No, not according to the answer on this site: Although it is preferable to join a minyan where this is possible, both Kol Nidrei and Yizkor can be recited in private. The reason for this is that neither are considered a “davar shebikdusha” that requires a minyan.

Actually there is a debate in Orach Chayim 622:1 between the Sefardi and the Ashkenazi practice (as pointed out by DoubleAA in comment): למנחה אומר אשרי ובא לציון ואין אומרים ואני תפלתי אפילו אם חל להיות בשבת:‏ הגה: ואין אנו נוהגין לומר אשרי ובא לציון קודם מנחה רק קודם נעילה וכן כתבו קצת רבוותא (מרדכי והגהות מיימוני סוף ספר אהבה וסוף הלכות יום ...

It has been said that a Jew may visit the graves of righteous gentiles to arouse one to do Teshuvah when the graves of Jews are not available in one’s vicinity, but if the cemetery you wish to enter contains statues of idols (such as Christian crosses, etc.) then you should not enter such a cemetery let alone pray or learn there. M”B 579:14; Kaf Hachaim ...

This question is in fact dealt with by Rashi on the spot, who says that the first ה is redundant, and this has the same meaning as מלך המשפט, citing scriptural precedents for this phrasing. Basically - this is an unusual, anomalous usage which חז"ל chose for some reason, but the normative way of saying this would be מלך המשפט - king of justice. Thanks to @...

A quick check of a small selection of nusach Ashkenaz siddurim (Birnbaum, Tefilloh Sefas Yisroel, ArtScroll, Koren, Rödelheim) indicates that the 'Amidah for Rosh haShannah is the same* for all tefillot, except for Musaf. For Yom Kippur, 'Arvit, Shacharit, and Minchah are the same, while Musaf and Ne'ilah are each unique (the latter has an identical nusach ...

Levush Orach Chayyim 582:8 writes as follows: ונ"ל שיש לו לכפול לעילא כמו שכופלין אותו בכל שאר תפילות של ר"ה וי"כ והטעם שכופלין אותו מפני שבימים הללו הוא מתעלה אחר כפול ומכופל מפי ברואיו מפני שהוא יושב על כסא דין והכל צריכין לשבחו ולפארו ולבקש רחמים על דינו It seems to me that [the chazzan] should double le-ela, as we double it at all other prayers ...

Assuming a 385 day maleh leap year in Diaspora and no Torah portions doubled which would yield 54 Shabbatot. Every day of the year has, Ma'ariv, Shacahrit and Mincha. Including both silent & repetitions you get 5 Amidot per day. 385 * 5 = 1,1925 Add an extra 2 for the days of Musaph: 54 Shabbatot + 20 days Rosh Hodesh + 22 Yom Tov = 96 days * 2 Amidot ...

Sephradim say "she'Atah". And there are other cases of "sha'Atah", eg in Emes veYatziv. In the Torah, you will not find a "she-" prefix. HQBH uses "asher". (Nor the "kishe-" for when / whenever.) In early Navi, you'll find "sha-". Not too often, but one case is in Shofetim 6:17, when Gid'on refers to Hashem as "sha'Atah". (Another is the two occurrences of ...

If you are still looking for a German Siddur, the siddur of Rav. Hirsch is probably the best option. It is in the style of Minhag Frankfurt, which is more of the Ashkenaz minhag than Siddurs from Northern Germany. https://www.amazon.com/Hirsch-Siddur-Order-Prayers-Whole/dp/087306142X/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=The+Hirsch+Siddur&qid=1570317161&sr=8-3
