Yom Kippur Worship Services: Haftarah Blessings

Special inserts included in the final paragraph for Yom Kippur

The blessing after the reading of haftarah always sanctifies the day on which it is read. Throughout most of the year, that day is Shabbat, but haftarah is also read on the High Holidays. On Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur the text changes from the familiar Shabbat text to refer to the holiday. If either Rosh HaShanah or Yom Kippur falls on Shabbat, then the blessing mentions both the holiday and Shabbat. These changes only occur in the final paragraph of the blessing after the haftarah. The blessing before the haftarah does not change.

 

Hebrew Text for the Blessing following the Reading of the Haftarah on Yom Kippur

Baruch atah, Adonai Eloheinu, Melech haolam
tzur kol haolamim tzaddik b’chol hadorot,
haEil haneeman, haomer v’oseh,
ham’dabeir um’kayeim, shekol d’varav emet vatzedek.

Al haTorah, v’al haavodah, v’al han’viim, (v’al yom HaShabbat hazeh),
v’al Yom HaKippurim hazeh,
shenatata lanu, Adonai Eloheinu, (lik’dushah v’lim’nuchah),
Lim’chilah v’lis’lichah ulchaparah, l’chavod ul’tifaret.
Al hakol Adonai Eloheinu, anachnu modim lach um’var’chim otach, yitbarach
shimcha b’fi kol chai tamid l’olam vaed.
Ud’varcha emet v’kayam laad. Baruch atah, Adonai,
Melech mocheil v’soleiach laavonoteinu, v’laavonot amo beit Yisrael,
u’maavir ashmoteinu b’chol shanah v’shanah, Melech al kol haaretz,
(m’kadeish HaShabbat v) Yisrael vYom Hakippurim.
