Praying in Hebrew can be extremely difficult without the benefit of a religious education.
The HPLS Siddur addresses this need and guides the reader into the heart of the Hebrew service without years of study.
It allows for immediate connection to Judaism.
No other siddur uses the same format as the HPLS Siddur.
