Dear TBA Davveners,
I hope you enjoy my YouTube video giving over some teachings and a lovely Sephardic melody for the sections of our wonderful tallis ritual.
With the Psalm verses that surround the actual blessing formula, we have a meditation that can, in a very short time, help us contact our inner depths in preparation for our ensuing avodat halev (service of the heart – prayer) and/or further meditations.
I hope this melody for the full texts surrounding the actual donning of the tallis will be an ongoing blessing for you.
The three-part ritual, as found in our Sim Shalom siddur, pages 3-4, is:
- The Barkhi Nafshi verses
- The Tallis Blessing Lehitatef Batsitsit
- The Ma Yakar verses
All praise to THE ONE,
