  JewishEncyclopedia.com - LITURGY:
The liturgy for the fast was developed long before the common era, and it is highly probable not only that it was evolved independently of the Temple, but that it influenced the beginnings of the daily form of worship.
Prayers for weekdays, Sabbaths, and fast-days, the liturgy for fastdays, and grace before and after meals, as well as all kinds of benedictions and prayers of thanksgiving, have retained the same fixed form to the present day, and may, therefore, be discussed in some detail here, together with their historical development.
After the "Shema'" the Jewish ritual placed the "salvation benediction" ("ge'ullah"); and Christian circles, in harmony with folk-beliefs, derived from this benediction various prayers for deliverance from the persecutions of the devil.

  Liturgy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A liturgy comprises a prescribed ceremony, according to the traditions of a particular group or event.
In the Christian church, liturgical churches are those that use a well-defined liturgy dating to the second century and earlier, in which many of the words and music used follow basic patterns each time the service is conducted.
At Athens, the Assembly assigned liturgies to the wealthy, and there was a law by which any man who had been assigned a liturgy while a richer man had had none could challenge him either to undertake the liturgy or to exchange property with him.

 MyJewishLearning.com - Texts: Overview: What is Jewish Liturgy
Liturgy is not just the words that are recited, whether fixed or spontaneous, it also includes the actions, the occasions for the worship, and the gathering of the participants.
The basic challenge of liturgy is that, on the one hand, we expect conversation with God to be intimate and real and spontaneous, as one might speak with a parent; on the other hand, we approach God with the images of royalty, and royalty has a defined protocol.
Jewish law defines a requirement of three daily prayers with set liturgies, and it is very difficult to be spontaneous on a schedule with a familiar text.

 Jewish Liturgy
The next major development in Jewish prayer occurred during the Babylonian Exile, 6th century B.C.E. People were not able to sacrifice in the Temple at that time, so they used prayer as a substitute for sacrifice.
It is also referred to as the Amidah (standing, because we stand while we recite it), or Tefilah (prayer, as in The Prayer, because it is the essence of all Jewish prayer).
The Torah and haftarah readings are performed with great ceremony: the Torah is paraded around the room before it is brought to rest on the bimah (podium), and it is considered an honor to have the opportunity to recite a blessing over the reading (this honor is called an aliyah).

 Jewish Liturgy: The Siddur and the Mahzor
While the roots of Jewish prayer can be found in the Hebrew Bible, the fundamentals of the synagogue service as we know it today were initially described in the rabbinic literature of the first centuries of the common era.
The Siddur (containing the daily and Shabbat prayers) and the Mahzor (containing holiday prayers), did not emerge as separate texts and as compendia of Jewish liturgy until the period of the Geonim, the heads of rabbinic academies in Babylonia in the early Middle Ages.
Immigrant Jews brought their local liturgies with them, but many of these rites did not survive as it became impossible for each group to maintain a separate synagogue in each community.

At ecumenical meetings, the liturgy of the Word will be shared by wor-ship leaders (officiants) of several traditions, while the liturgy of the eucharist will associate as assistants of the principal celebrant those authorized by their own church to concelebrate on such occasions.
The liturgy of the Eucharist begins with the presentation of the bread and wine, accompanied by two benedictions from the Jewish liturgy (also used in the revised Roman Catholic liturgy), and by a prayer inspired by the Didache.
The blessing of the bread and the cup is accompanied, as in the Jewish liturgy, the passover meal in particular, by thanksgiving.

For both Jews and Christians Sacred Scripture is an essential part of their respective liturgies: in the proclamation of the Word of God, the response to this word, prayer of praise and intercession for the living and the dead, invocation of God's mercy.
The Liturgy of the Hours and other liturgical texts and formularies, as well as those of our most venerable prayers, including the Lord's Prayer, have parallels in Jewish prayer.
The relationship between Jewish liturgy and Christian liturgy, but also their differences in content, are particularly evident in the great feasts of the liturgical year, such as Passover.

In Jewish tradition, the nullification of vows can only be performed a religious court, which always consists of at least three judges and is convened only on weekdays.
Although all Jewish sources and interpretations of Kol Nidrei agree that the formula covers only vows between the individual and God, many anti-Semites have taken Kol Nidrei as evidence that a Jew's oath is worthless.
The source of the melody is still a subject of research, and the frequent attempts to relate it to the Sephardi traditions have not been successful.

 Dead Sea Scrolls Conference Abstract: Nitzan
The liturgical scrolls from Qumran containing fixed statutory prayer are the earliest written testimony of fixed Jewish liturgy held during the Second Temple period, and possibly in Judaism.
Although the Qumran community seceded from the mainstream Jewish congregation, its statutory prayers do not include sectarian ideas, apart from the controversial calendrical system, whose influence is prominent in the liturgical system of Qumran.
Comparison between the liturgical motifs of Sabbath, festivals and weekdays in Qumran liturgy and biblical and apocryphal literature, on the one hand, and of Rabbinic liturgy, on the other, reflects the common tradition regarding themes and ideas that became the common tradition of all Jewish congregations and generations from the Second Temple period.

 Jewish Liturgy / Torah 101 / Mechon Mamre
Undoubtedly our oldest fixed daily prayer is the Shema.  This consists of Deuteronomy 6,4-9, Deuteronomy 11,13-21, and Numbers 15,37-41.  Note that the first paragraph commands us to speak of these matters "when you retire and when you arise".  From ancient times, this commandment was fulfilled by reciting the Shema twice a day:  morning and night.
Many holidays have special additions to the liturgy.  See Yom Kippur Liturgy for additions related to that holiday.
In Orthodox, the person leading the service has his back to the congregation, and prays facing the same direction as the congregation; in Conservative and Reform, the person leading the service faces the congregation.

One of the great heroes of the Jewish tradition is David, who was not only a King, but a good musician and songwriter (something said of no other ancient Jewish hero).
Indeed, it appears that Jewish worship in ancient times, and Christian worship to this day, has been a prime generator of musical styles and forms and instruments.
These new kinds of music worked their way into the world at large, giving it great joy, expressing deep sadness, touching people in a way that can only be described as 'spiritual'.

 WHAT'S NEW -AND NOT SO NEW- IN MESSIANIC JUDAICA
Many Messianic Jewish congregations appear to have come, or are coming to the realization that Messianic Jewish worship should be structured in an authentically Jewish manner.
Responsive sections of the liturgy are usually clearly designated in the translation and/or transliteration, but not with the Hebrew.
One reason for this may relate to varying minhagim, such as is the case with the Kaddish, which some congregations recite responsively and some recite in unison.
