ברוך אתה ה’ מברך השנים
BLESSED ARE YOU HASHEM THAT BLESSES THE YEARS

Thank You for all of our years; the meals, the clothing, the delicacies, all produced solely from Your abundant and never-ending kindliness.

תקע בשופר גדול לחרותנו
BLOW WITH A GREAT SHOFAR FOR OUR FREEDOM
The Shofar will be heard even by the nations of the world who are unwilling to listen, to warn and affright them to liberate us and our land from subjection – לחרותנו, for our freedom.
 
ושא נס
AND RAISE UP A BANNER
This banner will be seen only by Hashem’s beloved nation that chooses to see it, and they will know that the awaited time has finally come. But those that do not wish to look, “they will not merit to see its joy” (Taanis 30b).
 
לקבץ גליותנו
TO GATHER OUR EXILES
No more will we be hindered by our gentile neighbors, and together we will stimulate each other to virtue and closeness to Hashem.
 
לקבץ גליותנו
TO GATHER OUR EXILES
Hashem’s banner will only gather our ‘exiles’, that is, those who consider themselves strangers among the nations, and wish to remain no longer – only they will hasten to come at the sight of the banner.
