Simple Kavvanah For A Ba’al Teki

אל אחד יחיד ומיוחד (El Echad Yachid U’M’Yuchad) One, Unique and Unifying God, may my efforts free the purest tones I can produce with this simple Shofar, the horn of the smallest, most insignificant of beasts, to rise straight to You, drawing with them the Neshamot, souls , all of them pure (אֱלֹהַי נְשָׁמָה שֶׁנָּתַתָּ בִּי טְהוֹרָה הִיא, “My God, the Neshama you placed within me, it is pure”), of all Yisrael. May these sweet tones of my Shofar continue to rise within You, sweetening all judgements that our actions caused these beautiful souls. May the echoes of these powerful tones fortify these souls as they return to this world of action, empowering each of us to find and lift our unique sparks and thus bring perfection to Your Creation. כן יהי רצון (Keyn Yehi Ratzon) May Your Will be thus.

    Shavua Tov Harry! I’ll definitely pass this on to our baal tokeiya. Is there any chance we can get you to join us? Maybe your local kids could come as well? Ken yehi ratzon, Avi

    • I’m happy that you’ll pass this kavvanah on and I hope it will enhance everyone’s Rosh HaShanah.
      Thank you for the invitation, but this seems a crucial year coming up and I can’t afford to “outsource” my davening.

    Thank you so much for coming last night Harry. It was good to see you. I realized afterwards that I neglected to introduce you properly. I don’t know if everybody there knew who you are and I should’ve at least said that you are a most wonderful Rabbi and Talmud teacher. So please forgive me for overlooking that.
