Digest of Jewish prayers and blessings
The collection includes the most essential of prayer for the person who starts to keep the commandments of the Torah.
In addition to the Hebrew text and its translation into Russian, is given a transliteration of the prayers and blessings in Russian letters. Moreover, the basis is chosen pronunciation of Hebrew, which is recognized as the official language in the Land of Israel, but this pronunciation is somewhat different from that in the range of religious Jews, who came from communities in Eastern Europe.
The name of the Almighty in our collection is pronounced A-don, although among the Hasidim and representatives of the "Lithuanian direction" they say - A Dona. How do you - check with your rabbi.
Note to record the Hebrew text in Russian letters: the letter "e" is almost always indicated by a short vowel sound of unstressed corresponding Hebrew sound "Sheva-on." It should be pronounced fluently without an accent.
The fifth letter of the Hebrew alphabet, we will not denote. In fact, it is pronounced as Ukrainian "g" and English "h". We do this for two reasons: firstly, in the Russian language there is no sign for this sound: the second, you better not say at all, than to pronounce correctly.
