Learn more about the 3 T's of the High Holidays, Teshuva (Repentance), Tefilah (Prayer) and Tzedaka (Charity), with this post taken from our http://JewishTreats.org blog:

The 3 Ts

On Rosh Hashanah we declare: "But repentance, prayer and charity remove the evil of the decree!" In Hebrew, these constitute the 3 Ts: Teshuva, Tefilah and Tzedaka.

Teshuva (repentance) a central theme of the High Holidays, means more than just saying "sorry." Teshuva, means recognizing one's errors and making an effort not to repeat them. In many ways, teshuva is a private act because one must be introspective to recognize one's own mistakes.

Tefilah (prayer) is the acknowledgment of God as the King and Ruler of the universe. Tefilah is almost private, but not quite. It is a conversation between the person and God.

Tzedaka (charity) is a critical step necessary to reverse an evil decree simply because it constitutes an action. The performance of this mitzvah affects the person giving, the person receiving, and its benefits often extend to others as well. Tzedaka is reaching out beyond one's self, and is thus a public act.

Everything that a person does affects the world in multiple ways. It affects the person's relationship with him/herself, their relationship with the Divine and their relationship with their fellow human beings. The path to reversing the evil of the decree must therefore involve the private, the spiritual and the public spheres of our lives.

Song Lyrics:


It's Rosh Hashanah, Oh, So Happy New Year

Yeah...had some triflin' days for sure

Oh, gotta make my Soul Bigger, Not much time

Till Yom Kippur


(It's Rosh Hashanah)

Now I'm just tryin' to make my Soul Bigger (So happy new year)

And I ain't messin' it's no joke joke.

(It's Rosh Hashanah)

For 10 days I'll be a do-gooder (So happy new year)

And say I'm sorry to some folk folk ( I'm sorry)

Repent boy go 'head Repent ( I'm sorry)

Repent boy go 'head Repent ( I'm sorry)

Repent boy go 'head Repent ( I'm sorry)

Repent boy go 'head

Called my Mom

At a beauty Salon

With a brand new Mahzor

Under her under arm

She said "Shana Tova"

I said "I meant you no harm...

When all my friends came over

And we totaled your car...I'm so so- rry mom

You forgive me?"

Yeah we forgive you!

Yeah I forgive you!


18 yrs, 18yrs

She'd been livin kinda greedy yo for 18yrs

This babe was payin QVC for things she don't need

But the boy in the salon, yo he planted the seed

Now, you'll see her at the synagogue, any given Saturday

Or lookin up a charity to try to give some cash away.

Goin to the doctor got lipo with her money

Now she's building houses for the po' with her money

Walking round lookin like Michael with her money

Now she's feedin all the homeless apples with some honey, honey,honey

If you ain't no punk holla Rosh Hashana...Rosh Hashana..Yeah..

(She gives her money)

Now she longer is a gold digger (to those in need)

Cause she be givin back to folk folk

(She gives her money)

Now she's just tryin to make her soul bigger (to those in need)

And she don't care if she go broke broke (Charity)

Bestow girl go 'head Bestow (Charity)

Bestow girl go 'head Bestow (Charity)

Bestow girl go 'head Bestow (Charity)

Bestow girl go 'head

He wanted to make his soul bigger just like me

And he wanted to give back to his community

So he rounded up his homeboys and jumped in his ride

Drove up to the synagogue ... "yo come inside"

Ooooooh, It's Rosh Hashanah

So happy new year

It's Rosh Hashanah

So happy new year

Happy New Year, Happy New Year, Happy New Year, Happy New Year!

It's Rosh Hashanah

Oh, What a New Year

Hope I made the book of life for sure

Yeah, made my soul bigger

Only 8 more hours, only 8 more hours...

Till Yom Kippur!

"Gosh, I can't believe I get to do this every year...neat!"

New Year!
