V’ahavta 01:06
You shall love Adonai your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all that is yours. These words that I command you this day shall be taken to heart. Teach them again and again to your children, and speak of them when you sit in your home, when you walk on your way, when you lie down and when you rise up. Bind them as a sign upon your hand and as a symbol before your eyes. Inscribe them on the doorposts of your home and on your gates. V’ahavta eit Adonai elohekha b’khol l’vav’kha u-v’khol nafsh’kha u-v’khol m’odekha. V’hayu ha-d’varim ha-eileh asher anokhi m’tzav’kha ha-yom al l’vavekha. V’shinantam l’vanekha v’dibarta bam b’shivt’kha b’veitekha u-v’lekht’kha va-derekh uv’shokhb’kha u-v’kumekha. U-k’shartam l’ot al yadekha v’hayu l’totafot bein einekha. U-kh’tavtam al m’zuzot beitekha u-vish’arekha.

Who is like You, Adonai, among the heavenly powers? Who is like You, majestic in holiness, awesome in praise, doing wonders? Your children beheld Your majesty, as You split the sea before Moses: This is my God’ they exclaimed and said: Adonai will reign for all eternity!’ Mi khamokha ba-eilim Adonai, mi kamokha ne’edar ba-kodesh, norah t’hilot oseh feleh. Malkhut’kha ra-u va’nekha, bokei’a yam lifnei Moshe. Zeh Eli anu v’amru: Adonai yimlokh l’olam va-ed.

Vayhi Binsoa 01:37
As the ark was carried forward, Moses would say: Adonai, rise up and scatter your enemies, so that all who hate you will run away from Your presence. Torah will go forth from Zion, and the word of Adonai from Jerusalem. Praised is the one who gave Torah to the people Israel in holiness Va-y’hi binsoa haaron va-yomeir moshe: kumah Adonai v’yafutzu oy’vekha, v’yanusu m’san·ekha mi-panekha. Ki mi-tziyon teitzei torah, u-dvar Adonai mirushalayim. Barukh she-natan torah l’amo yisrael bi-k’dushato.
19.
Adonai, Adonai, God merciful and compassionate, patient, full of love and faith, maintaining love for thousands of generations, forgiving bad deeds, wrongdoing, and missing the mark, and granting pardon. Adonai, Adonai, El rahַum v’hַanun erekh apayim v’rav hַesed ve-emet. Notzeir hַesed laalafim nosei avon va-fesha v’hַata-ah v’nakeih.
20.
Sing praises to Adonai our God, and bow towards God’s holy mountain, for Adonai our God is holy. Romemu Adonai Eloheinu v’hishtahavu l’har kodsho, ki kadosh Adonai Eloheinu.
21.
El na r’fa na la. Mi shebeirakh avoteinu/imoteinu Grant us r’fuah sh’leimah May the source of strength renew our body, renew our spirit, and let us say: Amen.
22.
Blessed are You Adonai, our God, ruler of time and space, who has made us holy through mitzvot and instructed us to hear the sound of the shofar. Barukh atah Adonai eloheinu melekh haolam, asher kid’shanu b’mitzvotav, v’tzivanu lishmoa kol shofar.
23.

Shofar blast 00:28
25.
It is a Tree of Life for those who take hold of it, and all who hold on to it are blessed. Its ways are pleasant and all its paths are peace. Turn us toward You, Adonai, and we will return to You; make our days seem fresh, as they once were. Eitz hַayim hi la-mahַazikim ba, v’tom’kheha m’ushar. D’rakheha darkhei no·am, v’khol n’tivoteha shalom. Hashiveinu Adonai eilekha v’nashuva, hַadesh yameinu k’kedem.
26.
Blessed are You who hears prayer. Barukh atah shomea t’filah.

28.
U-t’shuvah 00:36
But repentance, prayer, and acts of justice give us the power to control how we respond to what happens. U-t’shuvah u-t’filah u-tz’dakah ma·avirin et ro·a ha-g’zeirah.
29.
It is for us to praise the Ruler of all, to acclaim the Creator, who has not made us merely a nation, nor formed us as all earthly families, nor given us an ordinary destiny. And so we bow, acknowledging the supreme sovereign, the Holy One, who is praised. Aleinu l’shabei·ah la-adon ha-kol, latet g’dulah l’yotzer b’reishit, she-lo asanu k’goyei ha-aratzot v’lo samanu k’mishp’hot ha-adamah, She-lo sam helkeinu kahem, v’goraleinu k’khol ha-monam. Va-anahnu kor’im u-mishtahavim u-modim lifnei melekh malkhei ha-m’lakhim ha-kadosh barukh hu.
30.
Hayom harat olam… Today is the world's birthday!
31.
May the words of our lips be pleasing to You, God, who listens, notices, considers, and pays attention to the sound of our shofar blast. Lovingly accept —our prayers proclaiming that You are our ruler. ―our verses proclaiming that You remember us. ―our blowing of the shofar. Areshet s’fateinu ye·erav l’fanekha, el ram v’nisa, meivin u-ma·azin, mabit u-makshiv l’kol t’kiateinu. U-t’kabel b’rahַamim u-vratzon seder —malkhuyoteinu —zikhronoteinu —shof’roteinu.

Hayom tikht’veinu l’hayim tovim, Amen. Hayom tishma shavateinu, Amen. Hayom titm’kheinu bimin tzidkekha, Amen.
33.
Hashiveinu 01:22
All the things we have done wrong that we have said we are sorry for - please make them as if they have been thrown into deep water and disappeared. V’tashlikh bimtzulot yam kol hַatotam. Hashiveinu Adonai eilekha v’nashuvah hַadesh yameinu k’kedem.
34.
Kol Nidre 01:02
From this Yom Kippur to the next - may it find us well - any thoughtless promises that we make to God, let them be as if we never said them. Kol Nidrei... mi-yom kippurim zeh, ad yom kippurim ha-ba aleinu l’tovah.
35.
Hear our voice, Adonai our God, be kind and have compassion for us. Accept our prayer with love. Sh'ma koleinu Adonai eloheinu hַus v’rahַeim aleinu, v’kabeil b’rahַamim u-v’ratzon et t’filateinu.

about

This High Holy Day book is designed especially for young children and their grownups to use at services, at the family table, and in prayerful moments at home, as well as to visit the sounds of the synagogue any day of the year. We believe in the importance of connecting with families through text, and know that even our youngest members will find pleasure and meaning in sharing a book containing the rich and diverse liturgy of our people. Prayer is a multi-sensory experience. The colorful and playful pages of this book not only show the words of the prayers and what they mean, but also the structure of the service and its choreography. In addition, all of the accompanying music is available for download and streaming. The musical selections include contemporary compositions commissioned recently by the PAS Music Center, as well as familiar melodies closely identified with the High Holidays. Singing will help children learn the prayers, find meaning in the text, and become comfortable with the full range of Jewish music.
