Details of HPLS Sim Shalom Siddur - 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).
This section contains the evening prayers for welcoming the Sabbath. It starts with the
blessings for Lighting the Sabbath and Holiday Candles, which is usually performed at
home. The remaining KahBahLaht Shabbat prayers L'choo N'rahN'nah (Psalm 95),
SheeRoo LahShehm (Psalm 96), Psalm 97, Psalm 98, Psalm 99, Psalm 29, AhNah

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).
The service 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. Click here for a sample page of the siddur showing the
