Kiddush for the Sabbath and Holidays, grace after meals, and virtually every zemer (Sabbath table song) you've ever heard is to be found in this handsome volume. The English translation and insightful introduction are provided by one of the most respected Rabbis and teachers of the past generation, Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks.
Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks, former Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the British Commonwealth, was one of the world s leading Jewish figures. Educated at Cambridge University and Jews College London, he served as Principal of Jews College London and President of the Council of Christians and Jews in the United Kingdom. Chief Rabbi Sacks was the author of numerous books of Jewish thought, and provided the English translation and commentary for The Koren Sacks Siddur, the first new Orthodox prayer book in a generation.
Koren Publishers, originally founded by Eliyahu Koren over 50 years ago, has transformed the way Jews pray worldwide. His effort to create a font that executes maximum clarity to the reader, makes ancient Hebrew accessible during a modern era. The first Koren Siddur was published in 1981, to "encourage(d) the worshiper to engross the mind and heart in prayer,” according to Mr. Koren. All IDF soldiers receive a Koren Siddur upon entering the Israeli army, which is a ritual that prevails today. Koren continues to expand to Jews all over the world to transform the prayer experience.
