Prayer at Home Resources

If you would like to follow along with our services from home, the Rabbinic Assembly has made Siddur Lev Shalem (Shabbat) and Siddur Sim Shalom (daily minyan) available for download as a PDF via this form. If you would prefer a physical copy, the siddurim are available for purchase via the Rabbinical Assembly website.

Click here to use our full transliterations for Morning Minyan.

We are pleased to share the following prayer written by Rabbi Haim Ovadia — an alternative to the Mourner’s Kaddish, meant to be recited when there is no minyan present. As our livestream does not constitute a minyan, we invite those who are saying Kaddish this Shabbat to print this prayer in advance of tuning in.

Shabbat Tzav (April 3-4)

Triennial: Leviticus 6:1-7:10
Haftarah: Jeremiah 7:21-8:3; 9:22-23
