Yom Kippur

Posted in music, Spirituality with tags , , , , , on 8,October,2008 by Mia

 

 

Tommorow is the eve of  Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, the most important day

in the Jewish Religion.

Yom Kippur is the tenth and final day of the 10 days of Repentance, which are tuned to

soul reflection of our past choices, behaviour and sins. During Yom Kippur, it is a custom to fast

for 25 hours strengthening the effect of repentance and praying for forgiveness.

It is believed that at the end of this Sacred day our fate is finally sealed in God`s book of Life.

Therefore¬†the birth of the wish – ¬†”Hatima Tova” which is a wish for a ”Good Seal”.

Here is¬†Sarit Hadad¬†singing ”Shma Israel

An appeal to God

A few words I have roughly translated from Hebrew-

..”You are capable of all, You have given me my life,You have given me everything,

…when the heart cries,time stands still

Man suddenly sees his whole life in front of him

Towards the unknown he doesnt want to go,

To his God he appeals on the edge of an abyss..

Strengthen me my God

and cause me not to fear…””

 

Circling the Earth..

Avinu Malkeinu- Our Father, our King

A prayer recited during the 10 days of repentance

between Rosh Hashana and yom kippur.

A special version Sung here by Barbara streisand,

with images taken from three religions showing on the clip

full lyrics translated here.

 

”Hear our prayer

We have sinned before thee

Have compassion upon us and upon our children

Help us bring an end to pestilence, war and famine

Cause all hate to vanish from the earth

Inscribe us for blessing in the book of life

Let the New year be a good year for us..”‘
