Summary of HPLS Publications
FREE
Phonetiic Transliterated Blessing Sheets
(see below)
HPLS Siddur, Six-volume Set -
Orthodox/Conservative version of Hebrew Prayer book.
The HPLS Siddur, Six-Volume Set, comes in two versions: a Standard Edition and a Handbook Edition.
The
Standard Edition has two columns of text per page (click here for a photo). It measures 8 1/2" x 11"
and is bound on the short (8 1/2") edge. This edition is usually chosen as a first choice because it is easier to follow the
prayer service and it also contains overall flow charts of the morning service for weekdays and for the Sabbath and Festivals
The
Handbook Edition is half the size of the Standard Edition, but has twice as many pages. 

Both editions of the HPLS siddur contain the Traditional service for the Weekdays, Shabbat (the Sabbath),
the three major Jewish festivals (Passover, Shavuot, and Sukkot), Chanukah, Purim, Rosh
Chodesh, and Chol HaMoed (intermediate days of Passover and Sukkot). 

Differences are noted so that one can pray in the order of either the Ashkenaz, Chassidic, or Chabad prayer services (See
Nusach description).

For details on the two editions see the summaries given below or click here for a
Selection Guide.
