Festival Prayer: Lechem Rav: Mipnei haYad



“We cannot ascend to a peer and to prostrate ourselves before You, and to perform our obligations in the House of Your choice, in the great and holy House upon which Your Name was proclaimed, because of the hand that was dispatched against Your Sanctuary.” This refers specifically to the hand that is mentioned in the battle against Amalek; the hand that rests on gods throne while Is Name is incomplete as long as that evil exists in the world. That hand went out against His House, the House of His Name, because we did not go out and fight to destroy evil in the world. This prayer is our statement of commitment to battle evil so that the House that bears His Name can be restored and complete. (Lechem Rav)
