Free Download: A Prayer for Parnassah (Livelihood) – To Recite Today

When our ancestors were in the Wilderness, a month after the Exodus from Egypt, they faced atomorrow with no food. Justifiably, they asked Moshe if he had taken them into the desert to starve to death. Hashem responded that in the morning they would see that He had not forsaken them.

In the morning – and every morning for the next 40 years – there was manna waiting for them. By evening there was nothing left, and the next morning, it was there again. Can you imagine how we would feel if we went to sleep every night with empty refrigerators? There in the Wilderness, Hashem showed our ancestors that ultimately, parnassah is in His hands.

We pray for it every day – to provide for our families, to assist worthy causes, to build sturdy foundations for the future.

The Torah reading of this coming Shabbos — Parashas Beshalach — includes the chapter telling how the Jewish People in the Wilderness received manna. Many people recite the chapter daily, as a special prayer for parnassah. There is also a widespread custom to recite this chapter on the Tuesdayof the week of Beshalach, which this year is today, January 27th.

As a public service, we offer the text and interlinear translation of the chapter, from the Schottenstein Edition Interlinear Siddur. Please feel free to download it.

Weekly Free Download: Gateway to Judaism

gtjh
Last week, we introduced our new Spotlight on ArtScroll Treasures feature, where we shine the spotlight on some of the excellent classics that we’ve published in our almost forty year history. One of those treasures is an ArtScroll best-seller, Gateway to Judaism.

Gateway to Judaism is unique. It offers a distinctive blend of Jewish philosophy, Jewish law, and practical application illustrated through the experiences of “the Levy’s”, a fictional family that guides us through traditional Jewish customs, holidays, and lifecycle events.

The book addresses many fascinating and essential aspects of traditional faith and practice, including:

What are the major milestones of Jewish life? | How do we pray? | Why do we keep kosher? | Why do we put mezuzahs on doorposts? | What are the thirteen fundamentals of Jewish thought? | What is the rationale for observing the commandments of the Torah (mitzvot)? | Why is Torah study central to Jewish communal life? | How can we know the Torah is a divine document? | Why are justice, charity, kindness, and ethics such important issues amongst Jews? | Why do we have so many holidays and what do they signify? | Why do we say so many blessings (brachot)? |

This week, we’re offering the chapter about Shabbos for our free download. Save it, print it, read it, and make sure to share it with anyone who would benefit from it.
