    Shalom Rico,

    Is there any chance to get an version in Hebrew ? I need to include AHVOT and other blessings from Amidah that are not in the Shabbat Sidur nor in the Pesach Haggadah in one chapter of the manual on wich i’m working a.t.m.

    todah raba!

  2. Thanks so much for this Siddur! I have been humbled at how we should approach our King, and this resource is a wonderful beginning for me. Thanks for including it for us.

    Shalom,
    Kimberli

  3. carlosmendoza, you make a good point about commentary bias, which we should all be aware of when we are reading any commentary. I also have the ArtScroll Chumash and while the interlinear is very good, the commentary tends to explain the text in terms of Judaic doctrine and not in terms of what the language actually means. For that, you have to read other sources. I liken their commentary to what one would find in, say, The Life Application Study Bible’s commentary – it definitely has a point of view, and a good deal of it is erroneous but consistent with Christian doctrine.

    So can you give us an example of something you find in the Koren commentary that is superior to what you find in the ArtScroll commentary for a particular verse? That might help someone make a decision on which one to purchase.

  4. The problem with ArtScroll is that most of their literature and points of views are based in a Ashkenazi pronunciation and set of mind. The other problem is their theological point of view. I bought the Interlinear ArtScroll Chumash and I am really disappointed with the commentary. The Interlinear is very good, but the commentary is not very good, is not making clear the verses.

    Koren is trying to break this leadership of ArtScroll in the market with new options. I have the Siddur and the Tanakh and but are awesome. The quality of the paper, the translation, the font and the editorial details make it much better than the ArtScroll. They published the first Tanakh translated into English in the land of Israel and I am really pleased with all the details. They have Ashkenazi, Sephardic and Morrocan Siddur and they are more contemporary to the land, they have a prayer for the Israeli Armed Forces and the land.

    The differences in the pronunciation are not very different. For me it is the difference between the English in Texas and New York.

  5. DeVo, interesting question. Do you read Hebrew? Because if you do, this may be of use to you: http://www.mysefer.com/product.asp?numPageStartPosition=1&P_ID=1330&strPageHistory=cat&strKeywords=&strSearchCriteria=&PT_ID=195

    We have been taking Hebrew lessons locally for about eight months, and have been looking for a prayer book that would teach me Sephardic pronunciation. I’ve been considering this one.

    When we were in Israel last summer, the Messianic assembly we attended used the Koren Siddur, though I am not sure which version because at that time my Hebrew was very poor.

    Are you looking for an audio method of learning Hebrew prayers? If you find something, please post. I’m looking for that as well.

    Shalom

  6. Need to learn Hebrew cantillations for these prayers as Rico is chanting as a beginner Hebrew student. Anyone know of an online learning method of Sephard cantillations for these Shabbat prayers as a beginner Hebrew student with English translations? Correct pronunciation is important to me in order to become an effective witness to Jews:)
