Part 1, Preliminary Morning Prayers.
The first preliminary morning prayer is Modeh Ahnee (I give thanks). This prayer
doesn't mention God's name and some say it while still in bed. The preliminary
morning prayers continue with the Asher YahTzahr blessing (said after going to
the bathroom), and the N'teeLaht YahDahYim blessing (said after washing of the
Then a meditation is read and the blessing for putting on the Tallis is said.
The prayers up to this point are basically the same for nucach Sefard, Ashkenaz,
and HaAri (Chabad). The order, however differs slightly and the HPLS siddur uses
various tools to clearly note the differences between the three nusachim.
The preliminary prayers continue with the songs Ah'dohn OhLahm and YeegDahl
(summary of the 13 Principles of Faith), the 15 Morning Blessings (BrahChoht),
the Ah'kehDah (binding of Isaac), the preliminary Shema Yisrael, and various
prayers relating to the temple service. The Preliminary Morning Prayers section
concludes with the Rabbi's Mourners' Kaddish.
Part 2, Verses of Praise (PsooKay D'zeeRah).
The purpose of the Verses of Praise is to prepare the worshipper for the main
prayer. The Verses of Praise contain psalms and passages for all Nusachim,
The following listing is inclusive for the three nusachim and the differences are
Psalm 30, Mourners' Kaddish, BahRooch ShehAhMahr (opening blessing to
PsooKay D'zeeRah), HohDoo (1 Chronicles 16:8-36), Hashem MehLehch, L'chai

Part 3, Shacharit (ShahChah'reet).

Volume 5 is termed Shacharit to distinguish it from the Preliminary Morning
Prayers and Verses of Praise sections. The Shacharit section contains the

|HPLS Siddur, Six-Volume Set
Morning Service for the Sabbath and Festivals
The HPLS Phonetic-Transliterated Weekday-Morning Service for Sabbath and Festivals prayer book
(siddur) is Volume 5 of the HPLS Six-Volume set.
This siddur contains the traditional prayers for the Morning Service for Sabbath and Festivals.
The order of the prayer service is referred to as nusach. The HPLS Siddur is edited to include the
nusach used by all traditional orthodox and conservative synagogues.
The HPLS siddur is available in two versions. A Standard Edition and a Hand-Book Edition. The
Standard Edition is the original version and is slightly less expensive. It measures 8 1/2" high x 11" wide
and contains 288 pages. The Hand-Book Edition is 5 1/2" wide x 8 1/2" high and contains 495 pages.
Some people may prefer the Standard Edition as more parts of the service are visible on each page.
Otherwise, both editions of Volume 5 have similar content. The Standard Edition though, contains an
overall flowchart of the morning service. It is not included in the Hand-Book edition because of size
restrictions. Click here for a sample page from the Standard Edition.
