What People Are Saying
"The Siddur offers a new, fluid, and gender sensitive translation of the text, a transliteration according to Sefaradi pronunciation, and a running commentary. It seems that one could not wish for more, yet there are many more pearls of wisdom and excitement to be found by the traveler in the magical paths of this Siddur."
R' Ḥaim Ovadia (from the Haskamah)
“Everything needs Divine abundance, even the Sefer Torah in the Ark. I feel that the world of Sefaradi prayer needed this moment of Divine abundance, and that the Sefer Torah in the dictum is this siddur.”
"[Siddur Masorti] is my favorite new siddur in years, a must-have for any lover of Jewish liturgy. The sturdy hardcover volume — the first ever gender-egalitarian Sephardi siddur — is visually stunning inside and out. I was slack-jawed the first time I saw it."
"Beautiful, approachable , empowering text that inspires the worshiper to pray with kavanah no matter one’s previous experience."
"First - it is a work of art - beauty is on every page, and I especially love the plates with incredible designs made from the Hebrew words. Second - the explanations are a very accessible introduction to Jewish liturgy in general - and Sephardic liturgy in particular. Third - the choices the editors have made around language, both traditional and contemporary, force one to ponder more deeply the nature of the God to whom we pray."
