The Shabbat Siddur Companion
by: Rabbi Harvey Belovski
Many congregants who are unfamiliar with Hebrew feel lost during prayers and intimidated even by the translations available today. The Shabbat Siddur Companion offers beginners a way to feel part of the congregation and familiarize themselves with the prayers. Includes major selections from the Shabbat prayers as well as the Mourner's and Rabbi's Kaddish. Easy-to-read marginal notes encapsulate the essence of the prayer, helping the beginner instantly focus on its meaning. Footnotes give background and insights and an all-new translation of the prayers captures the beauty and power of the original Hebrew.
"Both the idea and its execution are timely and original, and the translation and commentary are superb..." - From the Foreword by Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks
