ALIYAH HOW-TO

 

 

Members of our Synagogue family are regularly honored by being called to the bimah for the Torah reading. It’s an exciting time and a chance to recite the time-honored words of praise before and after the reading. Click above to hear Cantor Becker chant the Torah Blessings

Before Reading The Torah
בָּרְכוּ אֶת יְיָ הַמְבֹרָך
בָּרוּךְ יְיָ הַמְבֹרָךְ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד
בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ אֱלֹהֵֽינוּ מֶֽלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, אֲשֶׁר בָּֽחַר בָּֽנוּ מִכָּל הָעַמִּים וְנָֽתַן לָֽנוּ אֶת תּוֹרָתוֹ
בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ, נוֹתֵן הַתּוֹרָה
