KOREN SACKS SIDDUR PDF

For one thing, some people read it every day of their lives. This begs the question, why use a prayerbook in the first place? But prayer is as much for us as it is for God — maybe even more so. The red-and-gray cover has a cool, retro look, a bit like a stylish car manual and a bit like a volume from the Library at Alexandria. The interior has a cool font, more stylized than the squared-off letters in most prayerbooks. These are probably closer to the look of the original stone-cut letters than those in other prayerbooks — a daled looks like a daled, and not at all like a resh.

The pages are thin but firm. A few months ago, when my daughter was really young, she routinely tried to make a grab for the pages, and the stiff paper of my Israeli siddur was just about the only thing that kept that prayerbook intact.

Back to the weight, though: these pages really are incredibly thin, like one of those hotel-room Christian bibles. Over pages altogether, including some back-of-the-book bonuses, like prayers before death, after childbirth, and after recovering from a serious illness. There are also psalms for special occasions, a halakhic guide to praying for visitors to Israel, and a calendar of Jewish leap years that goes well into the new century. Not every siddur can fit in the entirety of Jewish thought and texts, and a few handy things to have around are missing.

The Book of Psalms is a cool extra feature inside a lot of siddurim, but not this one. The English and Hebrew are both laid out like poetry, both starting at the margin, which works really well when you know a little bit of Hebrew, and you want to flip back and forth between the languages.

Perhaps the biggest grace of this siddur is Rabbi Sir Dr. He writes about the prayers in an easy, conversational way that is sparse, functional and to-the-point. For the Shema , he says this: The Shema contains no human requests, no praise, no plea. It is a set of biblical readings. It is less a prayer than a prelude to prayer. In prayer, we speak to God. In the Shema, God, through the Torah, speaks to us. Like the text itself, the commentary flows from the left page to the right page, even though the book goes from right to left.

I suppose that could be construed as a nutshell review of the entire siddur. It leads you to expect things. Not to replace ArtScroll or Siddur Sim Shalom — or any other prayerbook, for that matter — but to shake up the status quo a little, and to give us a new way to read those same words.

When I saw the package arrive I was excited to get started on my review. I opened it up and saw a beautifully designed and bound volume. I opened it up immediately and I must admit I was a bit disappointed - even before I read the first word. The pages in Koren are therefore almost tissue thin. I guess that is about the only way one can fit that many pages into the same space as ArtScroll. This makes turning the pages a bit more difficult and probably more subject to wear and tear.

This is the best siddur for those of us that strongly identify with the zionist movement, as there are actually prayers for certain aspects of being in Israel, as well as and most importantly for me prayers for the state of Israel and the IDF, which are strangely absent from Art Scroll. Moving on, the Hebrew font Koren uses in their books is by far, in my opinion, the most beautiful Hebrew font in existence. Fortunately, there are two ribbon markers to make this easier.

Review: The Koren Sacks Siddur

He said that his commentary is intended to "shed some light on the inner logic of the prayers", [11] Differences from other Orthodox siddurim[ edit ] The translation and commentary, although based on the Authorized Daily Prayer Book, has been reworked by Rabbi Sacks and a team of translators from Koren. The prayers follow the Koren tradition, including prayers not present in previous UK Singer siddurim. There are some differences of nusach liturgical choices and instructions, as this siddur is for a North American readership. Includes prayers for the government and armed forces.
