Now Available: Our new siddur for weekday services includes morning, afternoon and evening services, plus all the extras you need for Rosh Chodesh
and other special days. It's available now in hardback, 280 pages, for
$33.95 plus $5 shipping (domestic).
The Weekday Siddur
Like all of our books, this siddur is transliterated, egalitarian and non-sexist. All the prayers are fully transliterated; we honor the Four Mothers wherever we honor the Forefathers. And we avoid assuming that God is either male or female.
In our new work, we use better fonts; we clarify how and when the congregation should respond, stand, sit, or bow; we distinguish Tanach quotations from other parts of prayer; and all of this is in a key at the bottom of every page.
As with our previous books, we transliterate and translate all the Hebrew side-by-side on the same page. When Hebrew and English are on facing pages, you can tell who's not reading the Hebrew. I know you wouldn't look and risk embarrassing your neighbor, but our books spare you the temptation and them the embarrassment.

Now you can welcome everyone to follow and participate in weekday services.
The occasional visitor with rusty Hebrew will appreciate the transliteration, while shul regulars will appreciate a fresh presentation of the familiar text, with contemporary English translation and commentary.
This book is one of three to cover our services: one is for Shabbat, a second is for festivals and this one is for weekday services. All our books include all the features that make Jewish tradition easy to follow, easy to learn, and easy to join in.
