The Musaf of Rosh HaShanah


As part of the Musaf Amidah of Rosh haShanah, it is important that people recite the sets of ten verses which relate to Rosh haShanah's major themes: Divine Monarchy, Gd's Memory of our deeds, and the Shofar. This is an essential part of one's Rosh haShanah's obligation, as it summarizes the meaning of the day.

The Talmud links the use of ten verses, specifically, to the ten statements of 'Hallel (Praise)' in Psalm 150, the ten declarations Gd used in creating the universe, and the ten Commandments at Sinai.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 591:4)

Have a great day,
