Don’t be caught empty-handed when we begin saying Selichot late this Saturday night!

According to Ashkenazic custom, Selichot (early morning prayers for Divine forgiveness) begin on a Saturday night, either four, six, eight or nine days before Rosh Hashanah, depending on the particulars of that year’s calendar. Each day has its own liturgy, which must be inserted into the text. Sounds complicated? Fret no longer!, in partnership with Kehot Publication Society, is proud to offer the Annotated Siddur Tehilat Hashem in three styles: classic Hebrew, annotated Hebrew/English and linear Hebrew/English.

All three versions include the complete unique Selichot texts for each day leading up to Rosh Hashanah, as well as the Selichot for Tzom Gedalya.

The app team worked for two years, alongside the Kehot team, researching and developing a fully functional “smart siddur,” presenting the various insertions of weekday prayers in a single, ready-to-use format. Thus, prayers for Rosh Chodesh, Torah readings, special insertions for fast days and more appear seamlessly in their proper place. At the backbone of this app is a powerful engine that controls the logic and algorithms for the “smart siddur” display.

The siddur app was dedicated in honor of Asher Dovid Milstein.’s family of apps are made possible by the generous partnership of Dovid and Malkie Smetana, Alan and Lori Zekelman, the Meromim Fund, and Morris and Lillian Tabacinic.

All three styles of the siddur are currently available for download on both iOS and Android.
