The Masorti Movement in Israel, in cooperation with the Israeli Institute on Cognitive Accessibility and Ami: The Association for People with Cognitive Developmental Challenges, produced this “accessible” Prayer in Times of War in simplified Hebrew with communications symbols. The prayer was offered in the spirit of the Masorti Movement’s סידור בְּכׇל דְּרָכֶיךָ (Siddur b’khol Darkhekha, 2018), designed primarily for special needs Bar/Bat Mitzvah programs. (Many thanks to Shoshana Michael Zucker for informing us of this prayer.)

The innovative graphical aspect of this prayer is the association of glyph representations above the offered lines of prayer. Alas, these cannot glyphs cannot be easily reproduced outside of the layout supported in the PDF in which the prayer is disseminated. The best we can do is to share the semantic content of the prayer, setting the Hebrew side-by-side with its translation in English. –Aharon Varady

  • The glyphs not only aid understanding for people for whom reading words is difficult but are also used on augmentative and alternative communications devices that can “speak” for the person who clicks on the icon/glyph.
