That huge Siddur on the shtender was always one of the amenities for whoever stood up to fill the Chazzan’s role in Chabad Houses and Shuls. Those large black letters were easier to read, especially out loud.
Some devout fathers even purchased the pulpit-size Siddur to assist their children in developing their Hebrew reading skills and become acquainted with the prayer text at an early age.
The new 7×11” annotated Siddur Tehillat Hashem, labeled by Kehot Publication Society as the First Large-print Hebrew Edition, is an attempt to enhance those qualities.
The Hebrew text has been completely reset, and carefully corrected on the basis of a thorough study and comparison with earlier editions, identifying headings before major sections, shaded Holiday additions and marked Chazzan paragraphs.
A detailed presentation of the laws relating to the prayers has been added as an appendix called “Selected Laws and Customs.” This is in addition to the “Rulings of the Alter Rebbe” section.
Another plus, helpful for Chabad Houses who call out the pages during the prayers, has matching page numbers to the highly popular Annotated English edition, or “blue Siddur.”
