FRUMToronto Articles Special Prayers

There are times throughout the year where it is an especially powerful time to daven, or there is a time in someoneís life where they need a special prayer said.

SHEMA YISROEL NOW - 9 pm tonight
The following is a message from the "[blue]Shema Yisrael Now[/blue]" committee, based in Chicago, regarding the 6th annual [red]worldwide Shema Yisrael effort[/red] for [red]Hoshana Rabba[/red], scheduled for [red]Thursday, October 12th at 9 p.m[/red]. The effort is coordinated by the Shema Yisrael Now committee, which seeks to raise awareness of the importance and protective power of the Shema Yisrael prayer. The holiday "Hoshana Rabba", which is the seventh and final night of the holiday of Succot, is a final chance to overturn difficult heavenly decrees that might have been written on Rosh Hashana. As such, Hoshana Rabba is marked by intense prayer and repentance. We have the opportunity on this significant date to state our firmest belief that He is the One and Only. With the opportunity to help avert decrees, please join with others to remove or soften the blow. This year, Hoshana Rabba falls out on Thursday night, Oct. 12th. On this day dedicated to prayer, there will be a special unified effort centering on our most basic and powerful prayer, and declaration of faith, the Shema Yisrael prayer. [red]At 9 p.m. Oct. 12th, Jews in many communities will stop what they are doing and say the Shema prayer[/red]-- the Jewish basic declaration of faith, in unity with Jews around the globe. The basic Shema prayer that many will recite on the Hoshana Rabba night is comprised of six words: [blue]Shema Yis-ra-el A-do-noi E-lo-hei-nu A-d-noi E-chad[/blue] Translation: Hear, Israel, Hashem is (now) our G-d, Hashem is the One and Only. This is followed by the whispered recital of the following six words: [blue]Ba-ruch Shem Kev-od Mal-chuso Le-Olam Va'ed[/blue] Translation: Blessed is the Name of His glorious kingdom for all eternity. This refers to our silent aspiration that the entire world should soon recognize Hashem's glory. The Shema prayer is one of the 613 Commandments and our most basic, powerful declaration of our faith in One G-D When saying the Shema prayer, concentrate intensely upon accepting G-Dís absolute sovereignty [red][i]All Jews are encouraged to join this special united effort by saying the Shema prayer at 9 p.m. Oct. 12th, with their families or whomever they are with at the time.[/i][/red] We strongly encourage all Jewish people to say the Shema prayer every morning and evening, every single day, as a way to unite the Jewish people and help bring peace to our world.
