The New Siddur Program for Hebrew and Heritage is a comprehensive Hebrew language program for students in grade 1-8 that concentrates on developing the necessary Hebrew skills for students to understand, read, and use the Siddur (prayer book) alone and during religious services. The program consists of a series of textbooks and workbooks, along with auxiliary material such as posters and teacher guides. Throughout, the series provides ample practice exercises and reading sections for the student to gain a proficient grasp of the material and 'checkpoint' exercises are also found throughout which enable students to judge their own progress and grasp of the material. The program is designed for use within a Hebrew School setting. However, it can also be used effectively by homeschoolers.

The primary books in the program include: In its entirety, The New Siddur Program for Hebrew and Heritage is an excellent program for teaching the Siddur to students in both an academic and home setting. Published by Behrman House Publisher, this series provides ample auxiliary and supplemental materials that makes this series a pleasure to use by both teachers and students. It provides enough flexibility to make it useful in both full-time as well as after-school and Sunday school educational programs. In addition Behrman House has also published: Managing the New Siddur Program: The Educational Director's Guide, a guide that will help you to best tailor this program for your school or educational program.
