Four Species Hallel Paragraph Six Imprimir

Hallel“What can I respond to God
for all the good He has given to make me independent?
I will lift up the cup of salvation
and I will call out in God’s Name.”

The Rekanati (Emor: “u’likachtem) teaches that the Four Species represent the Name of God. We literally hold God’s Name in our hands. (See Bet Yosef & Taz, Orach Chaim 651) Our actions, speech and thought determine the level of Presence God’s Name has in this world.

“What can I respond to God for all the good He has given to make me independent?” By being aware that I hold His Name, so to speak, in my hands, and am determined to use my actions to increase His Presence in His creation. It is thus that, “I will lift up the cup of salvation
and I will call out in God’s Name.”
