Sydney’s Central Synagogue is introducing a new prayer-book for congregants who cannot read Hebrew.

The new addition to the bookshelves is a transliterated siddur. The book is published with the Hebrew prayers phonetically printed in English script with the English translation printed under each line.

Rabbi Levi Wolff said: “I trust this will make davening more meaningful…every¬†worshipper can now participate rather than spectate. The translation will help to understand the prayers.”

The new siddur was introduced this week.
