Blessing Before Torah Reading in Hebrew and ASL (Reconstructionist version)

Rabbis Darby Leigh and Roni Handler demonstrate the Reconstructionist blessing before the Torah reading in ASL and Hebrew singing.


בָּרְכוּ אֶת אֲדֹנָי הַמְּבֹרָךְ


Barkhu et Adonay hamvorakh.


  בָּרוּךְ אֲדֹנָי הַמְּבֹרָךְ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד. 


Barukh Adonai ham’vorakh l’olam va’ed.


  בָּרוּךְ אֲדֹנָי הַמְּבֹרָךְ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד. 

 בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה אֲדֹנָי אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם אֲשֶׁר קֵרְבָנוּ לַעֲבוֹדָתוֹ וְנָתַן לָנוּ אֶת תּוֹרָתוֹ. בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה אֲדֹנָי נוֹתֵן הַתּוֹרָה


Barukh Adonay ham’vorakh l’olam va’ed.

Barukh atah Adonay eloheynu melekh haolam asher kervanu la’vudato v’natan lanu et torato. Barukh atah Adonay noten haTorah.


Bless Adonay who is blessed.

Blessed is Adonay who is blessed forever and ever.

Blessed is Adonay who is blessed forever and ever.
Blessed are you, Adonay, our G-d, sovereign of the universe, who has brought us close to his works and gave us his Torah. Blessed is Adonay, who gave the Torah.
