her away. And
she wandered about in the wilderness of Beer-sheba. 15 When the
water was gone from the skin, she left the child under one of the
bushes, 16 and went and sat down at a distance, a bowshot away;
for she thought, “Let me not look on as the child dies.” And sitting
thus afar, she burst into tears. 17 God heard the cry of the boy, and
an angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and said to her, “What
troubles you, Hagar? Fear not, for God has heeded the cry of the
boy where he is. 18 Come, lift up the boy and hold him by the hand,
for I will make a great nation of him.” 19 Then God opened her eyes
and she saw a well of water. She went and filled the skin with water,
and let the boy drink. 20 God was with the boy and he grew up; he
dwelt in the wilderness and became a bowman. 21 He lived in the
wilderness of Paran; and his mother got a wife for him from the land
of Egypt.

GENESIS 22:1-19
1 Some time afterward, God put Abraham to the test. He said to
him, “Abraham,” and he answered, “Here I am.” 2 And He said,
“Take your son, your favored one, Isaac, whom you love, and go to
the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one
of the heights that I will point out to you.” 3 So early next morning,
Abraham saddled his ass and took with him two of his servants and
his son Isaac. He split the wood for the burnt offering, and he set
out for the place of which God had told him.
4 On the third day Abraham looked up and saw the place from afar.
5 Then Abraham said to his servants, “You stay here with the ass.
The boy and I will go up there; we will worship and we will return
to you.” 6 Abraham took the wood for the burnt offering and put it
55
on his son Isaac. He himself took the firestone and the knife;
and the two walked off together. 7 Then Isaac said to his
father Abraham, “Father!” And he answered, “Yes, my son.”
And he said, “Here are the firestone and the wood; but where
is the sheep for the burnt offering?” 8 And Abraham said,
“God will see to the sheep for His burnt offering, my son.”
And the two of them walked on together.
9 They arrived at the place of which God had told him.
Abraham built an altar there; he laid out the wood; he bound
his son Isaac; he laid him on the altar, on top of the wood.
10 And Abraham picked up the knife to slay his son. 11 Then
an angel of the Lord called to him from heaven: “Abraham!
Abraham!” And he answered, “Here I am.” 12 And he said,
“Do not raise your hand against the boy, or do anything to
him. For now I know that you fear God, since you have not
withheld your son, your favored one, from Me.” 13 When
Abraham looked up, his eye fell upon a ram, caught in the
thicket by its horns. So Abraham went and took the ram and
offered it up as a burnt offering in place of his son. 14 And
Abraham named that site Adonai-yireh, whence the present
saying, “On the mount of the Lord there is vision.”
15 The angel of the Lord called to Abraham a second time
from heaven, 16 and said, “By Myself I swear, the Lord
declares: Because you have done this and have not withheld
your son, your favored one, 17 I will bestow My blessing
upon you and make your descendants as numerous as the
stars of heaven and the sands on the seashore; and your
descendants shall seize the gates of their foes. 18 All the
nations of the earth shall bless themselves by your descendants, because you have obeyed My command.” 19 Abraham
then returned to his servants, and they departed together for
Beer-sheba; and Abraham stayed in Beer-sheba.

FROM FIRST SAMUEL I
1 There was a man from Ramathaim of the Zuphites, in the
hill country of Ephraim, whose name was Elkanah son of
Jeroham son of Elihu son of Tohu son of Zuph, an
Ephraimite. 2 He had two wives, one named Hannah and the
other Peninnah; Peninnah had children, but Hannah was
childless. 3 This man used to go up from his town every year
to worship and to offer sacrifice to the Lord of Hosts at
Shiloh. Hophni and Phinehas, the two sons of Eli, were priests
of the Lord there. 4 One such day, Elkanah offered a sacrifice.
He used to give portions to his wife Peninnah and to all her
sons and daughters; 5 but to Hannah he would give one
portion only – though Hannah was his favorite – for the Lord
had closed her womb.
9 After they had eaten and drunk at Shiloh, Hannah rose.
The priest Eli was sitting on the seat near the doorpost of the
temple of the Lord. 10 In her wretchedness, she prayed to
the Lord, weeping all the while. 11 And she made this vow:
“O Lord of Hosts, if You will look upon the suffering of Your
maidservant and will remember me and not forget Your maidservant, and if You will grant Your maidservant a male child,
I will dedicate him to the Lord for all the days of his life; and
no razor shall ever touch his head.” 12 As she kept on praying
before the Lord, Eli watched her mouth. 13 Now Hannah was
praying in her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice could
not be heard. So Eli thought she was drunk. 14 Eli said to her,
58
“How long will you make a drunken spectacle of yourself?
Sober up!” 15 And Hannah replied, “Oh no, my lord! I am a
very unhappy woman. I have drunk no wine or other strong
drink, but I have been pouring out my heart to the Lord. 16
Do not take your maidservant for a worthless woman; I have
only been speaking all this time out of my great anguish and
distress.” 17 “Then go in peace,” said Eli, “and may the God
of Israel grant you what you have asked of Him.” 18 She
answered, “You are most kind to your handmaid.” So the
woman left, and she ate, and was no longer downcast. 19
Early next morning they bowed low before the Lord, and they
went back home to Ramah.
Elkanah knew his wife Hannah and the Lord remembered her.
20 Hannah conceived, and at the turn of the year bore a son.
She named him Samuel, meaning, “I asked the Lord for him.”
21 And when the man Elkanah and all his household were
going up to offer to the Lord the annual sacrifice and his
votive sacrifice, 22 Hannah did not go up. She said to her husband, “When the child is weaned, I will bring him. For when
he has appeared before the Lord, he must remain there for
good.” 23 Her husband Elkanah said to her, “Do as you think
best. Stay home until you have weaned him. May the Lord
fulfill His word.” So the woman stayed home and nursed her
son until she weaned him. 24 When she had weaned him, she
took him up with her, along with three bulls, one ephah of
flour, and a jar of wine. And though the boy was still very
young, she brought him to the House of the Lord at Shiloh.
25 After slaughtering the bull, they brought the boy to Eli. 26
She said, “Please, my lord! As you live, my lord, I am the
woman who stood here beside you and prayed to the Lord. 27
It was this boy I prayed for; and the Lord has granted me
what I asked of Him. 28 I, in turn, hereby lend him to the
Lord. For as long as he lives he is lent to the Lord.” And they
bowed low there before the Lord.

Jeremiah 31:1-16
1 Thus said the Lord: 2 The people escaped from the sword,
Found favor in the wilderness; When Israel was marching
homeward 3 The Lord revealed Himself to me of old. Eternal
love I conceived for you then; Therefore I continue My grace
to you. 4 I will build you firmly again, O Maiden Israel! Again
you shall take up your timbrels and go forth to the rhythm of
the dancers. 5 Again you shall plant vineyards on the hills of
Samaria; Men shall plant and live to enjoy them. 6 For the day
is coming when watchmen shall proclaim on the heights of
Ephraim: Come, let us go up to Zion, to the Lord our God!
7 For thus said the Lord: Cry out in joy for Jacob, shout at the
crossroads of the nations! Sing aloud in praise, and say: Save,
O Lord, Your people, the remnant of Israel. 8 I will bring them
in from the northland, gather them from the ends of the earth
– the blind and the lame among them, those with child and
those in labor – in a vast throng they shall return here.
9 They shall come with weeping, and with compassion will I
guide them. I will lead them to streams of water, by a level
road where they will not stumble. For I am ever a Father to
Israel, Ephraim is My first-born.
10 Hear the word of the Lord, O nations, and tell it in the isles
afar. Say: He who scattered Israel will gather them, and will
guard them as a shepherd his flock. 11 For the Lord will ransom Jacob, redeem him from one too strong for him. 12 They
shall come and shout on the heights of Zion, radiant over the
bounty of the Lord – over new grain and wine and oil, and
over sheep and cattle. They shall fare like a watered garden,
they shall never languish again.
13 Then shall maidens dance gaily, young men and old alike.
I will turn their mourning to joy, I will comfort them and cheer
them in their grief. 14 I will give the priests their fill of fatness,
60
and My people shall enjoy My full bounty – declares the
Lord: 15 Thus said the Lord: A cry is heard in Ramah – wailing, bitter weeping – Rachel weeping for her children. She
refuses to be comforted For her children, who are gone. 16
Thus said the Lord: Restrain your voice from weeping, your
eyes from shedding tears; For there is a reward for your labor.

Adonai descended upon Mount Sinai in fire; smoke tumbled

resounded.
May You be present to us as You were at Sinai.
Help us to know You when we strive to create the good and the
beautiful, and when we work for justice and peace.
The psalmist affirms: God stands revealed amid acclamation:
the Eternal One, amid the sound of the shofar.
The prophet declares: All you who dwell on earth, who inhabit the
world, when the shofar is sounded, take heed!
The Eternal God will cause the shofar to be sounded and
stride forth with the stormwinds of the South. Thus, O God,
will You shield Your people with peace.

soon prevail, in our day, our own lives, and the life of all
Israel, and let us say: Amen.
Let God’s great name be blessed for ever and ever.
Let the name of the Holy One, blessed is God, be glorified,
exalted and honored, though God is beyond all the praises,
songs, and adorations that we can utter, and let us say: Amen.
For us and all of Israel, may the blessing of peace and the
promise of life come true, and let us say: Amen.
May the One who causes peace to reign in the high heavens,
let peace descend on us, on all Israel, and all humanity,
and let us say: Amen.
May the Source of peace send peace to all who mourn, and
comfort to all who are bereaved. Amen.
We are seated

ALL THE WORLD
uh,thu
VAYE-ETAYU
All the world shall come to serve Thee,
And bless Thy glorious name,
And Thy righteousness triumphant,
The islands shall acclaim.
Yea the peoples shall go seeking who knew Thee not before,
And the ends of earth shall praise Thee,
And tell Thy greatness o’er.
They shall build for Thee their altars,
Their idols overthrown,
And their graven gods shall shame them
As they turn to Thee alone.
They shall worship Thee at sunrise,
And feel Thy kingdom’s might,
And impart Thy understanding,
To those astray in the night.
With the coming of Thy kingdom
The hills will shout with song,
And the islands laugh exultant,
That they to God belong.
And through all Thy congregations
So loud Thy praise shall ring,
That the utmost peoples, hearing,
Shall hail Thee crowned King.
