The Secret Tefillah of Drinking b'Kedusah

Below is the secret tefillah of drinking b'kedusah on Purim. It is said that it's a prayer handed down from the Baal Shem Tov, and was shared by HaRav Shalom Arush, shlita, of Yeshiva Chut Chesed in Meah Shearim, Jerusalem.

It says it is to be said before every cup of drink...


  1. it seems you cant keep a secret!

  2. excellent.

    not only does the tefillah cause one to focus on the right ideas when drinking, and knowing one's limits, but having to say such a mouthful every time one drinks would seriously curb the amount of drinking.


  3. Can some kind soul translate this for those of us who are Hebrew-challenged?

  4. anonymous: maybe it would be worth taking a little course in Hebrew, in appreciation that this is Hashem's Holy Tongue.
