Mealtime Blessings, Volume 3 of the HPLS siddur is arranged into the
following four parts. The Hand-Book Edition and the
HPLS Bencher have
additional blessings for the Morning and Evening Kiddush for Shabbat
and Festivals. Otherwise all three are the same.
Part 1, Grace after Meals. Introductory Psalm 137, which is said on
weekdays and never sung, is in two-column format (
click here to see sample
format). The remainder of Volume 3 is usually said out loud and is completely
transliterated.
For the Sabbath and Festivals, the grace starts with introductory Psalm 126 (Sheer
HahMahAhloht
). The Invitation to Grace is then recited, followed by the four main
blessings that make up the Grace after Meals. Volume 3 has the complete grace
after meals, including passages for Chanukah, Purim, Rosh Chodesh (new moon),
and all the Jewish Holidays.
Part 2, The Seven Blessings for Bride and Groom (ShehVah
Brachot
). These blessings are said at the wedding ceremony and at the grace
after meal during the first week of marriage.
Part 3, Sabbath Songs (Z'mirot). Songs (all fully transliterated) traditionally
sung at the Sabbath table, includes:
M'nooChah V'simChah, Yohm Zeh
L'YisRahEhl, Mah Y'deeDoot, Tzoor MeeShehLoh, Yah ReeBohn, BahRooch Ehl
EhlYohn, Yohm Zeh M'chooBahd, Yohm ShahBahTohn, Kee EhshM'rah
ShahBaht, MeezMohr L'dahVeed
(Psalm 23), and Y'deed NehFehsh. The music
for these transliterations can be found on our
Shabbat Songs Page
Part 4, Various Blessings. This part of Volume 3 contains various blessings
pertaining to food, and includes the blessing for washing the hands, the
HahMohTzee (said before eating bread), ShehHahKohl (blessing said before
drinking liquids other than wine, and before eating food other than cakes and
pastry), and the blessings for eating fruit, vegetables, smelling fragrant spices, etc.
