- ATTAH ZOKHER
- ATTAH ZOKHER (Heb. אַתָּה זוֹכֵר; "Thou rememberest"), opening words of the zikhronot section of the Additional Service of rosh ha-shanah . This prayer is designated as "Teki'ata de-Vei Rav," since its authorship is ascribed to the third century C.E. Babylonian amora rav . The prayer starts by emphasizing the character of Rosh Ha-Shanah as a "Day of Remembrance" from Creation onward. Ten verses from Scripture are quoted describing God as remembering His creatures, especially Israel. The prayer closes with the benediction: "Blessed art Thou, O Lord, who rememberest the Covenant." -BIBLIOGRAPHY: Davidson, Oẓar, 1 (1924), 398.
