  1. 1. High Holiday Prayer Book for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur A CONTEMPORARY SERVICE Marlboro Jewish Center Congregation Ohev Shalom Marlboro, New Jersey
  2. 2. THE REASONS FOR THIS PRAYER BOOK I have had the pleasure of creating and officiating at this unique service since its inception which has been offered at the synagogue every year since 1985. For 21 consecutive years, this service has given our members the opportunity to attain a spiritual experience that they could not find in a traditional High Holiday service. Our contemporary service has never been viewed as a replacement for the traditional service. Instead, this service offers an alternative to that large segment of our membership that either has felt unfulfilled by the traditional services offered at most Conservative synagogues or have been made uncomfortable by the overwhelming amount of Hebrew that is used in the traditional High Holiday services. In this day and age, we should use all available techniques in our prayer services to generate strong spiritual feelings. Our prayer books should not be strictly linear, with word following word, line after line and page after page. Many people gain most of their information from non-linear media. Many synagogue members don’t read Hebrew; certainly they don’t benefit from pages filled with letters they cannot decipher. If most of us get most of the information we need in our daily lives through more than one medium, why shouldn’t our prayer books acknowledge that truth? This the fourth edition of the machzor offered by the Marlboro Jewish Center. It includes, along with new contemporary readings and photos, material on such events as the tragedy of 9/11 as part of the Martyrology service on Yom Kippur. Conservative Judaism is a pluralistic movement. People who attend alternative Conservative prayer services should not be ostracized because they want an approach to prayer unlike the one they are expected to want. In his seminal work, Tradition and Change, Rabbi Mordecai Waxman describes the Conservative movement as a tent large enough to include people who hold a range of different perspectives. The early Chavurah movement of the late 60s, of which I was a member, also saw itself as offering one more authentic Jewish choice. Once again, the Marlboro Jewish Center will be packed with nearly 3,000 people. Of them, as every year, at least 800 of them will pray at the contemporary service; the other 2,000 will be at the traditional services. At 1 p.m. all the services will end and all the shul’s members will gather in the lobby of our synagogue or on its front lawn, wishing each other a “Shanah Tova.”All that matters is our community will come together under the roof of our synagogue, and we will all pray together. We’ll be in different rooms, using different books, singing different melodies – but we’ll all be together. Special thanks must be given to the following members of the committee who worked on this latest edition. Robin Farber, Eric Miller, Natalie Loeb, Babette Mallow, Judy Olesh, Nancy Rheingold, Phylis Schnall, Leonard Zimmerman, Pierre and Natalie Olesinski, Joyce Sugarman, David and Helaine Cantos, Cris Gansman, Joanne Kirschner, Vera Gordon, Roberta Newman, Alan Solomon, Zelda Liebowitz, and Sheryl Metzger. But one shines brighter than all others, Ira Kirschner whose dedication, creativity and love of Judaism will guarantee him and his family, blessings that knows no bounds. I would also like to thank Rabbi Jules Harlowe and the Rabbinical Assembly for permission to reprint selections from the Mahzor for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur and Mahzor Chadash, edited by Rabbi Sidney Greenberg and Rabbi Jonathan Levine. May we grow and prosper in our souls and our bodies as we experience the wonderful world of T’fillah. Allan Sugarman June 2006

For all these we offer praise to You. For the ability to tell light from dark, right from wrong. For creating us in your image. For the gift of freedom. For the privilege of being Jewish. For the ability to see. For the garments that clothe us. For the yearning of slaves to be free. For the power to stand up under our burdens. For the orderly universe in which we live. For providing our daily needs. For the guidance to do right. For endowing our people with strength. For crowning Israel with glory. For the privilege of awakening to a new day. - 3 -
  7. 7. I am a Jew because Judaism demands no abdication of my mind. I am a Jew because Judaism asks every possible sacrifice of my soul. I am a Jew because whenever there are tears and suffering the Jew weeps. I am a Jew because whenever the cry of despair is heard the Jew hopes. I am a Jew because the message of Judaism is the oldest and the newest. I am a Jew because the promise of Judaism is a universal promise. I am a Jew because, for the Jew, the world is not finished; human beings will complete it. I am a Jew because, for the Jew, humanity is not fully created; people are creating it. I am a Jew because Judaism places humanity above nations and above Judaism itself. I am a Jew because, above humanity, Judaism places the Oneness of God. Edmond Fleg Baruch She’amar Ve Haya Olam Blessed is the One who spoke and the world came into being. Let us always remember the power of the spoken word. Everlasting is the word that heals. Stinging is the scornful word. Soothing is the word of true emotion. Even the word of infants can reach the heavens. Dreams begin with words. In our voice we find the power to create the world anew. Simply listening to the other’s voice is the greatest blessing we can offer. Too often we choose not to speak when we must. Help us oh Lord to speak only when it is helpful. Eloquence is a matter of subject when we speak on your behalf. Open our ears to your blessing. Never are we alone in your blessing Enter our hearts through your blessing. --Rabbi Jonathan Infeld ,`Ed KEx¨A ,m¨lFr¨d d¨i¨d§e x©n¨`¤W KEx¨A ,d¤ r§e x¥nF` KEx¨A ,zi¦W` ¥x§a d¤ r KEx¨A ,u ¤x«¨`¨d l ©r m¥g ©x§n KEx¨A ,m¥I©w§nE x¥fFB KEx¨A ,ei¨` ¥xi¦l aFh x¨k¨U m¥N©W§n KEx¨A ,zFI ¦x§A©d l ©r m¥g ©x§n KEx¨A .Fn§W KEx¨A ,li¦S©nE d¤cFR KEx¨A ,g©v«¤p¨l m¨I©w§e c ©r¨l i©g KEx¨A x¨t§nE g¨AªW§n ,FO ©r i¦t§A l¨N ªd§n©d ,o¨n£g ©x¨d a¨`¨d l¥`¨d ,m¨lFr¨d K¤l«¤n Epi«¥l¡` ¨i§i d¨Y©` KEx¨A L§l¤C©b§p ,zFx¦n§f¦aE zFg¨a§W¦A Epi«¥l¡` ¨i§i L§l¤N©d§p .L«§C§a ©r c¦e ¨c i ¥xi¦W§aE ,ei¨c¨a £r©e ei¨ci¦q£g oFW§l¦A g¨AªW§n K¤l«¤n ,mi¦n¨lFr¨d i¥g ,ci¦g¨i ,Epi«¥l¡` Ep«¥M§l©n ,L§ki¦l§n©p§e ,L§n¦W xi¦M§f©p§e L §x¤`¨t§pE L£g¥A§W§pE :zFg¨A§W¦Y©A l¨N ªd§n K¤l«¤n ,¨i§i d¨Y©` KEx¨A :lFc¨B©d Fn§W c ©r i¥c £r x¨t§nE - 4 -
  8. 8. May the door of this synagogue be wide enough to receive all who hunger for love, all who are lonely for fellowship. May it welcome all who have cares to unburden, thanks to express, hopes to nurture. May the door of this synagogue be narrow enough to shut out the pettiness and pride, envy and enmity. May its threshold be no stumbling block to young or straying feet. May it be too high to admit complacency, selfishness, and harshness. May this synagogue be, for all who enter, the doorway to a richer and more meaningful life. TEACH ME TO PRAISE Teach me, my God, to praise and to pray For the mystery of the withered leaf, For the glow of the ripened fruit; For the freedom to see, to feel, To breathe, to know, to hope, to stumble. Teach my lips a blessing, a hymn of praise, As you renew each morning and each night; Lest this day appear as yesterday And the day before- Lest my day become routine.

  10. 10. Translation of ASHREI And let us be joyful that we are here together, Because we seek honestly the path of our prayer Constantly I seek the right way though it may take a lifetime. Daily I look for clues. The search is an arduous one. Existence of man itself is a testimony to the majesty of Man's Creator. Forward my mind will go seek, perhaps to find. Great are the sights, my goals, my reaching out. Heavenward do I stretch; to grasp the richness of our heritage. In loving kindness and consideration shall I pledge my days. Judaism teaches me to be human. Kind is the great man; just is the honest man. Loving is the universal man; I strive to be better. My vision is as high as the best that man can achieve. Never will I forget the roots of my past. Onward does good deeds go, from words to action. Piety is the action of giving one to the other. Reaching out is the essence of giving to each other. So many miles to go before I sleep... To rest...Under God.... Wake up and be joyful, for we are here together. Photo by Bill Aron - 7 -
  11. 11. Courage You dare to call us partners; We will live, one day at a time, performing signs and wonders for the benefit of others. This we promise You. You dare to call us little lower than the angels; We will use our face and hands to be Your messengers. To this we commit ourselves this day. You dare to tell us we are fashioned in Your image; We will be this Image, live our lives by the most Divine in us, and in this Image listen to Your words and do Your will. So we solemnly declare this day. Your Mitzvah opportunities await. Give us strength: we vow to do Your will as, by Your light and guidance, our hearts and souls so move us.

  12. 12. Psalm 17, You Are a Consolation(Adapted) O God, You are a consolation to Your creatures, for in moments of forgetting we but call to mind Your care, and we are comforted. When we hope no more, a pattern in the snow reminds us of Your lovingkindness. Your dawns give us confidence, and sleep is a friend. Our sorrows dissipate in the presence of an infant’s smile, and our Elders’wise words revive our will-to-wish. Your hints are everywhere, Your signals in the most remote of places. You are here, and we fail words to say, “Mah Tov!”— How good our breath, our rushing energies, our silences of love. by Danny Siegel Psalm 121 — a song of ascent: (Adapted) I lift up my eyes to the hills. What is the source of my help? My help comes from the Lord, Maker of the heavens and the earth. God will not allow you to stumble, Your Guardian will not slumber. Indeed, the Guardian of Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps. The Lord is your Guardian, your shelter at your side. The sun will not smite you by day nor the moon by night. The Lord will guard you against all evil; God will guard you, body and soul. The Lord will guard your going out and your coming home, now and forever. by Danny Siegel Photo by Bill Aron - 9 -

  14. 14. For these we give thanks O God, to whom we come so often with needs to be satisfied, we come to You now in gratitude for what we already have and are. For gifts beyond deserving or counting, we give thanks. You have given us the ability to become more than we have been, the urge to be more than we are, and a gnawing hunger to attain heights only dimly imagined. For the power to grow, we give thanks. You have endowed us with the capacity to discern the difference between right and wrong; and You have enabled us to follow the right, to avoid the wrong. For the power to choose, we give thanks. You have blessed us with the ability to fashion things of beauty, to sing new songs, to spin new tales, to add to the treasure-house of humancivilization. For the power to create, we give thanks. You have equipped us with the yearning to commune with You, to bring You our fears and our dreams, our hurts and our joys, our guilt and our gratitude; to share hopes and concerns with You and with others. For the power to pray, we give thanks. You have fortified us with the ability to rise above disappointment and failure, to go on after we have been bruised and bereaved, to refuse to submit to defeat and despair. For the power to hope, we give thanks. You have enlarged us with the ability to cherish others, to make their lives as dear to us as our very own, to share their hopes, to feel their hurts, to know their hearts. For the power to love, we give thanks. You have ennobled us with the strength to overcome our faults, to mend our ways, and to answer the summons “to turn to You with all our heart and soul.” For the possibilities of renewal, we give thanks! - 11 -

  17. 17. Why should I wish to see God better than this day? I see something of God each hour of the twenty four, and each moment then; In the faces of men and women I see God, and in my own face in the glass; I find letters from God dropped in the street, and everyone is signed by God's name; And I leave them where they are, for I know that wheresoe'er I go Others will punctually come forever and ever. Walt Whitman I see You in the starry field, I see You in the harvest's yield, In every breath, in every sound, An echo of Your name is found. The blade of grass, the simple flower, Bear witness to Your matchless power. In wonder-workings, or some bush aflame, Men looking for God and fancy Him concealed; But in earth's common things He stands revealed While grass and flowers and stars spell out His name. Ibn Ezra God, where shall I find Thee, whose glory fills the universe? Behold I find Thee wharever the mind is free to follow its own bent, Wharever words come out from the depths of truth, Wharever tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection, Wharever men and women struggle for freedom and right, Wharever the scientist toils to unbare the secrets of nature, Wharever the poet strings pearls of beauty in lyric lines, Wharever glorious deeds are done. Mordecai M. Kaplan - 14 -
  18. 18. BEFORE THE BEGINNING WHAT IS THE MOMENT OF OUR BIRTH? WE KNOW THE BIRTHDAY OF OUR BODY. YET WE CAN NEVER KNOW THE MOMENT OF BIRTH OF OUR CHARACTER. IT HAS NO DATE. THE BIRTH OF OUR CHARACTER HAS MANY BEGINNINGS AND IS WITHOUT END IN THE DAYS AND YEARS OF OUR LIFE. AT EVERY MOMENT WE FACE AN INFINITE NUMBER OF OPPORTUNITIES TO CREATE A GREATER MEANING IN OUR LIFE. ALWAYS WE FIND OURSELVES BEFORE ANOTHER BEGINNING. IN THIS WE DISCOVER THE MOST CREATIVE POWER OF PEOPLE: THE POWER AND DELIGHT OF THE SELF CREATION OF OUR CHARACTER. WE CREATE OUR CHARACTER WHEN WE ARE ALONE WITH OURSELVES AND IN THE RELATIONSHIPS WE ALSO EVOLVE WITH OTHERS AND MOST OF ALL, OUR VALUES WILL BE DETERMINED BY THE DIRECTION IN WHICH WE CHOOSE TO GROW WITH OTHERS AND WITHIN OURSELVES. TO ALL OF US THERE ARE GIVEN MANY OPPORTUNITIES TO FIND THE DIRECTION AND MEANING OF OUR LIVES. BUT WE KNOW THAT IT IS ONLY WHEN WORDS MOVE PEOPLE TO ACT. THAT THEY REVEAL THEIR STRENGTH. IN WHAT WE DO WE FIND THE CONTINUING BIRTH OF OUR CHARACTER. IN WHAT WE DO ... WE ARE ALWAYS BEFORE ANOTHER BEGINNING - 15 -

There is holiness when we are willing to be laughed at for what we believe in. There is holiness when we love- truly and honestlyandunselfishly.

To Fashion Holiness O God — Show us how to fashion holiness from waste, Discovering sparks in the broken shells of people beaten down by circumstance and mired in the boredom of hollowness. Teach us to take the neutral substance of reality and create the sublime, forming shapes of blessings with a sacred touch. Instruct us in sympathy, so we may learn to tear away at hopelessness and the groan and oy of despair by stories, jokes, and astonishing embraces. Remove shallowness from our lives and destroy senselessness, that we may discover Your plan and fulfill Your purposes. Give us insight and vision, and we will perform signs and wonders in the sight of all humanity as You Yourself once did in the Land of Egypt and at Sinai. Show us Life in all its glory, and we will glorify Your name, here and now, everywhere and forever. - 17 -
  21. 21. NO RELIGION IS AN ISLAND No religion is an island; There is no monopoly on holiness. We are companions of all who revere God We all rejoice when we walk in God’s way. No religion is an island; We share the kinship of humanity, The capacity for compassion. god’s spirit rests upon all, Jew and non-Jew Man or woman, in consonance with their deeds. The creation of the first humans, Adam and Eve, promotes peace. No one can claim: My ancestry is nobler than yours. Have we not all one Creator? Are we not all god’s children? Then let us help one another overcome hardness of hearts, Opening minds to the challenges of faith. Let mutual concern replace remnants of mutual contempt, As we share the precarious position of being human. There is no monopoly on holiness; There is no truth without humility. Let those who revere the Lord speak one to the other. Let all human beings reflect the image of God in their deeds. Abraham Joshua Heschel - 18 -

I’d stop playing serious, and seriously play. I’d run through more fields and gaze at more stars. I’d do more hugging and less tugging. I would be firm less often, and affirm much more. I’d build self-esteem first, and the house later. I’d teach less about the love of power, and more about the power of love. Diane Loomans - 19 -

  25. 25. PRAISE TO YOU, O LORD Let us imagine a world without color, without regal red or leafy green, A world that bores the eye with gray. Praise to You, O Lord, for all the colors in the rainbow, For eyes that are made for seeing, and for beauty That “is its own excuse for being.” Let us imagine a world without sound, a world where Deathly silence covers the world like a shroud. Praise to You, O Lord, for words that speak to our Minds, for songs that lift our spirits, and for all those Souls who know how to listen. Let us imagine a world without order, where no one can Predict the length of the day or the flow of the tide. Imagine a universe where planets leave their orbits and Sour like meteors through the heavens and where the law Of gravity is repealed at random. Praise to You, O Lord, for the marvelous order of Nature, from stars in the sky to particles in the atom. Let us imagine a world without love, a world in which The human spirit incapable of caring is locked in the prison Of the self. Praise to You, O Lord, for the capacity to feel happiness In another’s happiness and pain in another’s pain. As the universe whispers of a oneness behind all that is, so The love in our hearts calls on people everywhere to unite In pursuit of those ideals that make us human. As we sing of One God, we rejoice in the wonder of the universe and We pray for that day when all humanity will be one. HEAR O ISRAEL, THE LORD OUR GOD, THE LORD IS ONE. Praise be His name; His glorious kingdom is for ever and ever. Henry Cohen - 22 -

  33. 33. THERE ARE TWO SEAS There are two seas in the Land of Israel. One is fresh, and fish are in it. Splashes of green adorn its banks. Trees spread their branches over it, and stretch out their thirsty roots to sip of its healing waters. Along its shore children play. The River Jordan makes this sea with sparkling water from the hills. So it laughs in the sunshine. And people build their homes near to it, and birds their nests; and every form of life is happier because it is here. The River Jordan flows on south into another sea. Here there is no splash of fish, no fluttering leaf, no song of birds, no children’s laughter. The air hangs heavy above its waters and neither people nor animals will drink here. What accounts for the mighty difference between these seas? Not the River Jordan. It empties the same good water into both. Not the soil in which they lie; not the country ‘round about. This is the difference: The Sea of Galilee receives but does not keep the Jordan’s water. For every drop that flows into it another drop flows out. The giving and receiving go on in equal measure. The other sea is shrewder, hoarding its income jealously. It will not be tempted into any generous impulse. Every drop it gets, it keeps. The Sea of Galilee gives and lives. This other sea cannot sustain life. It is named the Dead Sea. There are two seas in the Land of Israel. There are two kinds of people in the world.

  38. 38. AMIDAH - AN ALTERNATIVE VERSION Help me, O God, to pray. Our ancestors worshipped You. Abraham and Sarah, Rebecca and Isaac, Jacob, Rachel, and Leah stood in awe before You.

We, their distant descendants, draw strength from their lives and from Your redeeming love. Be our help and our shield, as You were theirs. We praise You, God, Friend of Abraham. Your power sustains the universe. You breathe life into dead matter. With compassion You care for those who live. Your limitless love lets life triumph over death, heals the sick, upholds the exhausted, frees the enslaved, keeps faith even with the dead. Who is like You, God of splendor and power incomparable? You govern both life and death, Your Presence brings our souls to blossom. We praise You, God who wrests like from death. Sacred are You, sacred Your mystery. Seekers of holiness worship You all their lives. We praise You, God, ultimate sacred mystery. The mind is Your gift, wisdom a spark from You. May we grow in knowledge, insight, and understanding.

Let us not turn away from You empty. We praise You, God who cherishes prayer. Would that Your people at prayer gained delight in You. Would that we were aflame with the passionate piety of our ancestors’worship. Would that You found our worship acceptable and forever cherished Your people. If only our eyes could see Your glory perennially renewed in Jerusalem. We praise You, God whose Presence forever radiates from Zion. You are our God today as You were our ancestors’God throughout the ages; firm foundation of our lives, we are Yours in gratitude and love. Our lives are safe in Your hand, our souls entrusted to Your care. Our sense of wonder and our praise of Your miracles and kindnesses, greet You daily at dawn, dusk, and noon. O Gentle One, Your caring is endless; O Compassionate One, Your love is eternal. You are forever our hope. Let all life confront You with thankfulness, delight, and truth. Help us, O God; sustain us. We praise You God whose touchstone is goodness. To pray to You is joy. O God, from whom all peace flows, grant serenity to Your Jewish people, with love and mercy, life and goodness for all. Consider us kindly, bless us with tranquility at all times and all seasons. We praise You, God whose blessing is peace. May my tongue be innocent of malice and my lips free from lies. When confronted by enemies may my soul stay calm, truly humble to all. Open my heart with Your teachings, that I may be guided by You. May all who plan evil against me abandon their schemes. Hear my words and help me, God, because You are compassionate, because You are almighty, because You are holy, because You are loving, because You reveal Your Torah. May You find delight in the words of my mouth and in the emotions of my heart, God, my strength and my salvation. As You maintain harmony in the heavens, give peace to us and to the whole Jewish people. Amen. - 36 -
  40. 40. And I tell you And I tell you the good in man will win Over all his wickedness, over all the wrongs he has done. He will look at the pages of written history and be amazed, and then he will laugh and sing. And the good that is in man, children in their cradles, will have won. Here I stand, the Jew, marked by history, for who can count how long? Wrapped in compassion as in a Tallit, staring every storm in the face. Write songs of pain, sing prayers of torment, refresh yourself with suffering. Too much for one people, small and weak - it is enough to share our among the whole human race. But God has planted in me goodness, compassion, as a father loves his children. So I writhe with pain, weep and sing, sing and weep, For the blood knows the heart of the world is not made of stone; The wonderful light of God’s face is for all eternity stamped on it firm and deep; And the heart feels that there is a day and an hour, and a mountain called Zion; And then all the sufferings will gather there and will all become song. Ringing out into every corner of the earth, from end to end, And the nations will hear it, and like caravans in the desert will all to that mountain throng.

  42. 42. MEDITATION FOR THE NEW YEAR The solemn advent of the New Year calls me, to the quiet of Your sanctuary to commune with You in fellowship with my brothers and sisters. Here, under the inspiration of our sacred tradition, I would open my innermost self to those deeper thoughts and feelings which I have only, too often, shut from mind and heart in my day by day preoccupation with worldly pursuits and pleasures. May a real responsiveness of spirit be stirred within me and may I be enabled to consecrate my mood of the moment by influences and sentiments that will outlast the moment. Please God, help me to this end. Quicken my memory that I may draw lessons from the past before the old year is wholly gone. Give me Your light that I may see my varied experiences in their true meaning. As I look backward, may there be revealed to me how much richer, how much more abundant were my blessings than my privations, and how even my losses, my trials, my sorrows have within themselves the possibilities of higher good. And even more, I pray, teach me how small and insignificant were many of the things which at the time seemed all important, and how needlessly I permitted my soul to be troubled sorely and my heart to be fretted by cares which proved to be of no moment. Bring home to me the folly and futility of all this, and the need of ever holding before myself the standard of true values. Let no self deception hide from me the record of sin and shortcoming, of opportunities neglected, of time misspent, of abilities and powers perverted to lower purposes against my own better impulses and knowledge. And O that I may also be enabled by Your divine grace to turn into blessing the possibilities of the New Year which stretches out before me in solemn mystery. Let its message of time and eternity make me indeed mindful of the uncertainty of human life and the passing nature of all things earthly.... but let not the thought of my frailty awaken unwholesome fear of death or unworthy thoughts of life. Trustfully I confide myself and those dear to me to Your keeping for the year upon which we are now entering. We are strangers to it and know not the way which we should go. We need Your light and leading. Please guide us in paths of safety for Your name's sake. Bless us in our home and in all our wider relationships, sanctifying our affections, strengthening our loyalties and enlarging our power of helpfulness. As I implore You to inscribe me in the Book of Life, help me to understand that life is to be measured in terms of character and usefulness, and that more than mere length of days are breadth of sympathies, loftiness of ideals and greatness of service. Aid me to utilize rightly whatever added span of time You, in Your grace and goodness, shall accord to me ... Amen - 39 -
  43. 43. Ellis Island, 1904 Almighty God, reverently we stand before the Torah, Your most precious gift to us - the sacred Scriptures which our ancestors learned and taught, preserved for us, a heritage unto all generations. May we, their children's children, ponder its every word; may we find, as did they, new evidence of You in its precepts, enriching wisdom in its teachings. As we begin a New Year, may the Torah be our tree of life, our shield and guide; may we take its teachings to our hearts, and thus draw nearer to You in loyalty, in truth and in love. Amen Jonathan D. Levine - 40 -

  46. 46. Book of Genesis - Chapter 21 TORAH READING FOR THE FIRST DAY OF ROSH HASHANAH 1. And ADONAI visited Sarah as he had said, and ADONAI did unto Sarah as he had spoken. 2. For Sarah conceived, and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which ADONAI had spoken to him. 3. And Abraham called the name of his son that was born unto him, whom Sarah bore to him, Isaac. 4. And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac being eight days old, as ADONAI had commanded him. 5. And Abraham was a hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born unto him. 6. And Sarah said, ADONAI hath made me to laugh, so that all that hear will laugh with me. 7. And she said, Who would have said unto Abraham, that Sarah should nurse children for I have born him a son in his old age. 8. And the child grew, and was weaned: and Abraham made a great feast the same day that Isaac was weaned. 9. And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, which she had born unto Abraham, mocking. 10. Wherefore she said unto Abraham, Cast out this bondwoman and her son: for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, even with Isaac. 11. And the thing was very grievous in Abraham's sight because of his son. 12. And ADONAI said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad, and because of your bondwoman; in all that Sarah hath said to you, hearken unto her voice; for in Isaac shall thy seed be called. 13. And also of the son of the bondwoman will I make a nation, because he is thy seed. 14. And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and took bread, and a bottle of water, and gave it unto Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, and the child, and sent her away: and she departed, and wandered in the wilderness of Beersheba. 15. And the water was spent in the bottle, and she cast the child under one of the shrubs. 16. And she went, and sat her down over against him a good way off, as it were a bow shot: for she said, Let me not see the death of the child. And she sat over against him, and lift up her voice, and wept. 17. And ADONAI heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of ADONAI called Hagar out of heaven, and said unto her, What ails you, Hagar? fear not; for ADONAI has heard the voice of the lad where he is. 18. Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in thine hand; for I will make him a great nation. 19. And ADONAI opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink. 20. And ADONAI was with the lad; and he grew, and dwelt in the wilderness, and became an archer. 21. And he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran: and his mother took him a wife out of the land of Egypt. - 43 -

  48. 48. Book of Genesis - Chapter 22 SECOND DAY OF ROSH HASHANAH 1. And it came to pass after these things, that ADONAI did tempt Abraham, and said to him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am. 2. And he said, Take now your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and get you into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell you of. 3. And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which ADONAI had told him. 4. Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off. 5. And Abraham said unto his young men, Stay here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you. 6. And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together. 7. And Isaac spoke to Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering? 8. And Abraham said, My son, ADONAI will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together. 9. And they came to the place which ADONAI had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood. 10. And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son. 11. And the angel of ADONAI called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I. 12. And he said, Lay not your hand upon the lad, neither do any thing unto him: for now I know that you fear ADONAI, seeing you has not withheld your son, your only son from me. 13. And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son. 14. And Abraham called the name of that place ADONAI-YIREH: as it is said to this day, In the mount of ADONAI it shall be seen. 15. And the angel of ADONAI called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time, 16. And said, By myself have I sworn, said ADONAI, for because you have done this thing, and has not withheld your son, your only son: 17. That in blessing I will bless you, and in multiplying I will multiply your seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the seashore; and your seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; 18. And in your seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because you have obeyed my voice. 19. So Abraham returned to his young men, and they rose up and went together to Beersheba; and Abraham dwelt at Beersheba. 20. And it came to pass after these things, that it was told Abraham, saying, Behold, Milcah, she has also born children unto your brother Nahor; 21. Huz his firstborn, and Buz his brother, and Kemuel the father of Aram, 22. And Chesed, and Hazo, and Pildash, and Jidlaph, and Bethuel. 23. And Bethuel begat Rebekah: these eight Milcah did bear to Nahor, Abraham's brother. 24. And his concubine, whose name was Reumah, she bare also Tebah, and Gaham, and Thahash, and Maachah. - 45 -

BOTH DAYS OF ROSH HASHANAH 1. And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a holy convocation; you shall do no servile work: it is a day of blowing the trumpets to you. 2. And you shall offer a burnt offering for a sweet savour unto ADONAI; one young bullock, one ram, and seven lambs of the first year without blemish: 3. And their meat offering shall be of flour mingled with oil, three tenth deals for a bullock, and two tenth deals for a ram, 4. And one tenth deal for one lamb, throughout the seven lambs: 5. And one kid of the goats for a sin offering, to make an atonement for you: 6. Beside the burnt offering of the month, and his meat offering, and the daily burnt offering, and his meat offering, and their drink offerings, according unto their manner, for a sweet savour, a sacrifice made by fire unto ADONAI. - 47 -
