The Israelite-Samaritan Prayerbook for Weekday Evenings & Mornings

Contributed on: 13 May 2015 by Uri DeYoung | Benyamim Sedaka |

This is the beginning of an Israelite-Samaritan daily prayerbook. This work is still very much in progress. The file includes the title page, the Samaritan equivalent of “birkot hashahar” (the early morning blessings before prayer), and the first couple of pages of actual prayer. It is all in Samaritan script, an offshoot of paleo-Hebrew which developed after the Jews had already switched to today’s square “ashurit” script. . . .
