Blessings | Daily Amharic Bereket & Hebrew Berachot

Ethiopian-Hebrew RasTafari tradition requires that we personally bless the LORD for each detail of our daily experience. Such a requirement — if not practiced legalistically — surely points to a deep inward appreciation for the good things God personally provides for us throughout each day. These sample Amharic-Hebrew blessings vocalize our gratitude to God for His daily provision and care:

Sabbath Blessing |Senbet Bereket|Shabbat Berachot

Senbet-Shabbat begins at sunset on Friday evening and ends Saturday night when three stars are visible in the sky. On Shabbat Jews remember that God created the world and then rested from His labors. Shabbat is considered the most important of the Jewish holidays — even more important than Yom Kippur or the other High Holidays. This is a special day to be marked by three qualities: rest (menuchah), holiness (kedushah), and joy (oneg).

Messianic Bereket-Berachot
Messianic blessings are recited in Amharic-Hebrew with the intent of remaining true to the Ethiopian-Hebrew identity of Yeshua as the Mashiach of Israel and Savior of the world. Often these blessings are found in various Messianic Siddurim (prayer books), though (unlike traditional Judaism) there is no consensus on each individual blessing’s content. Nonethess, reciting these blessings with the appropriate kavannah (intention) can often help express the heart of those who identify themselves as Jewish believers in Jesus.
