Welcome to the F. Ephraim Linker Website
Publisher of the Hebrew Prayers Learning Series (HPLS)
Phonetic-Transliterated Prayer Books (Siddurim)
    HPLS Overview
The HPLS siddurim contain prayers for Weekdays, the Sabbath, the three major Jewish festivals (Passover, Shavuot, and Sukkot), Chanukah, Purim, Rosh Chodesh, and Chol HaMoed (intermediate days of Passover and Sukkot). Prayers are presented in a three-tier format of word-for-word translation, Hebrew word, and phonetic transliteration to enable everyone to pray in Hebrew.
The following passage is an example of the HPLS three-tier phonetic-transliterated format
"... Think of all the extra davening in the world due to your efforts! Kol Tuv, Sarah ..."

HPLS publications are the perfect adjunct to Shabbat Across America and Hebrew Crash Courses.

While those programs are helpful, it may  take years to read Hebrew well enough to pray the Amidah (silent prayer).

The HPLS phonetic transliterated prayers and blessings allow you to participate immediately, with full comprehension.
