Nehalel Shabbat Siddur | Review, Sale & Giveaway

Nehalel Be Shabbat

If you don’t have the Nevarech benscher, you’ve certainly seen it on a friend’s Shabbat table. You may not know it by name, but you know the one I mean. The one with all those gorgeous pictures?

The publishers of that ever-popular benscher have recently released their newest creation — a similarly styled Shabbat siddur called Nehalel Be Shabbat.

When the publishers sent me an advance copy for review, my husband immediately scooped it up and “offered” to do the review. (In which “offered” equals stated as unequivocal fact.)


So, without further adieu, here’s what my husband had to say:

This new siddur is fantastic. The pictures are beautiful and very inspiring. I actually like this far more than the benscher, which my wife always liked, but I found a bit over the top.

I really recommend reading the essays at the beginning of the siddur; I got a lot out of them. They helped to set the framework for using this siddur as part of your Shabbat davening.

The publishers obviously put a lot of thought into how to gain inspiration and connection in your davening; they recommend using the pictures as a guide to help you reach that — but caution that they are a means to an end, not an end to themselves.

I have discovered, after using the siddur for a couple of months, that it’s really best to use it occasionally – as a way to keep your davening fresh.

My only critique is that it doesn’t fit comfortably in my tallit bag and it’s a bit heavy – but those things aren’t a major deal-breaker, especially for all the plusses of this siddur.

I look forward to seeing what product they come out with next!


As you can tell, the siddur was a resounding hit with my husband. And I can see it being a great addition to just about any family’s home. Think: Yom tov host or hostess gift!

It would also make a wonderful present for a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, or a child heading off to Israel for the year (or college).  Even for younger children, it’s a great gift. I know my “visual learner” loves snuggling up next to daddy for davening when he’s using this siddur.

Because I just knew you’d love it, I’ve partnered up with the fine people at Nehalel to offer an exclusive sale for KOAB readers:

    I learn from each machzor or siddur I read. I have learned a great deal, enough to realize how much more there is for me to learn and understand.

  5. We have the nevarech bentcher, which we love. This looks really beautiful. very inspiring!

  6. I’m a subscriber, thanks!

  7. Shalom, I am going through conversion classes right now and have been overtaken by the Jewish culture. The presence of community and the indulgement in history has been sincerely moving. As a newcomer to KOAB and judaism I do not have a siddur, yet. I am a medical resident and basically taking in as much information as possible through my new Jewish friends and family. I would love the Nehalel Shabbat siddur to start and continue my life long journey of learning.

  13. Fresh out of the mikvah orthodox convert here and I always have my eyes open for resources to help me connect through prayers that are not in my mother tongue. This looks like just that kind of resource!

  14. I already try to just use different siddurim from time to time to improve my concentration – I love the way the pictures in the bencher add a new dimension to the process, I would love to see what they do in the siddur!

  15. I follow kosher on a budget on facebook

  16. My husband and I used the Nevarech benscher for our wedding. He loves that the pictures are of Israel. I love how the pictures (and translations) beautifully illuminate the meaning. I would love to surprise him with the matching siddur.

  17. This siddur looks beautiful and I’d love to share it with my children to help them develop an appreciation for the words they say when they daven.

  22. Id love to win this siddur, because my 11 year old son mentioned that with his significant reading challenges he finds davening really hard to do. He mentioned that he loses focus because the words are so hard for him to say. With this siddur the pictures are so thought provoking he can stay with the tefillah and think his own thoughts and ideas and prayers. Thanks for the opportunity
