  11. 11. ‫לך ענו שירה‬ PSALM 95 Within its bounds Shabbat is one of the surest means of finding peace in the war-torn realms of the soul. It is one of the basic institutions of humanity – an idea with infinite potentiality, infinite power, infinite hope. Through the Sabbath, Judaism has succeeded in turning its greatest teachings into a day. Out of a remote world of profound thought, grand dreams, and fond hopes – all of which seem so distant, so intangible and so unrealizable – the Sabbath has forged a living reality which can be seen and tasted and felt at least once a week. Erich Fromm 27 C ome, let us sing joyously to Adonai, raise a shout for our rock and deliverer; let us come into God’s presence with praise; let us raise a shout for God in song! For Adonai is a great God, the great Sovereign of all divine beings. In God’s hand are the depths of the earth; the peaks of the mountains are God’s. God’s is the sea, God made it; and the land, which God’s hands fashioned. Come, let us bow down and kneel, bend the knee before Adonai our maker. For this is our God, and we are the people God tends, the flock in God’s care. O, if you would but heed God’s charge this day. Do not be stubborn as at Meribah, as on the day of Massah, in the wilderness, when your ancestors put Me to the test, tried Me, though they had seen My deeds. Forty years, I was provoked by that generation. I thought, “They are senseless people; they would not know My ways.” Concerning them I swore in anger, “They shall never come to My resting place!”

The psalms include poems of thanksgiving, praise, war songs, songs connected with festivals and historical events, and milestones in individuals’ lives.

  13. 13. ‫לך ענו שירה‬ PSALM 96 Prayer is a coupling with the Glory of God. Therefore man should move himself up and down at the beginning of prayer, but then he can stand unmoved and cleave to God in a great cleaving. And because he moves, he can attain to a great awakening so that he must reflect: Why do I move up and down? Certainly, because the Glory of God stands over against me. And over this he enters into a great rapture. Martin Buber Hasidism and Modern Man S ing to Adonai a new song, sing to Adonai, all the earth. Sing to Adonai, bless God’s name, proclaim God’s victory day after day. Tell of God’s glory among the nations, God’s wondrous deeds, among all peoples. For Adonai is great and much acclaimed, God is held in awe by all divine beings. All the gods of the peoples are mere idols, but Adonai made the heavens. Glory and majesty are before God; strength and splendor are in God’s Temple. Ascribe to Adonai, O families of the peoples, ascribe to Adonai glory and strength. Ascribe to Adonai the glory of God’s name, bring tribute and enter God’s courts. Bow down to Adonai majestic in holiness; tremble in God’s presence, all the earth! Declare among the nations, “Adonai is sovereign!” the world stands firm; it cannot be shaken; God judges the peoples with equity. Let the heavens rejoice and the earth exult; let the sea and all within it thunder. The fields and everything in them exult; then shall all the trees of the forest shout for joy at the presence of Adonai, for God is coming, for God is coming to rule the earth; God will rule the world justly and its peoples in faithfulness. 29
  14. 14. Mizmor Shiru (Psalm 98) Adonai will sustain the world with kindness... Mizmor. Shiru l’Adonai shir chadash, ki nifla’ot asa. Hodia Adonai yishuato, l’einei hagoyim gila tzid’kato. Zachar chasdo veemunato l’veit Yisrael. Ra’u chol afsei . aretz et yishu’at Eloheinu. Hariu l’Adonai . kol ha’aretz, pitz’chu ve’ran’nu vezameru. Bachatzotzrot v’kol shofar, Hariu lifnei . hamelech Adonai. Yiram hayam umlo’o, teivel v’yosh’vei vah. N’harot yimcha’u . chaf, Yachad harim yeraneinu. Lifnei Adonai ki va lish’pot ha’aretz, Yish’pot . teivel b’tzedek, v’amim b’meisharim. Sing a new song to our God, who has done wonders. You have made known Your power and revealed Your justice for all to see. You have remembered Your love and faithfulness to the house of Israel. All the ends of the Earth have seen the power of God. Let the earth ring out in song to God; break forth, sing aloud, shout praise! Sound trumpet and horn before the Sovereign God. Let the sea roar and all that fills it, the world and all who dwell there. Let the rivers clap hands! Let all the mountains sing for joy before the Eternal One. For God comes to rule the earth: To rule the world with justice and the peoples with righteousness. Adonai Malach (Psalm 99) Adonai malach yirg’zu amim, yoshev . k’ruvim, tanut ha’aretz. Adonai b’tzion . gadol, v’ram hu al kol ha’amim. Yodu shimcha: gadol v’nora kadosh Hu. V’oz . melech, mish’pat aheiv Atah konan’ta meisharim, Mish’pat utz’dakah b’Yaakov . atah asita. Romemu Adonai Eloheinu, v’hish’tachavu l’har kad’sho, ki kadosh . Adonai Eloheinu. The Eternal One reigns: let the peoples quake with awe; God sits enthroned, and the earth trembles. You are exalted in Zion, Eternal One, high above the peoples. Let them praise your name, great, awesome, and holy. Your power, O Sovereign God, is in Your love of justice. You make righteousness stand firm; justice and right take root in Jacob. We will exalt You, our Eternal God, and worship at your holy mountain for our Eternal God is holy. 9

With wisdom You open heaven’s gates, and with understanding You make the ages pass and the seasons alternate; Your will controls the stars as they travel through the skies. You are Creator of day and night, rolling light away from darkness and darkness from light; You cause day to pass and bring on the night; separating day from night; You command the hosts of heaven! May the living and eternal God rule us always, to the end of time! We praise You, O Eternal One, Whose word makes evening fall.

For they are our life and length of our days; we will meditate on them day and night. Do not remove Your love from us ever! Blessed are You God, Lover of the people Israel. 21

Torah is more than a book: Torah is what God revealed to us, and what we discovered about God. It is the ideas and the ideals, the rules and the duties, that make up our religious heritage. It is the enlightment of Abraham, the legislation of Mosheh, the Prophets’ passion for social justice, the wisdom of Rabbis, the traditional practices of great and small acts of kindness and compassion. Torah is also the questions we ask, and the answers we find, when we seek to understand God, the world, and ourselves. Torah is a fruitful way of life, a path to self-fulfillment; the will and the vision for a better world. “And as the Ark was carried forward, Moses would say: Arise, Adonai! that your enemies be scattered; and your foes be put to flight.” (Numbers 10:35) “Torah shall emanate from Zion, the word of Adonai from Jerusalem.” (Isaiah 2:3) Praised is God who, in holiness, bestowed Torah to the people Israel. :dWn xn`«I© ox`d © q§pA idi© ¤ ¤ e ¨ ¨ « ¦ ¦ §e :Li«pRn Li«`§pUn Eq«pie§ ,Li«a § ` Ev«t¨e§ ,¨i§ dnEw ¤ ¨ ¦ ¤ © § ª¨ ¤ ªi i ¨ :m¦ lyExin ii§ x© cE , dxFz `vY oFISn iM i«¨ ¨ ¦ ¨ a § ¨ ¥¥ ¦ ¦ ¦ :FzXcwA l`x¨Ui¦ FO© l dxFY oz¨ W KExA ¨ ª§ ¦ ¥ § r§ ¨ © P¤ ¨ Vayehi binso’a ha-aron vayomer Mosheh: kuma Adonai veyafutzu oyevekha veyanusu mesan-ekha mipanekha.
