Regular Hebrew prayer books (siddurim) contain hundreds of pages and may contain prayers for the whole
year, with the exception of Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah.
To make the HPLS siddur easier to handle, it is arranged into these 6 volumes:
Volume 1. Afternoon/Evening (Mincha/Maariv) Service for Weekdays
Volume 2. Morning Service for Weekdays
Volume 3. Mealtime Blessings
Volume 4. Evening Service for the Sabbath and Festivals
Volume 5. Morning Service for the Sabbath and Festivals
Volume 6. Afternoon Service for the Sabbath and Festivals
Not all volumes are available for some of our companion siddurim (prayer books).
|Each syllable starts with a capital letter.
Stressed syllables are in bold typeface.
The passages in two-column Hybrid Hebrew-English format, as shown
below for Psalm 90, have the opening and closing verses transliterated.
In this example the closing verse is on the next page of the prayer book.

|Why scholors might want HPLS siddurim
The first four words of the Sh'mah (see above) illustrate the HPLS Three-Tier Format.
Also, shown in the above example, some text is encircled in double lines. The is one of the
methods used to distinguish differences in Nusach (order of the prayers) between Nusach
Ashkenaz, Nusach Sefard, and the Chabad (Nusach HaAri) prayer services.

Three-Tier Format and the body of the text is in two-column format.
However, when necessary to expedite the service, a two-column arrangement (see lower left section of
