|When we eat, it's natural to show our gratitude--and it's never been easier to give thanks in the traditional words of prayer. This book includes kiddush for Shabbat and festivals with complete instructions for what to do at home, from washing the hands to blessing the children; Grace after Meals, with a full Singlish translation so that everyone can join in; selected songs, including zemirot and chasidic nigunim that everyone can enjoy; and our exclusive three-column format, with contemporary English translation side-by-side with the complete Hebrew text and transliteration.
Each year our prayer communities read five short books of Jewish scripture: Kohelet or Ecclesiastes; Ester or the Book of Esther; Shir HaShirim or the Song of Songs; Rut or the Book of Ruth; and Eicha or Lamentations. The poetic Hebrew can be difficult to follow, especially when an expert chants the book. So we have set the Hebrew in convenient phrases with a line-by-line English translation and full transliteration. Extensive footnotes explain difficulties in the text or translation.

festivals, book includes the complete cycle of services, morning, afternoon and evening. This book has all the features that make our books easy to use. Prayers are fully transliterated; we honor the Four
Mothers wherever we honor the Forefathers. And we avoid assigning gender to God. What's more, we show how and when the congregation should respond, stand, sit, or bow; and we distinguish Tanach quotations from other parts of prayer. From weekday Tachanun to festival poems such as Berach Dodi and Akdamut Milin, all the difficult parts are fully translated and transliterated.
