This project is sustained through your beneficence. VolunteerUpload WorkDonateGiftshop
The Open Siddur is a volunteer-driven, non-profit, non-denominational, and non-prescriptive community project growing a gratis & libre Open Access archive of digitized Jewish prayer, liturgy, and related works (historic and contemporary, familiar and obscure), composed in every era, region, and language Jews and other Israelites have ever prayed. Our goal is to provide a platform for sharing open-source resources, tools, and content for individuals and communities crafting their own prayerbooks (סִדּוּרִים | siddurim). Through this we hope to empower personal autonomy, to preserve customs, and to foster openness and vitality in religious culture.

Len Fellman is a mathematician, educator, and innovator of "transtropilation," the process of translating from cantillized Hebrew, as closely as possible, “word for word and trōp for trōp”, with the main purpose being to aid a person with minimal Hebrew training in following the Hebrew leyning of the Torah and Haftarah readings word for word.
