Qedushta Additions for the Public Repetition of the Amidah on Sigd, adapted from the original liturgical texts by Isaac Gantwerk Mayer

https://opensiddur.org/?p=53326 Qedushta Additions for the Public Repetition of the Amidah on Sigd, adapted from the original liturgical texts by Isaac Gantwerk Mayer 2023-11-12 09:12:08 This is a Hebrew adaptation of the poems traditionally recited by the Beta Israel community for the festival of Sigd, altered and adapted to fit the traditional <em>qedushta</em> form of poetic Amidah additions. The texts of the first few prayers were rewritten substantially and combined with relevant verses so as to fit in the strict form of the <em>magen</em>, <em>mehaye</em>, <em>meshalesh</em>, and <em>El Na</em>. After this, the <em>qiqlar</em> is slightly edited to fit a couplet rhyme scheme, while the <em>silluq</em> (the freest of the genres of qedusha piyyut) is almost entirely preserved — the only change being several verses whose placement is postponed so as to better lead into the qedusha as a <em>silluq</em> should. Regarding translations, the <em>silluq</em> largely uses my original translation with slight alterations (replacing the clunky use of 'God' as a pronoun with a gender-neutral THEIR, translating the Agaw passages into Latin rather than English to preserve general comprehensibility while clarifying that this is a different language), while the rest of the poems are different enough for their translation to largely be from scratch. These would be recited with the Ark open for all the piyyutim, as one would on the Yamim Noraim, ideally using melodies from the Sigd liturgy.

Note: “The CAUSE” is used to translate the Divine Name YHVH, based on the philosophical idea of God as the Prime Mover and on the interpretation of the Name as a causative form of the copula – “causes to be.”

And it is said —
Beautiful as honey, joy of all the earth, Mt. Zion, the uppermost edge, city of the highest Sovereign. God in its palaces is known as a fortress. (Psalm 48:3-4)
וְאַתָּ֥ה קָד֑וֹשׁ י֝וֹשֵׁ֗ב תְּהִלּ֥וֹת יִשְׂרָאֵֽל׃
