Our Siddur and Chumash

On all weekdays, Shabbat & Holidays, we use the Sim Shalom prayer book published by the Conservative Movement along with the Eit Ratzon prayer book published by Shiviti that contains transliteration for all prayers. To read along, understand and follow the Torah and Haftarah readings we use the Etz Hayim Chumash (prayer book and Pentateuch/Prophetic Readings) also published by the Conservative Movement.
