Support My Jewish Learning

With fewer than three weeks until Rosh Hashanah begins, it’s the busiest time of year on My Jewish Learning.

This holiday season My Jewish Learning will offer dozens of ways for Jewish learners of all backgrounds to prepare for and learn about the High Holidays. From articles that answer readers’ most burning questions about holiday traditions, to helpful explanations of the prayers you’re likely to say in synagogue on the holidays, to our live conversations with leading rabbis, there is something for everyone on MJL. But we can’t offer all of these learning opportunities without you.

Maybe My Jewish Learning has helped you better understand holiday rituals, or to dive deeper into the meaning of forgiveness, or even to find innovative and delicious ways to break your Yom Kippur fast. MJL helps millions of Jewish learners every year, and donations from readers like you make it possible.

It’s easy to make a gift to My Jewish Learning online. Please contribute to our mission of providing a welcoming and credible source of Jewish information, during the High Holidays and throughout the year.

Mastering a Hebrew Synagogue Service

Prayer Books in Synagogue

Praying in Hebrew

Jewish prayer can be recited in any language. The ancient rabbis were explicit about this. God, after all, can understand us in whatever tongue we speak.

Nevertheless, the prevailing custom has long been to pray in Hebrew, a holy language for Jews, and this remains the practice almost universally. Though most synagogues will include prayers in the vernacular to some degree, some prayers — and often the most significant ones — are almost always recited in Hebrew.

In this email, we’ll review some options for you if you find a Hebrew service challenging to follow.

Find a Transliteration that Works for You

One option is to acquire a prayer book, a siddur, with transliteration, where the Hebrew text is matched by a phonetic translation into English.

Currently, the Reform movement’s Mishkan T’filah is the only fully transliterated siddur you are likely to find in a synagogue. If that is not available where you are going to synagogue, you may have to bring your own.

Artscroll, the leading publisher of Orthodox prayer books, offers a version of its siddur with line-by-line transliterations and translations, meaning each line of every prayer is given in the original Hebrew opposite a phonetic transliteration and a translation of the meaning into plain English.

The Conservative movement’s Siddur Lev Shalem (and its predecessor, Siddur Sim Shalom, which many congregations still use) offer transliterations of the major prayers likely to be said aloud.

Get to Know Some Common Prayer Words

Knowing some key Hebrew prayer words can also help you follow along during the service. Our glossary of common prayer words will help you get familiar with some of the essential word that you’ll encounter again and again in the siddur. It’s a long list, but there is nothing wrong with learning just one or a few at a time.

Learn a Little Hebrew

Learning a new language is daunting, but with Hebrew and prayer you might be pleasantly surprised to find a little learning can go a long way. Learning to sound out Hebrew text isn’t as hard as you might think. For starters, Hebrew is a completely phonetic language. That means that words are pronounced exactly as they appear.

There are many options available online, from free apps to self-directed lessons to proper online courses taught by a live instructor and offered by accredited institutions.

Stained Glass Window
The Joy of Praying in Hebrew

Praying in Hebrew can be a powerful experience even if you don’t understand all the words. The emotional impact of saying the prayers in Hebrew is an experience you don’t want to miss.

Whichever approach you choose, acquiring some basic familiarity with the language of Jewish prayer enhances not only the synagogue experience, but connects you to Jewish people through time and across the globe and to the language in which they have sought for millennia to connect to God.
