This fourth edition of the famous Singer's Prayer Book will make the same impact on the Jewish world today as the first edition did in 1890. Not only do the new layout, size, Hebrew font, instructions, rubrics and readability make it 'user friendly', but the new translations and insightful commentaries by the Chief Rabbi, Sir Jonathan Sacks, are surely going to become the benchmark by which all other Hebrew/English Jewish daily prayer books are judged.

The Hebrew font has been designed to help those who want to read in the modern Hebrew pronunciation and the clarity of print in both Hebrew and English are excellent. The new elements of prayer will also be of great help to today's reader, whether at home, in the synagogue or when travelling.

This is a major re-working of the "Singers Siddur", the standard prayer book of the United Hebrew Congregations of the UK and Commonwealth.

The font has been changed to be more like the the popular Art Scroll. Some people think this is an improvement while others feel it is a retrograde step. I think it is a matter of taste.

Big improvements are:

(1) The addition of new prayers that are in Art Scroll and were not in the old Singers such as "ana b'koach" and "Yedid nephesh" in place with no page-flipping on Fri evening, and some new prayers for life events.

(2) Guide-markings to pronunciation (when to pronounce kamatz as "o" in sephardi pronounciation and when to articulate the "sheva") are most welcome.

(3) A wonderful complete retranslation has been done by the Chief Rabbi, Sir Jonathan Sacks. He has both a fine command of the English language and a deep knowledge of the Hebrew prayers so is well placed to do this.

(4) The new introduction to the prayer book by Chief Rabbi, Sir Jonathan Sacks has been highly praised as reason enough to buy this book.

(5) More guidance on what to do (actions for prayers etc) has been added and there are new footnotes by the Chief Rabbi that are worth reading.

(6) Efforts have been made to put home prayers like kiddush and havdallah on one page rather than page-flipping in the middle (as in the previous edition) but this has only partially been achieved.

You get a silk place marker which is a nice touch - the larger editions have 2 markers. Actually, I find I need more than that in practice. The binding and cover seem durable so far.

While I'm very happy with this item, I felt I had to deduct a star for a couple of reasons. First, the print is *very* small. This is unavoidable when you have to put so much text into such a small volume (and it *is* nice that the book is easily pocket-sized.) But if you have less-than-perfect vision, you may have problems with this edition.

My second quibble is that Amazon describe this book as 'Leather bound'. This led me to expect that it would have the nice leather finish that you get on some Artscroll products. In fact, the cover on this book isn't leather at all, but quite nasty paper-thin vinyl. The book is still most certainly worth buying, but if you're expecting a nice leather finish, you'll be sorely disappointed.

Most reviews are about the 'pocket edition', which I find misleading. This full size hardback presentation edition is one of the most remarkable religeous books of this age. Elderly people will have no trouble reading it and this is my main reason for changing from the small version. It does not take long to get used to the modernisations of the familiar texts and I believe that anyone who accepts changes to our longstanding traditions will benefit from this book. In passing, I would suggest also that the book will become a family heirloom due to its beautiful presentation.

Living in Denmark, the only Siddurim available are either Swiss or German. The British Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks has really captured the Spirit of the United Congregation Service and Ritual in his Siddur and it's translation. The Service is perfectly shown with all of the intricasies of the Ashkenazi service on the different days of the week, Sabbath and also the High Festivals. A beautiful Siddur with great print and exactly as needed to follow the service in the Synagogue.

The Amazon description of this siddur doesn't clearly state that it's a travel size. The actual size of the front cover is 9cm by 12.5cm.
The font size is quite small, so if you usually have problems reading small text, consider buying the larger copy of this siddur.

Super cute edition. Very practical. It was perfect to take for a month journey in Israel and being able to always have it in my bag.
Because of the size the letters are unfortunately very small. Please, consider that when buying this edition!

This relates only to the Kindle version, which I just tried now. The other versions of this book are very good and I have no complaint with them.

The Kindle version messes up the page layout, repeating pages of the hebrew and with the english section following the hebrew part en-masse, rather than page-by-page as in the hard copy version. This is particularly annoying when it comes to reading the commentary.

I understand why it's been done that way, to avoid interrupting the flow of the prayers, but it doesn't work. Between sections you then have to wade through a block of English text to get to the next bit, so in the end it doesn't achieve what I assume they're trying to do.

The chapter divisions also aren't very useful as it ignores their subdivisions.

It would be far better either to ditch the English sections completely, or change the layout so that English and Hebrew parts are on the same virtual page.
