*Note that on Sunday evening, December 4th, in America and the rest of the Diaspora, we begin to say "Barekh Alenu," the Sephardic elongated wintertime version of the ninth blessing, the prayer for physical sustenance, of the Weekday Amidah, with its insertion asking for rain and a good crop in the Land of Israel. We substitue this elongated version for the shorter version used during the remainder of the year. This longer version of the ninth blessing with its elaborated insertions continues to be used in all Weekday Amidah or Shemoneh-Esreh prayers for the subsequent duration of Israel's winter rainy season until Passover.
