Description

Aaron Wolf writes,

I originally wrote this siddur for myself since I was unable to find a bound siddur of the German rite. However I wanted my siddur to be refined enough so that anybody with a background in tefila would be able to use it. Everything is arranged very carefully to maintain a pleasing page layout with plenty of visual cues. Among the visual cues are the vignettes on the chapter and section headings, as well as the bolding of the first words of important paragraphs. You will not find any commentary, nor will you find much instruction of how to perform certain tefilos and rituals. Instead I’ve focused on minimalist instructions. The reason for this is to maintain the flow of the text.

If the reader is interested in learning more about German Jewish customs, some great resources are Machon Moreshes Ashkenaz, the K’hal Adas Yeshurun Jerusalem forums, and Tefiloh Sefas Yisroel, which is the work that my own siddur is based on.

Siddur Olas Tamid is written in XeLaTeX markup language. It became my project once I learned how to typeset Hebrew using XeLaTeX. The full source code is available under the open-source GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL) from my github account.
