Opening Hymn
[Hymns Ancient & Modern 84 SE, adapted.]

Once more the solemn season calls
A holy fast to keep;
And now within the temple wall
Let priest and people weep.

But vain all outward sign of grief,
And vain the form of prayer,
Unless the heart implore relief,
And penitence be there.

We smite the breast, we weep in vain,
In vain we deeply mourn,
Unless with penitential pain
The smitten soul be torn.

In sorrow true then let us pray
To our offended God,
From us to turn his wrath away,
And stay the uplifted rod.

O God, our Judge and Father, deign
To spare the bruised reed;
We pray for time to turn again,
For grace to turn indeed.

Bow at the last stanza:
Blest Holy One, to Thee we bow;
Vouchsafe us, in Thy love,
To gather from these fasts below
Immortal fruit above.

[From The Church of England Book of Common Prayer, adapted.]
At the beginning the Minister shall read with a loud voice some one or more of these Sentences of the Scriptures that follow. And then he shall say that which is written after the said Sentences.

When the wicked man turneth away from his wickedness that he hath committed, and doeth that which is lawful and right, he shall save his soul alive. Ezek. xviii. 27.

I acknowledge my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me. Psalm li. 3.

Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities. Psalm li. 9.

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. Psalm li. 17.

Rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the Lord your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil. Joel ii. 13.

To the Lord our God belong mercies and forgivenesses, though we have rebelled against him; neither have we obeyed the voice of the Lord our God, to walk in his laws which he set before us. Daniel ix. 9, 10.

O Lord, correct me, but with judgment; not in thine anger, lest thou bring me to nothing. Jer. x. 24. Psalm vi. 1.

Repent ye; for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. St. Matt. iii. 2.

I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee, and am no more worthy to be called thy son. St. Luke xv. 18, 19.

Enter not into judgment with thy servant, O Lord; for in thy sight shall no man living be justified. Psalm cxliii. 2.

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us; but if we confess our sins, God is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 St. John i. 8, 9.

Dearly beloved, the Scripture moveth us, in sundry places, to acknowledge and confess our manifold sins and wickedness; and that we should not dissemble nor cloak them before the face of Almighty God our heavenly Father; but confess them with an humble, lowly, penitent, and obedient heart; to the end that we may obtain forgiveness of the same, by his infinite goodness and mercy. And although we ought, at all times, humbly to acknowledge our sins before God; yet ought we chiefly so to do, when we assemble and meet together to render thanks for the great benefits that we have received at his hands, to set forth his most worthy praise, to hear his most holy Word, and to ask those things which are requisite and necessary, as well for the body as the soul. Wherefore I pray and beseech you, as many as are here present, to accompany me with a pure heart, and humble voice, unto the throne of the heavenly grace, saying with me:

A general Confession is to be said of the whole Congregation together with the Minister, all kneeling.

Almighty and most merciful Father; We have erred, and strayed from thy ways like lost sheep. We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts. We have offended against thy holy laws. We have left undone those things which we ought to have done; And we have done those things which we ought not to have done; And there is no health in us. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us, miserable offenders. Spare thou them, O God, who confess their faults. Restore thou them that are penitent; According to thy promises declared unto mankind in Messiah Yeshua our Lord. And grant, O most merciful Father, for his sake; That we may hereafter live a godly, righteous, and sober life, To the glory of thy holy Name. Amen.

Then all confess their personal  sins in a short silent prayer.

The Minister pronounces a general Absolution, or Remission of sins, standing; the people still kneeling.

Almighty God, the Father of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, who desireth not the death of a sinner, but rather that he may turn from his wickedness, and live: He pardoneth and + absolveth all them that truly repent, and unfeignedly believe his holy Gospel. Wherefore let us beseech him to grant us true repentance, and his Holy Spirit, that those things may please him, which we do at this present; and that the rest of our life hereafter may be pure, and holy; so that at the last we may come to his everlasting joy; through Yeshua the Messiah our Lord.

The people shall answer here, and at the end of all other prayers, Amen.

Then the Minister shall kneel again, and say The Lord’s Prayer with an audible voice, together with the people.

Our Father, which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, As it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive them that trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For thine is the kingdom, The power, and the glory, For ever and ever. Amen.

Now follows the Kol Nidre:
[From the Fischer Siddur pp. 73-74]
All vows, oaths, and pledges which we may be forced to take between this Yom Kippur and the next, of these we repent and these we renounce. Let them all be nullified and voided, and let us be + absolved and released. Let such personal vows, pledges, and oaths be considered neither vows, nor pledges, nor oaths.

Minister:
May all the congregation of the children of Israel be forgiven and all the strangers who live among them, for all the people are in fault.

People:
O please forgive the iniquities of this people according to thy great kindness, even as thou hast pardoned this people from Egypt until now. For thou hast told us: “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness”.

Our God and God of our forefathers
Yes, it is true, our evil inclination influences us;
Clear us, O Merciful One, so answer us:
I forgive.
Silence the accuser, let an advocate take his place;
O Lord, give our advocate thy support and say:
I forgive.
Confer on us the merit of our Messiah.
Remove all sin and loudly proclaim from heaven:
I forgive.
Good and Forgiving One, pardon and forgive sinners.
O God give heed, and also reply from the heights:
I forgive
Heal my wound, hide deeply my iniquity;
For thy Name, on my behalf say the word:
I forgive.
Blot out evil from among thy people;
Show thy faithful love and thy glory and say:
I forgive.
Cleanse every evil quickly as mist vanishes,
Blot out the guilt of a people delivered and say:
I forgive.
Remember the atonement of our Messiah Yeshua,
“Father, forgive” was on his lips, so say to us:
I forgive.

All rise for the following prayers [adapted from the Episcopal Church’s Book of Common Prayer]

Minister       O Lord, hear our prayer,
People         And let our cry come to thee
Minister       Let us pray

Almighty and most merciful God, kindle within us the fire of love, that by its cleansing flame we may be purged of all our sins and made worthy to worship thee in spirit and in truth; through Yeshua the Messiah our Lord. Amen.

The Minister says the prayer for the (Shabbat and) Yom Kippur light.
O Lord God Almighty, as thou hast taught us to call the evening, the morning, and the noonday one day; and hast made the sun to know its going down: Dispel the darkness of our hearts, that by thy brightness we may know thee to be the true God and everlasting light, living and reigning for ever and ever. Amen.

The Minister lights the candles and after it recites the following blessings
Blessed art thou, O Eternal, our God, King of the universe, who hath sanctified us with his commandments and hath commanded us to kindle the (Shabbat and) Yom Kippur light.

Blessed art thou, O Eternal, our God, King of the universe, who hath given us the light of the world in Yeshua the Messiah.

Blessed art thou, O Eternal, our God, King of the universe, who hath kept us alive, sustained us, and brought us to this season.

After a short moment of silence the congregation sings the following hymn [Phos hilaron, from the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer, p. 64, adapted]
O gracious light,
Pure brightness of the everliving Father in heaven,
O Yeshua Messiah, holy and blessed.

Now as we come to the setting of the sun,
And our eyes behold the light of (Shabbat and) Yom Kippur,
We sing thy praises O God our Father, the Lord God of Israel

Thou art worthy to be praised by happy voices,
O Eternal, our God, O giver of life,
And to be glorified through all the worlds.

Then follows a selection of the Psalter. Each Psalm is concluded by the doxology verse: «Glory be to thee, O Eternal, the Lord-God of Israel; as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be: world without end. Amen». Preferably one bows during the first half of this verse and straightens up at: «As it was…»

Minister       O Lord, open thou our lips.
People         And our mouth shall shew forth thy praise.
Minister       O God, make speed to save us.
People         O Lord, make haste to help us
Minister       Glory be to thee, O Eternal, the Lord-God of Israel
People         As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be: world without end. Amen

Hymn
[Hymns Ancient & Modern 14 SE, 15 FS, Adapted.]
O Deity, most blessed Light,
O Unity of primal might,
As now the fiery sun departs,
Shed thou thy beams within our hearts.

To thee our morning song of praise,
To thee our evening prayer we raise;
Thee may our souls for evermore
In lowly reverence adore.

Bow at the concluding stanza:
Almighty Father, hear our cry
Through thine only Son our Lord most high,
Who by the Holy Ghost with thee
Doth live and reign eternally

The Lesson is read
Reader         The Lord be with you
People         And with thy spirit
Reader         A lesson from the (Second) Book of the Chronicles (II Chronicles 6:13-42)

13 [For] Solomon had made a brasen scaffold of five cubits long, and five cubits broad, and three cubits high, and had set it in the midst of the court: and upon it he stood, and kneeled down upon his knees before all the congregation of Israel, and spread forth his hands toward heaven. 14 And said, O Lord God of Israel, there is no God like thee in the heaven, nor in the earth; which keepest covenant, and shewest mercy unto thy servants, that walk before thee with all their hearts: 15 Thou which hast kept with thy servant David my father that which thou hast promised him; and spakest with thy mouth, and hast fulfilled it with thine hand, as it is this day. 16 Now therefore, O Lord God of Israel, keep with thy servant David my father that which thou hast promised him, saying, There shall not fail thee a man in my sight to sit upon the throne of Israel; yet so that thy children take heed to their way to walk in my law, as thou hast walked before me. 17 Now then, O Lord God of Israel, let thy word be verified, which thou hast spoken unto thy servant David. 18 But will God in very deed dwell with men on the earth? behold, heaven and the heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house which I have built! 19 Have respect therefore to the prayer of thy servant, and to his supplication, O Eternal my God, to hearken unto the cry and the prayer which thy servant prayeth before thee: 20 That thine eyes may be open upon this house day and night, upon the place whereof thou hast said that thou wouldest put thy name there; to hearken unto the prayer which thy servant prayeth toward this place. 21 Hearken therefore unto the supplications of thy servant, and of thy people Israel, which they shall make toward this place: hear thou from thy dwelling place, even from heaven; and when thou hearest, forgive. 22 If a man sin against his neighbour, and an oath be laid upon him to make him swear, and the oath come before thine altar in this house; 23 Then hear thou from heaven, and do, and judge thy servants, by requiting the wicked, by recompensing his way upon his own head; and by justifying the righteous, by giving him according to his righteousness. 24 And if thy people Israel be put to the worse before the enemy, because they have sinned against thee; and shall return and confess thy name, and pray and make supplication before thee in this house; 25 Then hear thou from the heavens, and forgive the sin of thy people Israel, and bring them again unto the land which thou gavest to them and to their fathers. 26 When the heaven is shut up, and there is no rain, because they have sinned against thee; yet if they pray toward this place, and confess thy name, and turn from their sin, when thou dost afflict them; 27 Then hear thou from heaven, and forgive the sin of thy servants, and of thy people Israel, when thou hast taught them the good way, wherein they should walk; and send rain upon thy land, which thou hast given unto thy people for an inheritance. 28 If there be dearth in the land, if there be pestilence, if there be blasting, or mildew, locusts, or caterpillers; if their enemies besiege them in the cities of their land; whatsoever sore or whatsoever sickness there be: 29 Then what prayer or what supplication soever shall be made of any man, or of all thy people Israel, when every one shall know his own sore and his own grief, and shall spread forth his hands in this house: 30 Then hear thou from heaven thy dwelling place, and forgive, and render unto every man according unto all his ways, whose heart thou knowest; (for thou only knowest the hearts of the children of men:) 31 That they may fear thee, to walk in thy ways, so long as they live in the land which thou gavest unto our fathers. 32 Moreover concerning the stranger, which is not of thy people Israel, but is come from a far country for thy great name’s sake, and thy mighty hand, and thy stretched out arm; if they come and pray toward this house; 33 Then hear thou from the heavens, even from thy dwelling place, and do according to all that the stranger calleth to thee for; that all people of the earth may know thy name, and fear thee, as doth thy people Israel, and may know that this house which I have built is called by thy name. 34 If thy people go out to war against their enemies by the way that thou shalt send them, and they pray unto thee toward this city which thou hast chosen, and the house which I have built for thy name; 35 Then hear thou from the heavens their prayer and their supplication, and maintain their cause. 36 If they sin against thee, (for there is no man which sinneth not,) and thou be angry with them, and deliver them over before their enemies, and they carry them away captives unto a land far off or near; 37 Yet if they bethink themselves in the land whither they are carried captive, and turn and pray unto thee in the land of their captivity, saying, We have sinned, we have done amiss, and have dealt wickedly; 38 If they return to thee with all their heart and with all their soul in the land of their captivity, whither they have carried them captives, and pray toward their land, which thou gavest unto their fathers, and toward the city which thou hast chosen, and toward the house which I have built for thy name: 39 Then hear thou from the heavens, even from thy dwelling place, their prayer and their supplications, and maintain their cause, and forgive thy people which have sinned against thee. 40 Now, my God, let, I beseech thee, thine eyes be open, and let thine ears be attent unto the prayer that is made in this place. 41 Now therefore arise, O Lord God, into thy resting place, thou, and the ark of thy strength: let thy priests, O Lord God, be clothed with salvation, and let thy saints rejoice in goodness. 42 O Lord God, turn not away the face of thine anointed: remember the mercies of David thy servant.

After the Lesson:
Reader         This is the word of the Lord
People         Thanks be to God

As a response to the lesson the following Psalm is sung:

Psalm 20. Exaudiat te Dominus

The Eternal hear thee in the day of trouble : the Name of the God of Jacob defend thee;
2. Send thee help from the sanctuary : and strengthen thee out of Sion;
3. Remember all thy offerings : and accept thy burnt-sacrifice;
4. Grant thee thy heart’s desire : and fulfil all thy mind.
5. We will rejoice in thy salvation, and triumph in the Name of the Lord our God : the Eternal perform all thy petitions.
6. Now know I that the Eternal helpeth his Anointed, and will hear him from his holy heaven : even with the wholesome strength of his right hand.
7. Some put their trust in chariots, and some in horses : but we will remember the Name of the Eternal our God.
8. They are brought down, and fallen : but we are risen, and stand upright.
9. Save, O Eternal, and hear us, O King of heaven : when we call upon thee.
Doxology: Glory be to thee, O Eternal, the Lord-God of Israel : As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

If Yom Kippur coincides with the weekly Sabbath, Psalm 92, the Sabbath Psalm, is sung. If Yom Kippur falls on another day Psalm 92 is omitted.

Psalm 92. Bonum est confiteri

It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord : and to sing praises unto thy Name, O most Highest;
2. To tell of thy loving-kindness early in the morning : and of thy truth in the night-season;
3. Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the lute : upon a loud instrument, and upon the harp.
4. For thou, Lord, hast made me glad through thy works : and I will rejoice in giving praise for the operations of thy hands.
5. O Lord, how glorious are thy works : thy thoughts are very deep.
6. An unwise man doth not well consider this : and a fool doth not understand it.
7. When the ungodly are green as the grass, and when all the workers of wickedness do flourish : then shall they be destroyed for ever; but thou, Lord, art the most Highest for evermore.
8. For lo, thine enemies, O Lord, lo, thine enemies shall perish : and all the workers of wickedness shall be destroyed.
9. But mine horn shall be exalted like the horn of an unicorn : for I am anointed with fresh oil.
10. Mine eye also shall see his lust of mine enemies : and mine ear shall hear his desire of the wicked that arise up against me.
11. The righteous shall flourish like a palm-tree : and shall spread abroad like a cedar in Libanus.
12. Such as are planted in the house of the Lord : shall flourish in the courts of the house of our God.
13. They also shall bring forth more fruit in their age : and shall be fat and well-liking.
14. That they may shew how true the Lord my strength is : and that there is no unrighteousness in him.
Doxology: Glory be to Thee, O Eternal, the Lord-God of Israel : As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Psalm 93. Dominus regnavit

The Lord is King, and hath put on glorious apparel : the Lord hath put on his apparel, and girded himself with strength.
2. He hath made the round world so sure : that it cannot be moved.
3. Ever since the world began hath thy seat been prepared : thou art from everlasting.
4. The floods are risen, O Lord, the floods have lift up their voice : the floods lift up their waves.
5. The waves of the sea are mighty, and rage horribly : but yet the Lord, who dwelleth on high, is mightier.
6. Thy testimonies, O Lord, are very sure : holiness becometh thine house for ever.
Doxology: Glory be to Thee, O Eternal, the Lord-God of Israel : As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Immediately after Psalm 93 and without introductory invitation the Minster proceeds to the following Collects[adapted versions from the Episcopal Prayer Book]

Blessed art thou, O Eternal our God, God of fathers, Creator of the changes of day and night, giving [the/a] Sabbath of rest and bestowing upon us occasions of solemn song in the evening. As thou hast protected us in the day that is past, so be with us in the coming night; keep us from every sin, every evil, and every fear; for thou art our light and salvation, and the strength of our life. To thee be glory for endless ages. Amen.

The following Collect is only said on Friday evening
Almighty, everlasting God, let our prayer in thy sight be as incense, the lifting up of our hands as the evening sacrifice. Give us grace to behold thee, present in thy Word and Sacraments, and to recognize thee in the lives of those around us. Stir up in us the flame of that love which burned in the heart of thy Son as he bore his Passion, and let it burn in us to everlasting life and to the ages of ages. Amen.

Be present, be present, O Lord Yeshua, our great High Priest, as thou werest present with thy talmidim; thou who livest and reignest with the Father in the unity of the Ruach HaKodesh, world without end. Amen.

O God and Father of all, whom the whole heavens adore: Let the whole earth also worship thee, all nations obey thee, all tongues confess and bless thee, and men and women everywhere love thee and serve thee in peace; through Yeshua the Messiah our Lord. Amen.

Half Kaddish
Magnified and sanctified be his great name in the world which he hath created according to his will. May he establish his kingdom during your life and during your days, and during the life of all the house of Israel, even speedily and at a near time, and say ye, Amen.
(Cong. — Amen. Let his great name be blessed for ever and to all eternity.)
Blessed, praised and glorified, exalted, extolled and honored, magnified and lauded be the name of the Holy One, blessed be he (Cong. — Blessed be he exceedingly) though he be high above all the blessings and hymns, praises and consolations, which are uttered in the world, through Yeshua the Messiah; and say ye, Amen. (Cong. — Amen.)

Then shall the Minister, and the people with him, say the Lord’s Prayer.
Our Father, which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, in earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive them that trespass against us; And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. Amen.

Minister:      O Lord, deal not with us after our sins.
Answer:       Neither reward us after our iniquities.
Let us pray.
O God, merciful Father, that despisest not  the sighing of a contrite heart, nor the desire of such as be sorrowful: Mercifully assist our prayers that we make before thee in all our troubles and adversities, whensoever they oppress us; and graciously hear us, that those evils, which the craft and subtilty of the devil or man worketh against us, be brought to nought, and by the providence of thy goodness they may be dispersed; that we thy servants, being hurt by no persecutions, may evermore give thanks unto thee in thy holy Assembly; through Yeshua the Messiah our Lord.
O Lord, arise, help us, and deliver us for thy Name’s sake.

O God, we have heard with our ears, and our fathers have declared unto us, the noble works that thou didst in their days, and in the old time before them.
O Lord, arise, help us, and deliver us for thine honour.
Glory be to thee, O Eternal, the Lord-God of Israel;
Answer: As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without end. Amen.

From our enemies defend us, O Messiah.
Graciously look upon our afflictions.
Pitifully behold the sorrows of our hearts.
Mercifully forgive the sins of thy people.
Favourably with mercy hear our prayers.
O Son of David, have mercy upon us.
Both now and ever vouchsafe to hear us, O Messiah.
Graciously hear us, O Messiah; graciously hear us, O Lord Messiah.

Minister:      O Lord, let thy mercy be shewed upon us;
Answer:       As we do put our trust in thee.

Let us pray.
We humbly beseech thee, O Father, mercifully to look upon our infirmities; and for the glory of thy Name turn from us all those evils that we most righteously have deserved; and grant that in all our troubles we may put our whole trust and confidence in thy mercy, and evermore serve thee in holiness and pureness of living, to thy honour and glory; through our only Mediator and Advocate, Yeshua the Messiah our Lord. Amen.

Almighty God, who hast given us grace at  this time with one accord to make our common supplications unto thee; and dost promise that when two or three are gathered together in thy Name thou wilt grant their requests: Fulfil now, O Lord, the desires and petitions of thy servants, as may be most expedient for them; granting us in this world knowledge of thy truth, and in the world to come life everlasting. Amen.

Mourner’s Kaddish
Magnified and sanctified be his great name in the world which he hath created according to his will. May he establish his kingdom during your life and during your days, and during the life of all the house of Israel, even speedily and at a near time, and say ye, Amen.
(Cong. — Amen. Let his great name be blessed for ever and to all eternity.)
Blessed, praised and glorified, exalted, extolled and honored, magnified and lauded be the name of the Holy One, blessed be he (Cong. — Blessed be he exceedingly) though he be high above all the blessings and hymns, praises and consolations, which are uttered in the world, through Yeshua the Messiah; and say ye, Amen. (Cong. — Amen.)
May there be abundant peace from heaven, and life for us and for all Israel, through the same Yeshua the Messiah; and say ye, Amen. (Cong. — Amen.)

Take three steps backward. Bow to the left and and say: “He who maketh peace…”; bow to the right and say: “may he in his mercy…”; bow forward and say: “and for all Israel…” After waiting for a short while in standing position take three steps forward.

He who maketh peace in his high places, may he make peace for us and for all Israel, through the same Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord; and say ye, Amen. (Cong. — Amen.)


Then follows the
Maariv service for Yom Kippur.

    Todah Raba! for providing Kol Nidrei service online. I hope there are other high holiday services for those of us shut in or without a congregation nearby. May haMashiach bless you as you minister to others tenfold.

    Since my vision isn’t too good . I wish it were on audio even better on video.

    Thank you. We are working here on a long-time project of developing a complete Siddur. From time to time we’ll publish parts of it.
