Three-Tier Format
To ensure accuracy of the transliterations and translations of the HPLS
prayerbooks, Rabbi Shmuel Rabin, who is a scholar in Hebrew grammar and
the Hebrew prayer service, has carefully edited all HPLS publications.
In addition to learning to read Hebrew, HPLS publications are a useful
tool for anyone who wants to be assured of correct pronunciation.
The Amidah, and other prayers that we classify as important and should be
read in Hebrew, are in full Three-Tier Format, as shown in this example.
To make the prayer service easier to follow, some passages are in
two-column Hebrew-English format, as shown below for Psalm 90.
