I haven't been able to locate a definitive source as to why many Nusach Ashkenaz machzorim seem to use the Nusach Sefard version on Rosh Hashannah / Yom Kippur. Art Scroll and Birnbaum does this, also, BTW. (@Noach Mi FRANKFURT- and you're not using Birnbaum??? Ah Shandeh :-) :-) See the link @Gershon Gold referred to and view the answer, there, that refers ...

The Behr Siddur (Siddur Avodath Yisroel by Roedelheim, 1868) says in the footnotes: This is not found in the Siddurim of the Sefardim, nor in most handwritten Siddurim. (Rav Amrom, Rokach, Kol Bo, etc.) and therefore it appears to have been copied here from the Malchioth of the Rosh Hashana Mussaf.

The Birnbaum Siddur Ashkenaz has it right after the weekday Shacharit. (I don't know about Nusach Sefarad siddurim). The siddur is out of print, but you may be able to obtain a copy via Amazon, eBay and some Judaica stores. It seems that many Conservative / traditional shuls like Birnbaum. I have seen this in some other Siddurim (offhand, I don't think Art ...

The Koren siddur does include it, and possibly others as well. The Halacha is like Rabbi Akiva in Mishna Brachot 4:3. There, he says that one whose davening is not "שגורה בפיו" should say Havineinu. However, in the modern day where everyone can read the entire text from a siddur, we are generally considered as people who are proficient. This is what I ...

In truth, it's a very old מחלקת. It's mainly about the words יתגדל ויתקדש. Some מדקדקים thought that, even though we find both pata'h and tsérei occurrences for that type of word in the Torah, the normal one is with a tsérei, but in all old nuscha'os including rishonim, it's with a patach. This argument is brought by the סידור רב שלמה סופר מפרמישלה, whose ...

I have not seen any all-inclusive siddur that includes everything you need - i.e. - every possible prayer for every day of the year including all the complete service (piyuttim) said for all the Rosh Hashannah and Yom Kippur prayers. If you have seen the "combo" Birnbaum Rosh Hashannah / Yom Kippur High Holiday machzor (no longer in print), it was hefty. As ...

Artscroll's סידור יצחק יאיר is a good choice, as a good, complete siddur with a clear print. It is the standard siddur used in most shuls. You can buy them in practically any Jewish book store, or online (for example, here). There is a pocket-sized edition of the siddur. (Note: this siddur is nusach Ashkenaz; the Artscroll nusach Sefard equivalent is the ...

Being blind myself, I can more specifically address Hebrew Braille and how siddurim work. As the first answer says, a person who knows English Grade 2 braille does not need to start from scratch, because there are many similarities. However, it is not transliteration; the Hebrew letters are represented character for character, with the vowels, when used, ...

I have a friend who is blind. Hebrew braille does not have its own alphabet, but rather uses the same symbols that English braille does. Also, text runs in the same direction as English letters (see the first paragraph of the aforementioned Wikipedia article) -- which I can imagine might be confusing to someone who used to read Hebrew in the original ...

It does not seem to be in print. But I did find this: Service of the Synagogue George Routledge (Author) 3 volumes, New Year (1) / Day of Atonement (2) For a picture see: http://www.manorhousebooks.co.uk/PICS/IMG_0764.JPG
