NOTE: Not EVERYTHING done in the clip is obligatory. I made this clear in the annotations. If someone is confused or mislead because he did not read, that is not my fault. READ. In our days there are not many Jews who still kneel and bow during regular daily prayer. A noticable number of Orthodox Ashkenazi Jews do bow to the ground during Yom haKipurim and Rosh haShana. Most Jews are not even aware that such is the historical practice of the Jewish people to kneel and prostrate during regular daily prayer. Therefore, be prepared that if you kneel or prostrate in most synagogues, you are sure to get reactions of surprise. They may or may not be encouraging reactions. Nonetheless, so long as you are still able to concentrate properly while praying and are willing to endure the possible consequences of bowing and prostrating in public, I only encourage you to do so. It is a shame to fear men more than the Most High. How can bowing or prostrating be a sign of arrogance, especially when you know people may look upon you negatively for doing so? Rather, it is an expression of humility and submission to the Almighty. The following text of formal Jewish prayer and instruction on how it is done is according to Talmudic law as codified in the Mishneh Torah of Rambam (Maimonides). References to halakha are given in abbreviated form. For example, HT5:4 means "Hilkhoth Tefilah" chapter 5, the fourth halakha. Hilkhoth Tefilah is found in Sefer Ahavah in the Mishneh Torah: "The mention of bending-down {k'reya} in every place is on the knees.." (HT5:13) There are 5 places where one "bends-down" during this prayer (HT5:10). Each time one "bends-down," he should arch his back bending over until his backbone pokes out slightly (HT5:12). One need not bow in this manner if he is unable because it causes him pain (HT5:12). There are some additional reasons why a person may not need to fully bow, usually either because of stress of the situation or stress of the body (HT5:1). I will elaborate upon these later. The 5 places where one "bends-down" are highlighted in the text of prayer found in the link below. In the text of prayer found on that link, upon reading a word highlighted in bold letters, "bend-down" and make your body like an arch (qeshet). Afterwards, straighten back up into a standing position upon reading a word that is underlined. The content of this prayer were established by the Court established under Moses, at the time at which it was headed by Ezra, Nehemiah, Daniel, Zechariah, etc... with the exception of a few small portions that were added by a later generation of that same Great Court. This prayer is called the Amidah (standing) because the majority of it is prayed in standing position (HT5:2); It's also called the Shemoneh Esreh (eight-teen) because, though now it consists of 19 blessings, it originally consisted of 18 blessings to the Almighty When beginning any of the 3 daily prayers, start from a standing position facing toward the Temple in Israel, with feet side by side, eyes lowered, and ones right hand clasped over his left hand over his heart, with his heart turned to "Above" in fear, awe, and dread, as a servant before his master, (HT5:4).

Jewish prayer in a synagogue
 
01:14
http://israelvideosfeed.com Morning prayer was made with tallit and tefillin. A tallit (Hebrew: טַלִּית‎‎) (talet in Sephardic Hebrew and Ladino) (tallis, in Ashkenazic Hebrew and Yiddish) pl. tallitot (talleisim,] tallism, in Ashkenazic Hebrew and Yiddish) is a Jewish prayer shawl. The tallit is worn over the outer clothes during the morning prayers (Shacharit) on weekdays, Shabbat and holidays. The tallit has special twined and knotted fringes known as tzitzit attached to its four corners. Most traditional tallitot are made of wool. Tallitot are often given as gifts to children on their Bar Mitzvahs. In orthodox circles, a Tallit is customarily presented to a groom before marriage as part of the dowry. Tefillin (Askhenazic: /ˈtfɪlɨn/; Israeli Hebrew: [tfiˈlin], תפילין) also called phylacteries (/fɪˈlæktəriːz/ from Ancient Greek phylacterion, form of phylássein, φυλάσσειν meaning "to guard, protect") are a set of small black leather boxes containing scrolls of parchment inscribed with verses from the Torah, which are worn by observant Jews during weekday morning prayers. Although "tefillin" is technically the plural form (the singular being "tefillah"), it is loosely used as a singular as well.[1] The hand-tefillin, or shel yad, is placed on the upper arm, and the strap wrapped around the arm, hand and fingers; while the head-tefillin, or shel rosh, is placed above the forehead. The Torah commands that they should be worn to serve as a "sign" and "remembrance" that God brought the children of Israel out of Egypt.
What is the Amidah? The Jewish Standing Prayer
 
02:55
The Amidah is the core of Jewish worship service and refers to a series of blessings recited while standing. Learn more this prayer with Rabbi David Wolkenfeld of Anshe Sholom B'nai Israel Congregation in Chicago. The Amidah includes three distinct sections. The first section includes prayers that praise. The middle section includes 13 requests. These requests focus on practical needs like health, and the ability to make wise choices but also more lofty yearnings for redemption and justice. These requests can change depending on what type of year it is. The last section includes prayers of gratitude. You can also include your own personal prayers. This video was created at the Chicago Rabbinic Writers Lab, a program where 10 rabbis wrote Introduction to Tefillah videos in chevruta as a group.This series breaks down and explains major Jewish prayers so you can feel more knowledgeable and comfortable while attending a Jewish service.

Orthodox Jewish & Christian Prayer Similiar To Muslim Prayer
 
04:57
Orthodox Jews & Christians Prays Similiar To Muslim Namaz . وَأَقِيمُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَآتُوا الزَّكَاةَ Oh Muhammed “ establish Salah and give Zakah" . . Following verses from the Bible. "And he (Jesus) went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed..." (Matthew 26:39) . "And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship..." (Joshua 5:14) . "And Moses and Aaron went from the presence of the assembly unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and they fell upon their faces…" (Numbers 20:6) . "And Abraham fell on his face..." (Genesis 17:3) . "…and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God." (Revelation 7:11) . "…then they bowed their heads and worshiped the Lord with their faces to the ground." (Nehemiah 8:6) . "…Then David and the elders of Israel, who were clothed in sackcloth, fell upon their faces." (1 Chronicles 21:16) In many others places in the Bible where we find the method of prayer mentioned, it calls to mind the way Muslims pray. In the Bible book entitled Daniel we are able to read a description of Daniel praying to God in a time of great crisis. . "Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did a foretime." (Daniel 6:10) It is interesting to note that Prophet Daniel prayed towards Jerusalem. In the early days of Prophet Mohammad’s mission the faithful also prayed towards Jerusalem. However the Muslim direction of prayer changed. About sixteen months after Prophet Muhammad and his followers migrated from Mecca to the city of Medina the direction was changed to facing the sacred House of God in Mecca. Descriptions of the positions Muslims adopt in the five ritual prayers per day can be found throughout the Bible. Many are mentioned in the book of Psalms. . "Stand in awe, and sin not."(Psalms 4:4) . "O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker." (Psalms 95:6) . "…all that go down to the dust shall bow before him…" (Psalms 22:29) And in the book of Kings we find Prophet Elijah casting himself upon the earth in the position of kneeling before touching the forehead to the ground. "…and he cast himself down upon the earth, and put his face between his knees." (1 Kings 18:42) This is a position very familiar to Muslims. So too is the position Jesus adopts during prayer in a moment of fear and uncertainty. "And he (Jesus) was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed." (Luke 22:41) Allah Say's To Prophet Muhammad Pbuh [Quran 16:123] "Then we inspired you (O Muhammad) to follow the religion of Abraham, monotheism; never was he an idol-worshiper." [Quran 19:58] "These are some of the prophets whom God blessed. They were chosen from among the descendants of Adam, and the descendants of those whom we carried with Noah, and the descendants of Abraham and Israel, and from among those whom we guided and selected. When the revelations of the Most Gracious are recited to them, they fall prostrate, weeping. "[Quran 19:59] "After them, He substituted generations who lost the Contact Prayers (Salat), and pursued their lusts. They will suffer the consequences.

In order to fulfill this "calling" in the best way possible, I studied in depth, visited, and personally experienced each and every important site of the ancient Christians.

What I learned there was how to attract the publics attention, generate and, increase interest, and assimilate information. All this I use as tools to describe, explain and deepen the interest in the sites that we visit. From my experience, I have learned that in this way, the Holy Land becomes more than just history, and that the large stones that we see scattered about in dissaray, join together one by one until they become - a Byzantine Church. This also happens when I lead a group of Pilgrims in the Steps of Jesus. We climb to the peak of Mount Precipice, "glide" over the land to the Sea of Galilee, land on the water and "see" the miracle which enfolds before us. This is a many faceted experience. Not only history which you will remember and cherish, but an experience which I hope will be inplanted in your hearts and minds, and will accompany you all the days of your life.

Jews in prayer for rain as Israel suffers years of drought
 
02:51
(28 Dec 2017) Hundreds of Jews prayed for rain Thursday amid several years of drought in Israel. Israel's senior rabbis led the prayers at Jerusalem's Western Wall, the holiest place where Jews can pray. "The chief rabbinate of Israel has declared a day of prayer to see and to ask God almighty to bring us rain which is so necessary," said David Rokach who attended the prayers. "We pray to God so he will help us and listen to our prayer." "We believe this will help, this is not instead of all what we are doing," said Uri Ariel, the agriculture minister who organised the prayer "we are going to build more desalination plants, this is the fifth year of drought, it's a big challenge." According to Israel's Meteorological Service, there is a chance of drizzle late Thursday.

It's the only biblical instrument that is still in use exactly as it was back then in old times. The shofar is an ancient Jewish liturgical instrument. A natural trumpet, made from a ram's horn. This blast of biblical horn is believed by the Jewish faith to open up the gates of heaven. __________________________________________________________ The Shofar is the Jewish calling voice. It was used in ancient Israel to announce the New Moon (Rosh Chodesh) and call people together. we meet it in the bible during times of joy and war and in the temple. The Shofar is related to forgiveness and mercy month and it is blown in every Israeli community during Rosh Hashanah (New Year). The blasts of the shofar are wake-up calls. Rosh Hashanah is the time to shake out of our spiritual slumber, reconnect to our source, and recommit to our divine mission in this world. It is considered a mitzvah (commandment) to hear the shofar blown. Using the Shofar as a musical instrument is rare.This blast of biblical horn is believed by the Jewish faith to open up the gates of heaven. _____________________________________________________ From your place - a song by "The Singing Rabbi", Shlomo Carlebach.

From my experience, I have learned that in this way, the Holy Land becomes more than just history, and that the large stones that we see scattered about in dissaray, join together one by one until they become - a Byzantine Church. This also happens when I lead a group of Pilgrims in the Steps of Jesus. We climb to the peak of Mount Precipice, "glide" over the land to the Sea of Galilee, land on the water and "see" the miracle which enfolds before us. This is a many faceted experience. Not only history which you will remember and cherish, but an experience which I hope will be inplanted in your hearts and minds, and will accompany you all the days of your life.
What is the Ashrei? Understanding Jewish Prayer
 
02:54
The Ashrei is one of the most fundamental prayers in the Jewish prayer service. Learn what it is, how it is constructed and what it means in this short explainer video. Great for students, educators and those new to regular Jewish prayer. The Ashrei prayer is recited at least 3 times a day at synagogues and Jewish communities throughout the world. It consists primarily of Psalms 145, with verses from Psalm 84 and 114 added at the beginning and Psalm 115 added at the end. The first two verses mention the word "ashei" multiple times which means happy in Hebrew, hence the name of the prayer. Psalm 145 includes a list of 21 blessings, each beginning with a letter of the Hebrew alphabet. This prayer conveys many ways to bless G-d and for many, it can become a powerful meditation.

Thousands attend Jewish blessing in Jerusalem

Thousands of people attended a traditional Jewish blessing at the Western Wall in Jerusalem to celebrate the holiday of Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles). The Priestly Blessing, called Birkat Cohanim in Hebrew, draws crowds from across Israel and around the world and is held three times a year during the Jewish holidays of Sukkot , Passover and Shavuot. Kohanim, or priests, lead the communal prayers by chanting three consecutive verses of the Torah one word at a time, in a special singsong reputed… Let the pictures do the talking: subscribe to No Comment http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=NoCommentTV No Comment is brought to you by euronews, the most watched news channel in Europe.

Jewish Prayers:  The Shema
 
05:26
Back at home after our pilgrimage to Israel, we were listening to our Pastor’s sermon on Sunday when he referenced a verse in Deuteronomy. It immediately reminded me of The Shema, the Jewish declaration of faith in one God: “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one.” – Deuteronomy 6:4 in the Bible. From there, I remembered all we had seen at the Western Wall and on Mount Zion that related to the Jewish prayers. Join us as we see the young people at the Western Wall who have returned from the March of the Living in Poland and the Jewish men wearing the tefillin, tied as “symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads” and the commandments written and put in the mezuzah that is “on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.” And then, the tallit that is worn with “tassels on the corners of your garments, with a blue cord on each tassel”…”to look at and so you will remember all the commands of the Lord, that you may obey them…” This rich tradition and faith is found in the Bible in Deuteronomy 6:5-9 (The Shema or Sh’ma), in Deuteronomy 11: 13-21 (V’haya or Vehayah), and in Numbers 15: 37-41 (Vayomer or Vaiyomer).

According to Mishneh Torah, Laws of Prayer 2:2-3, this shorter version of the regular weekday prayer (the Shemoneh Esreh) should be said in place of the above full version if one feels distracted or pressured, or if one has trouble reciting the full version fluently. Additionally, it should not be said during the halakhic 'winter' months. The first and last 3 blessings of the shorter version posted here are the same as the first and last 3 blessings of the full version above.

Judaism encourages blessings for food, drink, study, washing your hands, using the bathroom - it goes on and on. But so many parents connect very deeply with the custom of blessing their children on Friday nights. It's ancient and beautiful and easy to learn how to do.

First Steps in Messianic Jewish Prayer
 
03:30
This book is a brief introduction to prayer in Messianic Judaism. Jewish prayer is unique, both in its fundamental ideas and concepts and in the way it is practically observed. In this book, we examine the concepts of prayer from a Messianic Jewish perspective. Messianic Judaism is a type of Judaism. That means that the historical prayers of the synagogue across the centuries are our prayers. It was our sages, rabbis, poets, and prophets who penned these prayers and entrusted them to us, the Jewish community. Accordingly, this book looks at the aspects of prayer that we hold in common with all of Judaism. We delve into the discussions of the scholars recorded in foundational, ancient Jewish works such as the Talmud and Midrash to see how they conceptualized prayer.

What is the Hallel? Jewish Prayer of Praise
 
03:10
Hallel is a Jewish prayer that is recited in community as an act of praise and gratitude. Learn more about this powerful prayer in this video featuring Rabbi Josh Feigelson of the University of Chicago Divinity School. Special thank you to Joey Weisenberg & The Hadar Ensemble for use of "Bina's Nigun (Live)" from the album, "Joey's Nigunim, Vol. III: Live in the Choir Loft." Hallel literally translates as "praise" and it is a way of expressing profound collective gratitude and praise to G-d. The Jewish prayer is comprised of five different psalms that all evoke imagines of transition, evolution and growth. First psalm is all about G-d's power as creator. The second psalm evokes the historical experience of the Exodus where the Israelites experienced freedom for the first time from their Egyptian oppressors. The Exodus is the first instance of the Hallel. In the third psalm, we see a shift as the words center on the debt we owe G-d for saving us. The fourth psalm expresses joy appreciation and humility we feel towards G-d and the whole around us. The last psalm weaves together gratitude, memory and request.

Pesukei D'Zimra: The Jewish Warm Up Prayer
 
02:46
How do Jews get ready to pray? Every morning Jews warm up with a series of blessings known as the Pesukei D'Zimra. Learn more about this special warm up prayer with Rabbi David Russo of Anshe Emet Synagogue in Chicago. Pesukei D'Zimra, or in Verses of Song, has been recited for at least 2,000 years. Ancient rabbis even spent one hour warming up before the prayer service begins. This warm up prayer reminds us of the importance of prayer and that we should first become present before we pour ourselves over in the presence of G-d. Without the warm up, we might not take this whole prayer things as seriously. Pesukei D'Zimra is part of a Jewish prayer service.

INDIA: JEWISH COMMUNITY LIVING IN BOMBAY DWINDLING FAST
 
02:59
Eng/Hindi/Nat A small Jewish community living in the Indian city of Bombay is learning to come to terms with its shrinking population. The community's numbers are dwindling fast, as most of the young Jews have migrated to Israel. But for the older generation Jews, uprooting a link that dates back 2000 years is not easy. They continue to live in the shadow of the past, in the hope their history in India will not fade away entirely. A traditional way to herald the Jewish new year. For the Jewish community living in the western Indian city of Bombay, it's also a time to look back on fond memories of years gone by. Their memories are of times when the synagogue was filled with Jews, both young and old. The history of this Jewish settlement in India dates back more than 2000 years. The community includes Baghdad Jews living in Calcutta, White Jews who have settled in Cochin, as well as this congregation in Bombay. Today, the once 25-thousand strong community which settled in various parts of India has dwindled to about one-fifth of its size. About two-thousand of them now live in Bombay, while most of the young Jews have migrated to Israel. Those who are still here say it's a spiritual call that beckons the Jews to their Holy Land. SOUNDBITE: (English) \"It is written in our Bible that from all over the world Jews will come together to Israel, and one time will come, you see, when all the Jews will go there.\" SUPER CAPTION: Abrahim Samson, Indian Jew As elsewhere in the world, it is religion that has kept the community bound closely together. Synagogues and prayer halls are centres for social interaction and get-togethers. Concern about widespread migration of the young is often reflected in pleas published in the newspapers. Ancestors of Jews living in Bombay were known as Bene Israelis, meaning the children of Israel. The Bene Israelis have brown skins, unlike the White Jews of Cochin. The desire to keep the ethnic identity of the community intact has meant few inter-religious marriages. Jonathan Daniel, who works for Israeli Airlines in Bombay, says the search for better prospects and suitable life partners drives most young Jews to Israel. SOUNDBITE: (English) \"It is restricted. We don't usually go outcaste because if you want to marry outcaste you have to convert her to the Jewish religion and then we marry her.\" SUPER CAPTION: Jonathan Daniel Chewoolkar, Indian Jew Bombay's minority Jews have assimilated themselves well into the local Indian culture. They speak fluent Marathi - the local language - even though learning Hebrew is still a must. The attire for the Jewish women is the Indian sari, just like their Hindu counterparts. But cultural assimilation remains strictly within the parameters set by the Jewish religion. Religious rites and rituals are practised in the traditional manner, and the ethnic signature of the community remains distinct. Conscious of the historical persecution of the Jewish race in many parts of the world, Jews in India say the country's policy of religious tolerance is largely responsible for their long history in an alien land. SOUNDBITE: (Hindi) \"There are no restrictions on us in practising our religion here. We have adopted a few things from India but only those permitted by our religion.\" SUPER CAPTION: Gabriel Abrahim Galsovrkar, Indian Jew Every new year for the Jews in India brings with it the growing reality of their dwindling numbers. The occasion of Jewish new year is traditionally heralded by offering prayers at the ferry wharf in Bombay. It is believed that praying near the sea will rid the community of all its ills.
