Siddur Order

We are delighted to share with you the news that we are acquiring a brand new Siddur (Prayerbook).  It is designed in a similar form and style to our Machzor (High Holiday Prayerbook).  It contains a more comfortable English translation as well as marginal notes which provide a combination of explanations for the meaning and history of particular prayers as well as numerous original, contemporary poems and meditations which will help supplement the worship experience by keeping it modern and new.
Similar to the High Holiday Machzor, the Shabbat and Festival Siddur is called Lev Shalem, which means a full heart.  It has been produced by the Rabbinical Assembly.
The acquisition of this Siddur is largely the result of the extremely generous donation made to Temple Beth Am by Albert Brunn for which we are most grateful.  We have purchased enough copies to place one in each seat of the Main Sanctuary for use at our Shabbat morning and Festival services, as well as for our Carlebach Friday Night services in the Social Hall.  We want to encourage every one of our congregants to purchase copies of this new Siddur at a cost of $50.00 per copy.  You can do so either as a donation to the synagogue in honor or in memory of a loved one, or you can purchase one for your own use at home. If you are interested in the former, we will place an appropriate book plate inside the cover and place it in one of our seats.  If you are interested in the latter, we will let you know when it is available for you to take home with you.  Of course, the best choice would be to order two copies, keeping one here in the synagogue and taking another one home with you!  Your enthusiastic response is eagerly anticipated.
During the recess on Yom Kippur, just before reconvening for Mincha I will offer an orientation to the new Siddur ( approximately 4:30-5:15 ).   The acquisition of Siddur Lev Shalem should add to the spiritual intensity of our worship experience here at Temple Beth Am.  I look forward to exploring with you its innovations and words of wisdom.
