SEPHARDIC SIDDUR PDF

On Sunday St Albans, of all places, will see the launch of a world first: a Sephardi, egalitarian siddur. If you wonder why the need for such an innovation, first, consider the question: why have Sephardi egalitarian communities not sprung up before? After all, in the Ashkenazi world egalitarian services are long established, however only outside Orthodoxy. In the Sephardi world, separate denominations never came about — they were a European phenomenon following a Christian model.

On Sunday St Albans, of all places, will see the launch of a world first: a Sephardi, egalitarian siddur. If you wonder why the need for such an innovation, first, consider the question: why have Sephardi egalitarian communities not sprung up before?

After all, in the Ashkenazi world egalitarian services are long established, however only outside Orthodoxy. In the Sephardi world, separate denominations never came about — they were a European phenomenon following a Christian model.

As a result, Sephardim have for centuries followed a far more flexible and people-focused model of halachah Jewish law , never having had other denominations to gatekeep from or react against. Women, men and non-binary people led services, read from the Torah, had aliyot, said Kaddish, or simply sang aloud, many for the first time.

Since then the community has done smaller Sunday services and shiurim, and is growing towards further Shabbatot. Furthermore, it is not just for the inclusion of women that new communities are being innovated, as shown by the Sephardi-Mizrahi Q Network in New York. There is a desire, at a grassroots level and across the world, for Sephardi communities to reflect changing social attitudes while remaining within their halachic tradition — as Sephardim have always done.

Unlike in Ashkenazi communities, when such innovation would have splintered away into a separate denomination, among Sephardim this is simply a parallel and co-existent halachic interpretation. A sorely-needed next step in the development of this still disparate global movement was a siddur. The result is Siddur Masorti. Rabbi Adam Zagoria-Moffet. The publication of a siddur is the type of endeavour normally undertaken only by major publishing or communal conglomerates.

Yet Siddur Masorti, funded by a Kickstarter and a grant from the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York, has been painstakingly put together as a grassroots project in the spare time of a communal rabbi and a musician.

The result is an unprecedented nexus of Sephardi nusach and egalitarian practice for English-speaking Jews. The volume is also packed with additional piyyutim poems and bakashot petitions from Sephardi traditions from all over the world.

The Hebrew text includes variations for inclusivity of all genders, for example in first-person passages and call-up rubrics, and the translation is completely gender-neutral in its references to the Divine.

The siddur also has a full transliteration, a first in a Hebrew-English Sephardi siddur. Isaac Treuherz. Finally, the siddur is illuminated throughout with digital textual art and prints of purpose-drawn calligraphy by Noam Sienna, sofer scribe , artist and author of A Rainbow Thread. Since launching this month, the initial attention has surprised even us, with hundreds of pre-orders and global interest.

A second volume — for Shabbat and festivals — is on the way. It is hard to predict where this movement will go, but with a blend of unashamed inclusivity and vibrant halachic discourse relighting a flame in Sephardi grassroots communities around the world, something definitely seems to be beginning.

The ArtScroll Sephardic Siddur - Schottenstein Edition

A set of eighteen currently nineteen blessings called the Shemoneh Esreh or the Amidah Hebrew , "standing [prayer]" , is traditionally ascribed to the Great Assembly in the time of Ezra , at the end of the Biblical period. The name Shemoneh Esreh , literally "eighteen", is a historical anachronism, since it now contains nineteen blessings. It was only near the end of the Second Temple period that the eighteen prayers of the weekday Amidah became standardized. Even at that time their precise wording and order was not yet fixed, and varied from locale to locale. Many modern scholars believe that parts of the Amidah came from the Hebrew apocryphal work Ben Sira.
