Jewish Prayers From the Heart and Pen of Alden Solovy

Rosh Hashana Prayers

שנה טובה

Here are prayers for Rosh Hashana with brief descriptions, divided into two topics: living in holiness and for creation and the new year. Here’s a focused list of prayers for Elul, a list of prayers for Yom Kippur and one more for Sukkot. And here’s a link to yizkor and memorial prayers.

For Creation and the New Year

Meditations for the New Year, which is also Yom Harat Olam, the birthday of the world:

  • For the New Year – In thanks for the New Year, the flow of time and the gift of life. (http://bit.ly/cp4BDd)
  • Another Year: Introspection – A reflection on the passage of time and how to use it.  (http://bit.ly/hm6uPA)
  • For Creation – A quick meditation on the beauty of creation. (http://bit.ly/dPLEA0)
  • Rhythms – A meditation about the contrasting rhythms of life, time moving in a straight line and holiness moving in circles. (http://tinyurl.com/26dzy37)
  • About the Rainbow –  A reflection on the glory of creation. (http://bit.ly/9ySwAH)
