Our new prayerbook is completed. Just the sixth siddur in the 150 plus years of Holy Blossom’s history, this is the only book we ourselves have produced.

Infused with the ethos of the tradition and of Peoplehood, this book is most responsive to the contemporary moment. There are few siddurim in the liberal Jewish world to match Siddur Pirchei Kodesh for its fullness, its elegance, its Jewishness. This will be a siddur to cherish both while praying in our synagogue and while reciting blessings at home. It can be read as a history; it can be studied as a way into Judaism and Jewish prayer; it is an important face of our congregation.

The siddur is to be celebrated.
Thank you to everyone who joined us on Shabbat morning October 29, 2011.

Watch for videos, information and interviews on how it came to be; listen to the music of the book and how we will pray from it—and more.

This is a book to have at home, no less than in shul.
And it’s a book for dedications, to remember loved ones as well as to pay honour on special occasions.
