Dr. Hillel Farḥi (translation)

Born in Damascus, educated in Beirut and London, Dr. Hillel Yaacob Farḥi (1868-1940) was a well-known Cairo physician who treated the poor free of charge. He was also a considerable scholar, grammarian and poet who wrote and translated many books - both religious and secular. Besides his siddur, he published maḥzorim in Arabic for the high holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, as well a number of editions of the Passover Haggadah with his own running commentary.

Join us in creating a faithful digital transcription of the Siddur Farḥi (Hillel Farḥi, 1917), a nusaḥ sepharadi, minhag Egypt siddur. After transcription and proofreading, this new digital edition will be shared under a Creative Commons Zero (CC0) Public Domain dedication. The edition will then be encoded in TEI XML and archived in the Open Siddur database, a libre Open Access liturgy database. We are grateful to Alain Farḥi for imaging this Public Domain work and providing a digital copy for this effort. . . .
