The Koren siddur, originally published in 1981, has been completely re-typeset for maximum clarity and legibility. Teams of rabbis, scholars, and designers from Israel, North America, and Britain have worked for nearly three years updating and researching every subtlety of the Hebrew text. Rabbinic experts and gabbaim have reviewed all the halachic issues and nuances that distinguish prayer in Israel from prayer in the Diaspora. Proudly reflecting the centrality of Israel, the siddur contains prayers for the Jewish state, its soldiers, and holidays. With a poetic English translation and illuminating commentary by the outstanding teacher of English-speaking Jewry, Chief Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks, this siddur will inspire prayerful devotion. Compact size is ideal for students, travel, and in talit and tefilin bags, covered in dark slate Skivertex soft cover binding.
