1) Article in the "Mishpacha" magazine in English:

In the English edition of the "Mishpacha" magazine, there is an article about our Nusach project, and about Mr. Benno Weis's work to preserve the nusach. See pages 40-41 of "The Record Keepers" supplement in the Sukkous issue.


2) New Siddur Tefillas Yeshurun:

We are happy to inform our newslist, that a new edition of Siddur Tefillas Yeshurun is ready for print, and will be available as a set of two hard copy volumes: "Siddur Tefilas Yeshurun", and "zemiors & Brochos Yeshurun".

The Siddur was put together by Rav Hofmeister from Vienna, and is his responsibility as far as the Nusach is concerned. In general, the Nusach in the Siddur is the Nusach of the Ashkenazi Rishounim and early Achrounim, (and is not exactly the nusach used in KAYJ).

The set will retail for 36, EUROS/US-Dollars (24, plus 12) or 135, NIS (90, plus 45) (plus packaging and shipment). All pre-orders before or on ראש חודש חשון will receive a special discount price: 30 EUROS/US-Dollars (20, plus 10) or 105 NIS (70, plus 35) (plus packaging and shipment).
