|Part 1, Preliminary Morning Prayers.
The first preliminary morning prayer is Modeh Ahnee (I give thanks). This prayer
doesn't mention God's name and some say it while still in bed. The preliminary
morning prayers continue with the Asher YahTzahr blessing (said after going to
the bathroom), and the N'teeLaht YahDahYim blessing (said after washing of the
hands). Then a meditation is read and the blessing for putting on the Tallis is said.
The preliminary prayers continue with the songs Ah'dohn OhLahm and YeegDahl
(summary of the 13 Principles of Faith), the 15 Morning Blessings (BrahChoht),
the Ah'kehDah (binding of Isaac), the preliminary Shema Yisrael, and various
prayers relating to the temple service. The Preliminary Morning Prayers section
concludes with the Rabbi's Mourners' Kaddish.
Part 2, Verses of Praise (PsooKay D'zeeRah).
The purpose of the Verses of Praise is to prepare the worshipper for the main

Prayers and Verses of Praise sections. The Shacharit section contains the
Morning Prayer and is almost 100% transliterated. It consists of the following major
sections: Barechu, Shema Yisrael, Morning Amidah for the Sabbath, Morning
Amidah for Festivals, and Hallel.

The Torah Service is performed during the morning service for both the Shabbat
and Festivals. The service consists of the following main parts:
Taking out the Torah,
Blessing before and after rading the Law (Torah),

Y'koom PoorKahn Prayer,
Blessing for the new month,
Ashrei (Psalm 145),
Returning the Torah to the Ark, and
Yiskor (said on the last day of Passover, Shavuous, and Succoth).
Part 5, Musaf.
This section contains the Musaf (additional) prayers for the Sabbath and Festivals,
and the prayers for the conclusion of the service.
The following are included in this section: Musaf Amidah for the Sabbath,
Musaf Amidah for Festivals,
Concluding passages (KahVeh, Ayn Kehlohaynoo, talmudic selections, etc.)
