Rosh Hashanah Prayers In Mp3 – Brush Up On A Tune

In liturgy Rosh Hashanah is described as “the day of judgment” (Yom ha-Din) and “the day of remembrance” (Yom ha-Zikkaron).  Some midrashim depict G-d as sitting upon a throne, while books containing the deeds of all humanity are opened for review, and each person passing in front of Him for evaluation of his or her deeds.

The Talmud provides the guidelines for the day’s prayers and the rationale for the three central ideas behind the day:

“The Holy One said, ‘on Rosh Hashanah recite before Me [verses of] Sovereignty, Rememberance, and Shofar blasts (malchuyot, zichronot, shofrot):  Sovereignty so that you should make Me your King; Remembrance so that your remembrance should rise up before Me.  And through what? Through the Shofar.'” (Rosh Hashanah 16a, 34b)

This is reflected in the prayers composed by the sages for Rosh Hashanah found in all machzorim where the theme of the prayers is the strongest theme is the “coronation” of  G-d as King of the universe in preparation for the acceptance of judgments that will follow on that day, symbolized as “written” into a Divine book of judgments, that then hang in the balance for ten days waiting for all to repent, then they will be “sealed” on Yom Kippur. The assumption is that everyone was sealed for life and therefore the next festival is Sukkot that is referred to as “the time of our joy” (z’man simchateinu).

The services for the  Days of Awe — Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur — take on a solemn tone as befits these days. Traditional solemn tunes are used in the prayers.

The musaf service on Rosh Hashanah has nine blessings; the three middle blessings include biblical verses attesting to sovereignty, remembrance and the shofar, which is sounded 100 times during the service.
