Kedusha/ L' dor Vador

This sanctification of Godís name is a combination of Isaiah 6:3, Ezekiel 3:12, Psalms 8:10 and 146:10. It is traditionally recited as a statement by the leader and a response by the congregation. The Kedushah is the third blessing of the Shemoneh Esrei. The congregation rises to extol God, with concentration on Godís holiness with the words Kadosh, Kadosh, Kadosh.
