They recite all or part of 

The Hallel

  on

Passover, Pentecost, Feast of Tabernacles, and

Hanukkah


In Hebrew "Hallel" means...

praise-dance-4

Jewish Congregation called

Beth = House

Immanuel = God with us

The Lord who Delivers His People

a beautiful devotional about Psalm 114.

Below are words from an excerpt

from the link

https://www.shema.com/psalms-113-118-the-hallel-2671/

by Rabbi Loren -

a Messianic Jew - who believes Jesus is Messiah

Note:

A Siddur is a book with Jewish prayers and liturgy.


Before there was the Siddur, Israel had a prayer book.

It’s the book of Psalms.

In this divinely inspired prayer book,

Psalms 113-118

focus on God’s saving power and

are used during Passover, Shavuot, Sukkot and

Chanukkah to praise Him

for various aspects of His saving power.


Since we use the Hallel Psalms a lot in our prayers,

I thought I would focus our attention on them today.

Psalm 114 

praises God for being so great that He can rescue a nation

enslaved to the most powerful nation on earth, part a sea and a

river and miraculously provide water from a rock for millions of

people and their animals. 

When Israel came out of Egypt, Jacob from a people of foreign tongue, Judah became God’s sanctuary, Israel His dominion. 

God got very involved with the Chosen People during our exodus

from Egypt. He got very close to us. He took control of us.

It shouldn’t surprise us that when the Creator got close to us,

and took control over us,

creation responded in unusual ways. 

The sea looked and fled, the Jordan turned back; the mountains

leaped like rams, the hills like lambs. Why was it, sea, that you

fled? Why, Jordan, did you turn back? Why, mountains, did

you leap like rams, you hills, like lambs? 

The Red Sea parted before the people that God was close to.

Mount Sinai was shaken when the presence of the Lord

descended on it.

The Jordan River parted before us.

Don’t you want this same God close to you, ruling over you?

Imagine what might happen to your Red Seas,

to your Jordan Rivers!

The lesson to be learned:

All of the inhabitants of this planet should treat the Creator

with fear, reverence, respect.

 Tremble, Earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of

the God of Jacob, who turned the rock into a pool, the hard rock

into springs of water! 

Don’t you want this same Supreme Being,

who was able to free a nation of slaves

from their more powerful oppressors;

part a sea and river;

shake the mountains and

miraculously meet the physical needs of millions of people –

close to you, ruling over you, meeting your needs?

If so, transfer your loyalties to Him and obey Him.

End of the quotes.
