Kabbalah4All Transliteration Guidelines


Please note that transliteration guidelines are different according to each culture and also within each movement of Judaism. We have developed these guidelines for use with our transliterated documents. They may or may not apply to transliterations put out by other movements including the various organizations teaching Kabbalah. a ai e ei i o oy u ch g tz as in father as in aisle as in red as in eight as in pizza as in no as in toy as in tune as in Bach in German (strong sound from the throat) as in give as in lots typically adds an EH sound after a consonant, this is known as a Shva Na or pronounced Shva as in the word Shma. a dash is simply used to aid in pronounciation, usually if two like vowels follow each other, as in the word da-at.

In Hebrew, the accent generally falls on the last syllable, however it sometimes falls somewhere else in the word. In our transliteration, when the syllable falls somewhere else other than the last syllable, that stressed syllable will be underlined. Example: Melech.

Hebrew Rules
The following are some of the Hebrew rules you may notice in our siddurim (connection books).

jl K n l k Eg nU i

In Hebrew, the accent generally falls on the last syllable, however it sometimes falls somewhere else in the word. Whenever a syllable other than the last is accented, a meteg (the vertical line under the first letter) will appear. The masoret above the letter Chaf indicates that this is a Kamatz Katan, which is pronounced as o; in this example the word is kol. The rafe above a letter indicates it is a Shva Na. This example is pronounced yismchu. Note that the rafe does not appear above the first letter of a word that has a Shva as that is ALWAYS a Shva Na.

Please do not publish or distribute without permission.

MINCHAH FOR ROSH HASHANAH

MINCHAH FOR ROSH HASHANAH
Minchah comes from the word Mnuchah which means quietness. The Kabbalists would pray Minchah as the sun was setting, because at this time judgements appear at their greatest intensity. The purpose of the Minchah connection is not to connect to the Creators Light, rather it is an opportunity to quiet the judgements and bring mercy into our world.

xkb ana
ANA BCHOACH
Considered by the Kabbalists to be the most powerful and mystical prayer of all; this sequence of Hebrew letters is known as the 42-Letter Name of the Creator. When we pray and meditate on this prayer, we are connecting in a very powerful way to the original force of creation and drawing healing energy and protection into our lives.

ASHREI
We find 21 of the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet encoded in this Psalm of David. The first letter of each word of each verse is the alphabet in its order. Nun was intentionally left out by King David because it has the same numeric value as the Hebrew word for falling, which would indicate a spiritual falling. This Psalm assists us to bring order and the power of creation into our lives.

Ashrei yoshvei veitecha,


Happy are those who dwell in Your house,

od yhallucha selah.
they will forever praise You.

Ashrei ha-am shekachah lo,


Happy the people whose portion is this,

ashrei ha-am she-Adonai Elohav.


happy the people for whom Hashem is their Elohim.

Thilah lDavid,
A Psalm of David,

UVAH LTZIYON
This blessing connects us to redemption. Redemption is a reference to Mashiach. Mashiach is not a person as many think, but a state of spirituality and consciousness that all people can achieve through spiritual transformation. Once a large number of people reach this state, the Mashiach will appear for the entire human race.

Uvah lTziyon go-eil,


A redeemer shall come to Zion,

ulshavei fesha bYa-akov,


and to those who turn away from misdeed among Jacob,

num Adonai.
so says Hashem.

Va-ani zot briti


And as for me this is my covenant

with them said Hashem,

ruchi asher alecha,


my Spirit which is upon you,

udvarai asher samti bficha


and my words that I have put in your mouth

lo yamushu mipicha, umipi


shall not depart for your mouth, the mouths

zaracha, umipi zera zaracha,


of your children, or the mouths of childrens children

amar Adonai, mei-atah vad olam.


said Hashem, from now and forever.

Vatah kadosh,
And You are holy,

yosheiv thilot Yisra-eil.


and await the praises of Israel.

Vkara zeh el zeh vamar,


And one called to the other and said,

Kadosh kadosh kadosh

THE AMIDAH

dcinr

hdymi
THE AMIDAH
Amidah comes from the word Amad which literally means to stand and is therefore known as the Standing Prayer. It connects us to Atzilut, the world of Ein Sof. It is also connects us to the Creators Light both as individuals and as a community in a powerful and intimate way. Through the opening verse we ask the Creator to speak through us so that our prayers are coming from our higher selves rather than from our ego selves. The first three blessings pay homage to the Creator, the middle blessings consist of the sanctification of the day on Shabbat, and the final three blessings express our gratitude. Through the closing prayers, we ask that we be kept in a state of spiritual awareness and we reiterate that all of the words we have uttered have come from the heart. The Amidah is complete as we send peace out to the community and to the entire world.
Everyone says the words of each blessing in a soft tone at the same time the Leader is chanting them. At the end of each blessing Everyone reponds with on ` Amein. The entire Amidah should be said without interruption, therefore the prefaces to the prayers are not read aloud during this section. We take three steps backward that represent withdrawing our attention from the physical world. With complete concentration, we take three steps forward which signify stepping into the land of Israel, into the city of Jerusalem, and into the Kadosh Hakadashim (the Holy of Holies).
