164 pages, 6×9, perfect bound.  A fully transliterated kabbalat shabbat siddur.

This popular transliterated siddur for Friday evenings contains the complete text for Shabbat and Festival evening services, along with notes and alternative readings. The siddur features a gender-neutral faithful translation of the Hebrew as well as line-by-line transliteration in a user-friendly three-column format.

The new edition has been revised and reformatted and includes for the first time the full weekday Minchah service. Its popular price should make it easily accessible to havurot and independent minyanim. The siddur in its new configuration is complemented by its companion publication, the bentsher L’chu N’ran’nah (Let Us Sing!).

Also available in oversize edition, for $17.95.

Communities currently using the previous hardcover edition will be pleased that pagination for the Kabbalat Shabbat and Ma-ariv services in the 3rd edition is consistent with the prayer books they already own.

Why a transliterated siddur?

For as long as siddurim have been published, authors have struggled with how to make them accessible to as many people as possible.  The first obvious step was translation, and most siddurim of the late 20th Century were translated, even in the ultra-Orthodox world.  But in the last few decades, many people have entered synagogues without the ability to decode Hebrew.

So: in 1993, the havurah movement came up with a new layout for the first fully transliterated siddur: Chaveirim Kol Yisraeil, otherwise known as “the purple siddur.”  The format was a four-column spread, with Hebrew, translation, and transliteration on the same line; the fourth column was commentary.

In 2000, that siddur was expanded to include Birkat HaMazon, and came out in a hardback edition.  In 2009, the same havurah movement published L’chu N’ran’nah (Let Us Sing), possibly the richest bencher ever published, using a similar format.

Today’s Siddur Chaveirim Kol Yisraeil includes Mincha for the first time, as well as an Amidah for festivals, so it truly works for every Friday night and for all choices a minyan might make.  And it is priced to make it accessible for any group without a large budget!  It does not include benching and kiddushes, which are all in L’chu N’ran’nah.
