Download Prayers for Parnassa, Nekuda Tova and Chinuch
A few days ago, Rabbi Eliezer Berland, shlita, wrote a note asking Shuvu Banim to distribute his prayers to Jewish homes across the world.
Here on the website, we are trying to translate and transliterate some of the Rav’s simpler prayers for the English-speaking audience, so that our readers can download some of the Rav’s prayers straight from the website, and also download the Hebrew originals, to cut out and keep.
Today, we’re happy to share with you prayers on:
- Shefa parnassa – plentiful cash
- Chinuch yeledim – the welfare of our children
- Nekuda tova – seeing the good within everything, and everyone.
We need you!
If you speak good Hebrew, and you would be willing to donate a little time every week to translating 2-3 of Rabbi Berland’s prayers, please do get in touch with us via the comments form below – we’d be very grateful for some help to get these prayers out there.
Before he was hospitalized, Rabbi Berland explained that a great deal depends on getting these prayers out to the wider Jewish world.
If you would like to see prayers on a particular subject or topic, please also leave a comment below, and we will do our best to find an appropriate prayer that can be translated for the English-speaking public.
In the meantime, here are this week’s prayers:
