All glosses marked with a footnote are described below. For an explanation of other glossing symbols used, see Explanation of glossing used.
1. This service is found in Stern, C. (ed., 1994), Gates of Prayer for Shabbat and weekdays: A gender sensitive prayerbook. New York: Central Conference of American Rabbis. All page numbers refer to this edition.
2. 3. 4. 5. 6.
2.(Recited in Hebrew and repeated in English:) - This prayer book divides the service into many short portions. They are recited first in Hebrew, and then repeated in English.
3.The signs "||:" and ":||" show where the various repetitions begin and end. You may be tempted to simply not interpret when the Hebrew is being spoken and use this translation when the English is said. This probably won't work very well because there are some rather long portions where you will be standing silent. This looks rather unaesthetic to me, especially when portions are being sung, and then merely spoken afterwards in English translation. Better to interpret the Hebrew and be silent for the English, if you must.
4.YOU - Underlined words are honorific indices ("indexes"), using the FT of the upturned palm to indicate who is being honored.
5.GIFT-TO-us - (2h)[X], POs ><, FOs up, hands tip back towards signer to show that something is given as a gift.
6.HOLY - H-CLEAN. For a QuickTime file of this sign, see ASL Pro: Holy - 1.
7. LOYAL - [L], PO > signer, FO > NDS, circles at NDS pec and lands.
8.TORAH - (2h)[S], POs up, twist twice while separating, as if unrolling a scroll. For a QuickTime file of this sign, see ASL Pro. Click "T" under the field labeled "Religious Signs", then scroll down the vocabulary entries to "Torah" and click.
9. UPRIGHT - Elbow of [S], PO > NDS, FO up, is struck against the fingers of NDH [B] held like part of TABLE.
10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18.
10.HELP US AVOID. . . Italicized text shows that the congregation is supposed to say this part, just as shown in the prayer book this translates. The congregation usually does not say the Hebrew parts.
11.JOY - (1) alt.HAPPY. (2) EXCITED. (3) J-EXCITED.
12.FOUNDATION - NDH [S], PO > signer, FO > DS, is held out with arm parallel to the chest and DH [S], PO > signer, strikes hand from below and then strikes elbow from below.
13.RULE - CONTROL.
14.UNIVERSE - U-WORLD.
15.MITZVOT - Plural of "mitzvah" which means commandment or good deed: MITZVAH - (1) M-DO (antisymmetric). (2) C-LAW. You can pluralize these by repetition.
16.LIGHT-CANDLE - (2h)[bX], DH strikes NDH like a match, and then DH moves up to the candle as if lighting it + CANDLE moves > DS.
17.SHABBAT - The DH [F], PO down, descends between NDH [B], PO down, at the wrist area and the body, then moves away from the body and rises up while changing to [S], PO down.
