Details of the HPLS Sim Shalom
Weekday Morning Siddur

Preliminary Morning Prayers

The first Preliminary Morning Prayer is MohDeh Ah'nee (I thank). This prayer
doesn't mention God's name and some say it even while in bed.

The preliminary morning prayers continue with the
Ah'sher YahTzahr blessing
(said after going to the bathroom), the
N'teeLaht YahDahYim blessing (said after
washing of the hands), and the meditation and blessings for putting on the

The preliminary prayers continue with the songs Ah'dohn OhLahm, the 15
Morning Blessings
(B'rahChoht), the Ah'kehDah (binding of Isaac) and the
remainder of the temple prayers.  However, the temple selections in the Sim
Shalom Siddur have been replaced with other biblical passages since those
passages are exclusive to Siddur Sim Shalom. The HPLS siddur uses the
traditional passages in this portion of the siddur (see Table of Contents pages 43
through 59). The Preliminary Prayers section concludes with the Rabbi's

Verses of Praise (P'sooKay D'zeemRah

The Verses of Praise section is designed to get the worshiper ready for
the main prayer.

The order is as follows:
Psalm 30
Mourners' Kaddish
BahRooch ShehAhMahr (opening blessing to P'sooKay D'zeemRah)
HohDoo (1 Chronicles 16:8-36)
Psalm 100
Ashrei (Psalm 145)
Psalm 146

Shacharit (ShahChah'reet)

Although Shacharit usually applies to the whole Morning Service, this part of the
HPLS Morning Siddur is referred to as
Shacharit to distinguish it
from the Preliminary Morning Prayers and Verses of Praise sections. Shacharit is
actually the Morning Prayer. The Shacharit section is almost completely
transliterated and consists of the following:
the Shema (Sh'mah YisRahEhl) and associated preliminary and
concluding blessings, the Weekday Silent Prayer
(Ah'meeDah), the Tachanun

In the amidah, the Rabbinical Assembly has added prayers for Yoh Ha-shoah,
Yom Ha-atzm'ut, and Tishah B'Av. These prayers are copyrighted and are not
included in the HPLS siddur. Please refer to the Sim Shalom siddur for these

With a quorum of 10 present, the silent prayer is repeated by the chazen
(Sh'leeAhch TzeeBoor,  or public messenger). The Sh'leeAhch TzeeBoor adds
KahDooShah prayer, which is said aloud by him and the congregants.

Shacharit section ends with these Concluding Morning Prayers:
Psalm 20,
V'ahTah KahDohsh,
Psalm of the day,
Psalm 27 (said from Elul to 7th day of Succoth),
Psalm 49 (said in a house of mourning,
HahMahKohm Y'nahChehm (said to the mourner during the shivah),


This psalm section is said for the New Moon (Rosh ChohDehsh), Chanukah, and
the intermediate days (
Chohl HahMohEhd) of the three Pilgrimage Festivals.

Torah Service

Said on Monday, Thursday, Chanukah, Rosh Chodesh, Chohl HahMohEhd.

BahR'chee NahfShee) is said during the Rosh ChohDehsh service.

Musaf for Chohl HahMohEhd

These prayers are added for the intermediate days of Passover and Sukkot.

The HPLS Morning Siddur concludes with
Aleinu and the Mourners' Kaddish.
