In Jewish tradition, a Siddur is more than a book, it is the living voice of G-d and the Jewish people. Siddur Lev Shalem blends Hebrew liturgy with contemporary language English translations, explanatory materials, modern poetry, historical sources, meditations and inspirational material. With the introduction of this Siddur in our congregation, Beth El will be in the forefront of the Conservative movement in our area and around the country. This is a unique opportunity for all of us to enhance our spirituality and religious experience at services.
You can inscribe a personalized dedication into the front of a Siddur Lev Shalem for a donation of $36 per book. Click here to download the form.
