Rabbi Dr. Rachel Sabath Beit-Halachmi serves the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion as the National Director of Recruitment and Admissions and President's Scholar and heads the Office of Community Engagement.

About the Open Siddur.

We are building a complete end-to-end system for producing high-quality Jewish prayer books, for paper publication or for sharing online.
We envision a system robust enough for use by academic researchers, Jewish educators, and DIY crafters.

Won’t you join us?

Imagine a printing press and book arts studio shared by everyone in the world looking to design and craft their own siddur.

Imagine an open database of Jewish prayers showing historical variations and changes across Jewish traditions, manuscripts, and facsimile editions.

Imagine the siddur as a record of your family’s and community’s minhagim and nusaḥ tweaked exactly to your needs.

Re-imagine your siddur, but custom designed by you — one that integrates your practice with your learning and experience, as well as those of your teachers, friends, family, and thinkers across the map of Jewish tradition.

Our collaborative, open-source project is working to create a libre open access database of Jewish prayers and related work, historic and contemporary, familiar and obscure, in every language Jews pray or have ever prayed.

While development proceeds, individuals, groups, and institutions are invited to share their Jewish liturgy and related creative work immediately under their choice of Open Content license.
(Source code for alpha-ready Open Siddur application is available from our github repositories. Join our development team.)

You can help us realize this vision…. ☞
