“Coal Miners’ Prayer” (CCAR 1924)

Contributed on: 27 Sep 2023 by Aharon N. Varady (transcription) | Unknown Author(s) | Central Conference of American Rabbis (CCAR) |

This prayer by an unknown author is first found in Evening Service for the Sabbath from the Union Prayer Book (Newly Revised) (1924), p. 45. (It also appears on the same page of the 1940 edition of the “newly revised” UPB.) The prayer is included as a third variation of a Reform synagogue’s Shabbat evening service, in the Amidah before the silent meditation. Rabbi Michael Satz of Temple B’nai Or (Morristown, New Jersey) affectionately refers to it as the “Coal Miner’s Prayer.” . . .


📖 Evening Service for the Sabbath from the Union Prayer Book, Newly Revised (CCAR 1924)

Contributed on: 27 Sep 2023 by Central Conference of American Rabbis (CCAR) |

Evening Service for the Sabbath from the Union Prayer Book, Newly Revised (CCAR 1924), a Reform movement prayerbook disseminated by Congregation Emanu-El in New York City in 1924, was the first publication of the “Newly Revised” edition of the Union Prayerbook, published as a complete prayerbook in 1940. . . .


Land of Hope and Promise, a prayer for Israel (CCAR 1975)

Contributed on: 22 Apr 2022 by Aharon N. Varady (transcription) | Unknown Author(s) | Central Conference of American Rabbis (CCAR) |

“Land of Hope and Promise” was published in Gates of Prayer: The New Union Prayerbook (CCAR 1975), pp. 240-241. In 1984, it was proved as the “Prayer for Israel” in the Prayerbook for Jewish Personnel in the Armed Forces of the United States (Jewish Welfare Board 1984), p. 436. The work appears to have been adapted from a much earlier paraliturgical hashkivenu prayer offered in the Evening Service for the Sabbath from the Union Prayer Book Newly Revised (CCAR 1924) to be said by the Reader between the Shema and the Amidah in a version (№5) of the Friday night service, pp. 68-69. . . .


A Prayer for Protection from Oppression and Persecution (CCAR 1924)

Contributed on: 27 Apr 2022 by Aharon N. Varady (transcription) | Unknown Author(s) | Central Conference of American Rabbis (CCAR) |

This is an untitled prayer offered in the Evening Service for the Sabbath from the Union Prayer Book Newly Revised (CCAR 1924), pp. 68-69, as a reading between the Shema and the Amidah. As a prayer for protection it fits as a paraliturgical haskivenu, and in New York City, it makes sense in the context of the terrifying news of mass-murder, rape, and genocide being reported from Ukraine at the time. (Find Nokhem Shtif’s “פּאָגראָמען אין אוקראַיִנע : די צײַט פֿון דער פֿרײַװיליקער אַרמײ (The Pogroms in Ukraine: the Period of the Volunteer Army)” (1923) offered in Yiddish and in English translation at In Geveb.) The Ukrainian context of this prayer is further underscored in that the prayer is not found in the 1918 revised Union Prayer Book, but in the later 1924 edition. It may have been unique to Congregation Emanu-El in New York City, who compiled this version of the Union Prayer Book for radio listeners joining their service. . . .
