Nusach Sefard

The Nusach Sefard order of the prayers is for Chassidim, who, by the way
are also Ashkenazi in origin. This nusach is the used in Israel and in most
shteebles (small private Chassidic congregations) throughout the world.  
Many Ashkenaz Jews attend both Nusach Sefard and Nusach Ashkenaz
shuls.  The Nusach Sefard siddurim
contain some additional prayers, however, the overall content differs only
slightly from that of Nusach Ashkenaz.
Differences in nusach are noted by the encircling of text. In addition, flow
charts are included in Volumes 2 and 5 of the Hebrew Prayers Learning
Series (HPLS) Six-Volume Set to guide you through the order of the prayer
Nusach Ashkenaz

The Nusach Ashkenaz prayers are used in most of the larger Modern Orthodox
and Conservative synagogues. The siddurs for both the Orthodox and
Conservative Ashkenaz congregations are similar. The Conservative siddur,
however, omits some passages, and in some instances, includes additional
passages. The Reform siddur is somewhat related to that of the Nusach
Ashkenaz siddur, but differs greatly in format. A Reform siddur is not offered by
the HPLS, except for a
Friday Night Study Guide, which was specifically

The Jewish community from Spain and Portugal are referred to as Sephardi.
The Sephardi prayer service is not covered in the HPLS siddur.
Within the Ashkenaz community, there are three separate sub-groups:  Nusach
HaAri (Chabad Lubavitach), Nusach Ashkenaz, and Nusach Sefard.
Nusach HaAri (Chabad)

The Nusach HaAri prayers are is used exclusively by the Chabad Lubavitch.  
The Chabad siddur is almost identical to that of  the Nusach Sefard siddur, but
contains some differences.

A companion siddur to the latest Chabad Lubavitch siddur is now available from
the HPLS. However, only two volumes of the planned six are finished so far.

For details of the Chabad companion siddur please see
Chabad Siddur.
