ונתנה תקף קדשת היום


A legend says he received the words in a dream, however the poem (פיוט) , song and prayer  ונתנה תקף according tradition was composed by R. Kalonimos ben Meshulam (קלונימוס בן משולם)  from Mainz who died some 915 years ago, obviously using older parts The piut “netane tokef kedusha hayom” (Let’s confirm the holiness of today) is one of the most popular prayers of Rosh ha-Shana and Yom Kipur services and one of the few recited on both holidays, said (or sung) at the beginning of the mussaf of the prayer.
