Lessons for Wednesday, 30 Nissan, 5771

Nusach HaTefila 2-4

Today we continue with Maimonides’ “Order of Prayer.” (The Daily Mitzvah schedule runs parallel to the daily study of three chapters of Maimonides’ 14-volume code. This is what is being studied today according to the three-chapter-a-day-schedule.)

We have not translated this order into English, because the point of it is not to provide a translation of the prayers (in fact, the Hebrew text often skips out passages not relevant to the structure), but to lay out the way Maimonides structured his prayer book.

As such, we present you today with parts 2-4 of the original Hebrew “Order of Prayer.” These sections contain the text of the amidah, inserts in the amidah for various special dates, the text of the kedushah recited during the prayer leader’s repetition of the amidah, the text of the kaddish, the texts of the prayers recited (during the morning prayer) after the amidah, the text of holiday, Rosh Chodesh, and High Holiday amidahs, as well as the Yom Kippur confession of sins.
