Sabbath and Festivals
|The HPLS Evening Service for the Sabbath and Festivals is Volume 4 of the HPLS 6-Volume set. The siddur can be used both for the Orthodox and Conservative Ashkenaz Prayer Services.
The HPLS siddur is available in a Standard Edition (shown above) and a Handbook Edition (click here). The content of both editions of Volume 4 is exactly the same
The Standard Edition measures 8 1/2" x 11" and contains 94 pages.
The Handbook Edition measures 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and contains 183 pages.
The Handbook edition is easier to hold, however new users of the HPLS may prefer the Standard Edition, as more parts of the service are visible on each page. Click here for a sample page from the Standard Edition.
All volumes of the HPLS Siddur include prayers for the Nusach Ashkenaz, Nusach HaAri (Chabad), and Nusach Sefard versions of the prayer service

|HPLS Standard Edition
Evening Service for the Sabbath and Festivals.
This volume contains the complete evening service for the Sabbath and the Three Pilgrimage Festivals (Passover, Shavuot, and Succoth).
Prayers are included for the Nusach Ashkenaz, Nusach HaAri (Chabad), and Nusach Sefard versions of the service.
The HPLS format makes the service variations easy to follow.
This siddur is arranged into three major sections:
This Kabbalat Shabbat section contains the prayers that welcome the incomming Shabbat. These prayers include L'choo N'rahN'nah (Psalm 95), SheeRoo LahShehm (Psalm 96), Psalm 97, Psalm 98, Psalm 99, Psalm 29, AhNah B'chohAhch, L'chah DohDee, Psalm 92, Psalm 93, Mishnah Shabbat Ch. 2 (for Nusach Ashkenaz), Zohar T'rooMah (for Nusach Sefard).
Evening Service for the Sabbath and Festivals.
This section contains the main prayers for the service and is composed of the following major parts: BahR'choo (said by the Sh'leeAhch TzeeBoor, which means public messinger), the Shema (Sh'mah Yisrael) and associated blessings, the Evening Prayer (Amidah) for the Sabbath and Festivals and associated concluding prayers, counting of the Omer (said between Passover and Shavuot), Hallel (said by some on the first two nights of Passover), Psalm 27 (said by Nusach Ashkenaz from Elul to 7th day of Succoth), Ah'dohn OhLahm (for Nusach Ashkenaz), YeegDahl., Aleinu (Ah'layNoo) and Mourners' Kaddish, and AhlTeeRah (concluding verses for the service).
Prayers Said at Home.
These prayers are said after retuning home from the synagogue: parental blessing, ShahLohm Ah'layChehm and associated meditation, AySheht ChahYeel, Kiddush for the Sabbath and Major Festivals (including Havdallah for the conclusion of the Sabbath on the second night of a major festival), N'teeLaht YahDahYeem (washing of the hands) blessing, and HahMohTzee (blessing over bread).
This volume concludes with AhLayNoo and the Mourners' Kaddish.
To guide the reader to the key passages and thereby make participation in the synagogue service easy, this volume, like all the others, is also written in a hybrid style. About 80 percent of the passages are word-for-word interlinear text, and the remaining passages (selected passages that are usually said silently, except for the Amidah, which is always fully transliterated) are in two-column format, with only the first and last section of each prayer transliterated.
