ROSH HASHANAH 31-33 - Dedicated Dr. Shalom Kelman of Baltimore, MD. May the Zechus of helping thousands study the Torah provide a Refu'ah Sheleimah for his father, Dr. Herbert (Isser Chayim ben Itta Fruma) Kelman.
1. The Mishnah lists the blessings recited in the Shemoneh Esreh of Rosh Hashanah.
2. Rebbi Yochanan ben Nuri and Rebbi Akiva argue primarily about the section of Malchiyos.
3. There is a dispute about how many verses of Malchiyos, Zichronos, and Shofaros should be recited.
4. One must not recite a verse (#3) that refers to punishment.
5. The Gemara gives many examples of verses that may be used for Malchiyos, Zichronos, and Shofaros.
A BIT MORE
1. Everyone agrees that the first two blessings and the last three blessings are (basically) the same as the weekday Shemoneh Esreh.
2. Rebbi Yochanan ben Nuri: They are part of the third blessing (the blessing that speaks of Hashem's sanctity) of Shemoneh Esreh, and one does not blow the Shofar after they are recited. Rebbi Akiva: They are part of the fourth blessing (the holiness of the day), and one does blow the Shofar after they are recited.
3. Tana Kama: Ten different verses of each (Malchiyos, Zichronos, Shofaros) must be recited. Rebbi Yochanan ben Nuri: It suffices to say three verses of each.
4. One should also start with verses from the Torah, and then progress to verses from Prophets. Rebbi Yosi says that if one finished with Torah verses, he still fulfills his obligation.
5. There is a dispute about whether verses that imply Malchus, but that do not have the word "Malchus" in them, are counted. For example, Rebbi Yosi says that "Shema Yisrael..." is included, while Rebbi Yehudah says that it is not.
