This siddur is arranged into three major sections:

95), SheeRoo LahShehm (Psalm 96), Psalm 97, Psalm 98, Psalm 99,
Psalm 29, AhNah B'chohAhch, L'chah DohDee, Psalm 92, Psalm 93,
Mishnah Shabbat Ch. 2 (for Nusach Ashkenaz), Zohar T'rooMah (for
Evening Service for the Sabbath and Festivals.
This section contains the main prayers for the service and is composed
of the following major parts: BahR'choo (said by the Sh'leeAhch
TzeeBoor, which means public messinger), the Shema (Sh'mah Yisrael)
and associated blessings, the Evening Prayer (Amidah) for the Sabbath
and Festivals and associated concluding prayers, counting of the Omer
(said between Passover and Shavuot), Hallel (said by some on the first
two nights of Passover), Psalm 27 (said by Nusach Ashkenaz from Elul
to 7th day of Succoth), Ah'dohn OhLahm (for Nusach Ashkenaz),
YeegDahl., Aleinu (Ah'layNoo) and Mourners' Kaddish, and AhlTeeRah
(concluding verses for the service).
Prayers Said at Home.
These prayers are said after retuning home from the synagogue:
parental blessing, ShahLohm Ah'layChehm and associated meditation,
AySheht ChahYeel, Kiddush for the Sabbath and Major Festivals
(including Havdallah for the conclusion of the Sabbath on the second
night of a major festival), N'teeLaht YahDahYeem (washing of the
hands) blessing, and HahMohTzee (blessing over bread).
This volume concludes with AhLayNoo and the Mourners' Kaddish.
To guide the reader to the key passages and thereby make
participation in the synagogue service easy, this volume, like all the
others, is also written in a hybrid style. About 80 percent of the
passages are word-for-word interlinear text, and the remaining
passages (selected passages that are usually said silently, except for
the Amidah, which is always fully transliterated) are in two-column
format, with only the first and last section of each prayer transliterated.
