Rosh Hashana Prayers: First Blessing of Amidah: First Night

“We Choose to expand Your Presence in the world, God, our Lord, and Lord of our Ancestors, the Lord of Abraham, the Lord of Isaac, and the Lord of Jacob.” The Zichronot, or Remembrances of Rosh Hashana, are so real that we are able to connect with the spiritual accomplishments of the Avot, as on no other day of the year. The remembrance of the Patriarchs gives their merit extra life on Rosh Hashana.

We begin the Amidah by reconnecting to their merit, not as something in the past, but as something alive to us at this very moment.
