The Prayers of Our Forefathers
The daily prayers were instituted by our
forefathers. Avraham instituted the morning
prayer, as the verse says, “Avraham arose
early to stand at the place in which he had
earlier stood [in prayer] before Hashem”
(Bereishit 19:27). Yitzchak instituted the
afternoon prayer and Yakov instituted the
evening prayer (Berachos 26b).
Our Sages tell us that the three prayers of
the day were established by our three
forefathers. Although the exact wording of
our prayers is clearly a later institution, it is
reasonable to assume that it was composed
with this point in mind. We may expect the
life history and accomplishments of each
forefather to be reflected in “his” prayer.
Although the keynote of our services, the
Shemoneh Esreh, is nearly identical in all
three of the daily prayers, nevertheless the
introductory prayers which precede the
Shemoneh Esreh vary greatly from one prayer
to the other. It is in these that we would
expect to find an allusion to the patron of that
particular prayer. Let us search the daily
prayers for such allusions.
The first prayer of the day is Shacharit, or
the morning prayers. The poem “Adon Olam”
plays a prominent part among the opening
words of Shacharit. It has been suggested that
this is associated with the teaching of the
Gemara in Berachot (7b), “From the day
Hashem created the world, no one ever called
Him ‘Master’ (Adon), until Avraham came
and called Him ‘Master’ ” (Bereishit 15:8).
Avraham was the one who taught the people
of the world that they are not free to do as
they please; there is a Master up above to
Whom we must hearken. Since Avraham
instituted the morning prayer, we mention his
most important teaching at the very beginning
of this prayer. (Tikun Tefilah in Otzar
ha’Tefilos citing the Vilna Gaon; introduction
to Koheles Yitzchak on the Torah, citing a
student of the Vilna Gaon; see also Sidur
Sha’ar ha’Rachamim, written by Rav Pinchas
of Polotzk, student of the Vilna Gaon, for a
similar approach.)
We end the introductory Psalms of the
morning
services
with
the
prayer
“Yishtabach.” In at least some versions
(Sephardi;
Kabbalistic/Nusach
Sefard),
Yishtabach ends with five consecutive
phrases, the acrostic of which spells out
“Avraham!” This was undoubtedly instituted
for the same reason.
Parshas Vayera
Twice a day, in the morning and the
evening, we precede the Shemoneh Esreh
prayer with the recital of the verses of the
Shema. This is a 
particularly appropriate
introduction for the prayers of Avraham and
Yakov.
The Shema has two motifs: (1) accepting
upon ourselves Hashem’s sovereignty
(Mishnah, Berachot 13a), and (2) accepting
upon ourselves to learn Hashem’s Torah
(Gemara, Berachot 14b). These two themes
correspond exactly to the primary teachings of
Avraham and Yakov. Avraham taught the
world that Hashem is the Master of all
Creation and that it is He Whom we must
serve (Rashi Bereishit 12:5; 21:33). The
morning Shema ushers in Avraham’s prayer
by emphasizing this theme. Yakov’s life was
dominated by the study of Torah (Rashi
Bereishit 25:27; 28:9, 11). We therefore
introduce his prayer with Shema as well, this
time because of the other theme of Shema.
It is also interesting to note that in Shema
we call on “Yisrael” to hear our proclamation
that Hashem is One — “Hear O Israel
[Yisrael]!” The name “Yisrael,” besides
referring to the collective Jewish population,
is used to refer to both Yakov (Bereishit
35:10) and Avraham (the first Israelite;
compare Tehilim 105:7 with Divrei Hayamim
I 16:13).
The blessings that surround the Shema in
both the morning and evening prayers may
also be interpreted as specific to Avraham and
Yakov. In the morning, we precede the Shema
with two blessings: one an ode to the Divine
force driving what we call “nature,” and
another blessing Hashem for lovingly
choosing Israel from among the other nations.
The first is easily associated with Avraham,
for it was through Avraham’s contemplation
of nature that he came to recognize the Hand
of Hashem in this world (Midrash Raba,
beginning of Lech Lecha). The second
certainly applies to Avraham, for it was he
that Hashem lovingly chose from all the
nations of the world (as worded in Nechemya
9:7, “Asher Bacharta”). After Shema we bless
Hashem for redeeming Israel — which,
specific to Avraham, may be alluding to
Avraham’s miraculous salvation from
imminent death first at the hands of Nimrod
and later at the hands of the warring kings
(Rashi Bereishit 18:27).
In the evening, we introduce the Shema
with two blessings, the first over the day/night
cycle and the second over the study of the
Torah and Hashem’s love for His people. The
first is appropriate for Yakov, since Hashem
altered the daily cycle for him, letting the sun
set early at one point, and having it set late for
him at another point (Rashi Bereishit 28:11;
32:32). In this manner Hashem demonstrated
specifically to Yakov His dominion over the
cycle of day and night, and it is thus
appropriate during the prayer of Yakov to
offer recognition to Hashem for his control
over this cycle. The second blessing certainly
is specific for Yakov, for he exemplified the
study of Torah (as mentioned above) and
Hashem singled Yakov out to express to him
His love (Malachi 1:2).
After Shema, we first bless Hashem for
redeeming Yisrael. Since we find that Hashem
“redeemed” Yakov (Yeshayah 44:23), and
that Yakov’s second name was Yisrael, the
blessing clearly may be referring to the
experiences of our forefather Yakov. Next, we
bless Hashem for protecting us and spreading
His protective tent over Yisrael. This may be
alluding to the incident in which Hashem
prevented the hostile Canaanite nations from
chasing or harming Yakov (Bereishit 35:5).
Finally, the afternoon prayer was instituted
by Yitzchak. Before beginning the afternoon
Shemoneh Esreh, we recite a chapter from
Psalms (Tehilim 145). According to the
Talmud (Berachot 4b), what makes this
particular chapter unique is the fact that it
thanks Hashem for providing sustenance to all
creatures. Yitzchak, even more than the other
forefathers, saw that material wealth does not
stem from one’s physical efforts, but rather
the Hand of Hashem directly provides us with
all of our needs. Hashem granted Yitzchak
wealth well beyond the physical efforts he put
into earning it (Bereishit 26:12, 13 and Rashi).
When Yitzchak went to pray his afternoon
prayer (Bereishit 24:63), Avraham had sent
his slave Eliezer to find Yitzchak an
appropriate mate. As some commentaries
explain, Yitzchak was apparently going to
pray for the success of the slave’s mission. No
sooner did he begin to pray, than he lifted his
eyes and saw that they were answered! Eliezer
was returning successfully with Yitzchak’s
wife-to-be, Rivkah (ibid.). In a similar
manner, we are told that one should take care
to concentrate during the afternoon prayers
(even though they are prayed when one is
weary, immediately after a day of work),
since they are sure to be answered (Berachot
6b). On Shabbat, we refer to the afternoon
prayers as “prayers in a time of Hashem’s
goodwill.” Perhaps the power of Yitzchak’s
original afternoon prayer imbued these
prayers with their unique potency.
May Hashem answer all of our prayers, in
the merit of our saintly forefathers!

Focus on Chesed Used Book Sale
Keep a Daily Notebook, Make a Daily Entry
As we move into the last phase of this year’s Focus on Chesed, you
can focus on chesed by setting aside a notebook and entering one act
of chesed you did each day. This can be a chesed for someone inside
Mincha/Maariv
or outside your family.
Yaakov Goldman has designed and produced a pocket chesed
notebook (free of charge) for us to make a chesed entry each day. He
is also working on the “Ten Greatest Chesed Stories” with Rabbi
Pesach Krohn to be available soon. The first two journals to the
family are free, after that they are $1 each. They are also free via
email.
Mincha/maariv is now one hour earlier,
back to standard time. Join us this week at
4:35 pm. Mincha/maariv is followed by
“Malchus Shlomo” with Rabbi Goldberger. In
between mincha and maariv, there are five
minutes of Mesillas Yesharim by the
Ramchal.
