traditional liturgy for the 21st century
The first bentsher was printed in 1514, exactly half a millennium ago.
An historically-conscious work is not complete without a careful choice of type. All of the faces that we’ve employed have distinguished pedigrees that go back several centuries.
The liturgical text is the standard Ashkenaz Orthodox one. Where we’ve added language, it’s been clearly marked.
In addition to some deliberately chosen images and our carefully crafted translation, we’ve included a number of common egalitarian insertions.
While adhering to the standard liturgical text, Seder Oneg Shabbos also contains variants more relevant for celebrations between a groom and a groom, or a bride and a bride.
We could charge a premium for all this, but we decided not to, because we want as many people to have this as possible.
That’s why a single bentsher costs only $6.99 (plus shipping), you only need to buy 4 or more for our heavy discounts to kick in.
We won’t be upset if you just buy one, though.
