Transliterated Siddur at this week’s Shabbat Service

Jane Pitt is bringing a copy of a transliterated Siddur to Shabbat Services this week for those interested in evaluating it and giving their input.

Background: Beth Shalom is considering new siddurs (prayer books) for Sabbath and Festivals.  One of the criteria is for a transliteration (Hebrew printed phonetically in English).  A committee has looked at a number of siddurs that contain Hebrew, English translation and transliteration.  In researching the availability of one of these, printed by her former synagogue in Michigan, Jane Pitt has found that this synagogue has a new transliterated siddur, which our committee has not seem. All interested Beth Shalom members can examine it this Friday at Beth Shalom.
