I have read about the importance of saying vidui in the bedtime shema and I would like to start, but I daven nusach ashkenaz whuch doesn't include vidui. Where should i insert vidui?

The following nusach ashkenaz siddurim have vidui as the first item in the bedtime shema:

Siddur Otzar Hatefillos

The Koren Sacks siddur

Siddur Rinas Yisrael p 189

Artscroll Siddur

so that seems to be a good place.

  • Thanks for the response! I daven from the Koren Sacks Siddur (love it!) and the bedtime shema starts with "hareni mochel", not vidui. I have also looked at the Artscroll Siddur and it also starts with "hareni mochel".
