Torah Portion Prayers

Jewish people before starting the Torah Portion on Sabbath (Saturday is when they have the Torah Portion, but Sabbath starts at Friday sunset and lasts till Saturday sunset).

It consists of reading the Parasha (five books of Moshe/Moses), the Haftarah (the books of Prophets), and for us in the Torah Keeper which we are the Messianic Apostolic Prophetic Ministry – We also include the New Testaments because we believe YAHUSHUA is the MESSIAH that had come and died for our sins, and WHOM will come again.

Below are the orders of how we do the Torah Portion, and they are taught by our Father Prophet and Apostle from Israel – Ezra. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to us.

Beginning of the Torah Portion


Psalm 1 Blessed is the man who has not walked in the counsel of the wicked, and has not stood in the way of sinners, and has not sat in the seat of scorners. But his delight is only in the Torah of YAHUVEH, and he meditates in His Torah day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivulets of waters, which will give its fruit in its seasons, and its leaf will not wither, and all which he does will prosper. Not so are the wicked, but they are only as chaff which the wind drives about. On account of this the wicked shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For YAHUVEH is knowing the way of the righteous, and the way of the wicked shall perish. Declaration Psalm 19 The Torah of YAHUVEH is perfect, converting the soul. The Testimony of YAHUVEH is sure, making the simple wise. The precepts of YAHUVEH are right, rejoicing the heart. The Commandments of YAHUVEH are clear, giving light to the eyes. The fear of YAHUVEH is clean, enduring forever. The judgments of YAHUVEH are true, they are righteous altogether. They are more precious than gold, even much fine gold, and sweeter than honey and drops from the honeycomb. Also Your servant is warned by them; in keeping of them is great reward. Who can discern errors? Acquit me from secret faults. Also withhold Your servant from arrogant sins; do not let them rule over me; then I shall be complete, and I shall be innocent from great transgression. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing before You, O YAHUVEH, my Rock and my Redeemer. Psalm 92 A Song for the Sabbath Day. It is good to give thanks to YAHUVEH, and to sing praises to Your name, O Most High; to make Your mercy known in the morning, and Your faithfulness every night; on the ten strings, and on the harp; on the lyre with sounding music. For You have rejoiced me with Your work, O YAHUVEH; I will shout in the works of Your hands. How great are Your works! O YAHUVEH, Your intentions are very deep. An animal-like man does not know; a fool does not understand this. When the wicked flourish like grass, and all the evildoers blossom, it is for them to be destroyed forever. But You, O YAHUVEH, are exalted forever. For, lo, Your enemies, O YAHUVEH; for, lo, Your enemies shall perish; all the evildoers shall be scattered. But You will lift up my horn as the wild ox, and I will be anointed with fresh oil. And my eye shall look on my enemies; my ears shall hear the evildoers who rise up against me. The righteous shall flourish as the palm tree; he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those planted in the house of YAHUVEH, in the courts of our Elohim, shall flourish. They shall bear fruit in old age; they shall be fat and fresh, to declare that YAHUVEH is upright, my Rock! And in Him is no evil. Psalm 93 The LORD YAHUVEH reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the LORD YAHUVEH is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved. Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting. The floods have lifted up, O LORD YAHUVEH, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves. The LORD YAHUVEH on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea. Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thine house, O LORD YAHUVEH, for ever.




Prayer before Parasha


ברוך אתה יי אלוהינו מלך העולם אשר קדשנו במצותיו
וצונו לעסוק בדברי תורה.
Baruch ata YAHUVEH Eloheinu Melech Ha’olam Asher kidshanu Bemitzvotav vetzivanu La’asok be’d’vari ha’Torah Blessed are YOU, YAHUVEH our GOD, Creator and King of the Universe. YOU have blessed us with YOUR Torah of Truth. YOU have blessed us with the whole counsel of YOUR living Word by the power of YOUR RUACH HAKODESH (HOLY SPIRIT) through the completed work of MESSIAH YAHUSHUA. Prayer before Parasha Before the Torah is removed, all recite: וַיְהִי בִּנְסֹעַ הָאָרֹן וַיֹּאמֶר משֶׁה. קוּמָה יָהּ וְיָפֻצוּ אֹיְבֶיךָ. וְיָנֻסוּ מְשַׂנְאֶיךָ מִפָּנֶיךָ 
כִּי מִצִּיּוֹן תֵּצֵא תוֹרָה. וּדְבַר יָהּ מִירוּשָׁלָיִם 
בָּרוּךְ שֶׁנָּתַן תּוֹרָה לְעַמּוֹ יִשְׁרָאֵל בִּקְדֻשָּׁתוֹ Ya-y’hee binso’a ha-Aron va-yomer Moshe, Kuma YAH v’yafutzu Oyvecha, v’yanusu M’san’echa Mipanecha. Ki mi-Tziyon taytzay Torah, Ki mi-Tziyon taytzay Torah, ud’var YAH Mirushalayim. Baruch she-natan Torah, Torah, Baruch she-natan Torah, Torah, l’Amo Yisrael Bik’dushato. When the Ark would travel Moses would say, “Arise, O YAH, and let Your enemies be scattered, let those who hate YOU flee from YOU.” For from Zion the Torah will come forth and the Word of YAH from Jerusalem. Blessed is HE Who gave the Torah to HIS people Israel in HIS Holiness. (Numbers 10:35; Isaiah 2:3) Reader: בֵּהּ אֲנָא רָחִיץ. וְלִשְׁמֵהּ קַדִּישָׁא יַקִּירָא אֲנָא אֵמַר תֻּשְׁבְּחָן. יְהֵא רַעֲוָא קֳדָמָךְ דְּתִפְתַּח לִבָּאִי בְּאוֹרַיְתָא. וְתַשְׁלִים מִשְׁאֲלִין דְּלִבָּאִי וְלִבָּא דְכָל עַמָּךְ יִשְׂרָאֵל. לְטַב וּלְחַיִּין וְלִשְׁלָם. Bay nah rachitz, v’lish’may kadisha yakira ana aymar tush’b’chan. Y’hay ra’a’va kadamach, d’tif’tach liba-ee b’Oraita, v’tash’lim mish’alin d’liba-ee, v’liba d’chal Amach Yisrael, l’tav ul’chayyin v’lish’lam. Amen. In HIM do I trust, and to HIS glorious and Holy Name do I declare praises. May it be YOUR will that YOU open my heart to YOUR Torah, and that YOU fulfill the desires of my heart and the heart of YOUR entire people Israel for good, for life and for peace in YAHUSHUA’s name, Amen Removal of the Torah אֵין כָּמוֹךָ בָאֱלֺהִים יַהֲוֶה. וְאֵין כְּמַעֲשֶׂיךָ: מַלְכוּתְךָ מַלְכוּת כָּל עוֹלָמִים. וּמֶמְשַׁלְתְּךָ בְּכָל דּוֹר וָדוֹר: יָהּ מֶלֶךְ. יָהּ מָלָךְ. יָהּ יִמְלֺךְ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד: יָהּ עֺז לְעַמּוֹ יִתֵּן. יָהּ יְבָרֵךְ אֶת עַמּוֹ בַשָּׁלוֹם Ayn kamocha VaElohim YAHUVEH, v’ayn K’ma-asecha.

There is none like YOU among the gods, YAHUVEH, and there is nothing like YOUR works. YOUR Kingdom is an everlasting Kingdom, and YOUR dominion is throughout every generation. YAHUVEH reigns, YAHUVEH has reigned, YAHUVEH shall reign for all eternity. YAHUVEH will give might to HIS people; YAHUVEH will bless HIS people with peace. (Psalms 86:8; 145:13; 10:16; Exodus 15:18; Psalms 29:11) אַב הָרַחֲמִים. הֵיטִיבָה בִרְצוֹנְךָ אֶת צִיּוֹן. תִּבְנֶה חוֹמוֹת יְרוּשָׁלָיִם: כִּי בְךָ לְבַד בָּטָחְנוּ. מֶלֶךְ אֵל רָם וְנִשָּׂא אֲדוֹן עוֹלָמִים Av ha-rachamim, haytiva Vir-tzon-cha et Tziyon, tiv’neh chomot Y’rushalayim, tiv’neh chomot Y’rushalayim. KiV’cha l’vad batach’nu, Melech El ram v’nissa, Adon Olamim. FATHER of compassion, do good with Zion according to YOUR will; rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. For we trust in YOU alone, o KING, GOD, exalted and uplifted, MASTER of the worlds. (Psalms 51:20). The ark is now opened Chazzan: שְׁמַע יִשְׂרָאֵל יַהֲוֶה אֱלֺהֵינוּ יָהּ אֶחָד Sh’ma Yisrael, YAHUVEH Eloheinu, YAHUVEH Echad אֶחָד אֱלהֵינוּ. גָּדוֹל אֲדוֹנֵינוּ. קָדוֹשׁ שְׁמוֹ. Echad Eloheinu, Gadol Adonainu, Kadosh Sh’mo גַּדְּלוּ לְיָהּ אִתִּי. וּנְרוֹמְמָה שְׁמוֹ יַחְדָּו Gadlu LeYAH eetee, un’rom’mah Sh’mo yach’dav Hear, O Israel: YAHUVEH is our GOD, YAHUVEH is One. (Deut 6:4) One is our ELOHIM, Great is our Master, Holy is HIS Name. Declare the greatness of YAH, and let us exalt HIS Name together. (Psalms 34:4) Reading of The Torah The first Aliyah is given to a Kohen, if present. The “Ba’al Koreh” (Torah Reader) announces the Torah portion and calls the first “oleh” (the person called to the Torah), for the first Aliyah: Ya-a-mod (Hebrew First Name) ben (Faher’s Htebrew First Name) (ha-Kohen) la-Torah. Arise, (First name) son of (Fathers first name) the Kohen to the Torah. Oleh: בָּרְכוּ אֶת יָהּ הַמְבֺרָךְ Bar’chu et YAH ha’me’vo’rach. Bless YAH, the blessed One. Congregation: בָּרוּךְ יָהּ הַמְבֺרָךְ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד Baruch YAH ha’me’vo’rach le’olam va’ed. Bless YAH, the Blessed One, forever and ever. Oleh continues: בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יַהֲוֶה אֱלֺהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם אֲשֶׁר בָּחַר בָּנוּ מִכָּל הָעַמִּים וְנָתַן לָנוּ אֶת תּוֹרָתוֹ. בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יָהּ נוֹתֵן הַתּוֹרָה Baruch atah YAHUVEH Elohaynu Melech ha-olam, asher bachar banu mikol ha-amim v’natan lanu et Torah-toh. Baruch atah YAHUVEH, Notayn ha-Torah. (Congregation – Amen). Blessed are YOU O, YAHUVEH our GOD, KING of the Universe, Who has chosen us from all peoples and gave us HIS Torah. Blessed are You O, YAHUVEH, giver of the Torah.

Read the 5 Books of Moses portion for the week.




Prayer after Parasha

Baruch atah YAH, Notayn ha-Torah. Blessed are YOU O YAHUVEH our GOD, King of the universe, who has given us a Torah of Truth, and eternal life in YAHUSHUA our MASHIACH. Blessed are You O YAHUVEH, Giver of the Torah. The Closing of the Torah The Torah is raised for all to see as the following is chanted: וְזֺאת הַתּוֹרָה אֲשֶׁר שָׂם מֺשֶׁה לִפְנֵי בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל: עַל פִּי יהוה בְּיַד מֺשֶׁה V’zot ha-Torah ashwer sahm Moshe lif’nay B’nay Yisrael al pee YAHUVEH b’yad Moshe. And this is the Torah that Moses placed before the Children of Israel, at the command of YAHUVEH, by the hand of Moses. (Deut. 4:44; Numbers 9:23) With the Ark remaining open, all chant together: עֵץ חַיִּים הִיא לַמַּחֲזִיקִים בָּהּ. וְתֺמְכֶיהָ מְאֻשָּׁר. דְּרָכֶיהָ דַרְכֵי נֺעַם וְכָל נְתִיבֺתֶיהָ שָׁלום. הֲשִׁיבֵנוּ יהוה אֵלֶיךָ וְנָשׁוּבָה. חַדֵּשׁ יָמֵינוּ כְּקֶדֶם Aytz, cha-yim hee la-ma-cha-zikim bah, v’tom’chay’ha m’ushar. D’rachay-ha dar’chay no-am, v’chal n’tee-vo-tay-ha shalom. Hashee-vaynu YAHUVEH, aylecha v’na-shuva, chadaysh, chadaysh ya-maynu, chadaysh yamaynu k’keh-dem. It is a tree of life to those who take hold of it, and those who support it are praiseworthy. Its ways are ways of pleasantness and all its paths are peace. Bring us back to YOU O YAHUVEH, and we shall come, renew our days as of old. (Proverbs 3:17-18; Lam. 5:21) The Torah is now tied and covered. The Ark is Closed and All Are Seated.
