Booklet: Ma'ariv for Yom Ha'atzma'ut

This year, our community is adopting the Israeli nusach tefilah for Yom HaAtzma’ut. As only Koren Publishers includes this in their prayerbooks, and we’re not ready to start replacing our Artscroll siddurim, I have compiled and typeset the necessary texts for Wednesday night’s evening service in a handy booklet.

I have long felt that there ought to be more free and open siddur materials, so in that spirit, I am offering it for download with a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial license.

The booklet is made for printing on 8.5”×11” paper in landscape orientation to be folded and saddle-stitched. I find that bringing a specimen with me to Staples can be very helpful to explain the right-to-left Hebrew orientation. At this time, the booklet’s text is Hebrew with English headings and instructions. In the future, I would like to produce a version with a full English translation. (If you would like to offer your own public domain translation of any part, please be in touch.)

The contents are as follows:
