SECTION INDICATORS TO HELP CONGREGANTS FOLLOW SHULE SERVICES
Do you sometimes wonder where we’re up to in the service? Do you sometimes lose the place during the service? If so, then you can get help from the PHC’s Section Indicator.
The Section Indicator is a small black stand that is placed just in front of the Rabbi’s box. It has large black numbers on it that show where we are up to in the service. To make sense from it, you need a section table like the sample below.
The section table for each siddur and machzor shows the page number in that siddur or machzor that matches with the section shown on the Section Indicator. For different siddurim and machzorim you need different section tables, which can be printed from the links below and inserted into your siddur or machzor.
For the Shabbat morning service there are section tables for the following siddurim:
Singer (All editions), Tehillat HaShem, Hertz, Metsudah,
ArtScroll & ArtScroll Transliterated, Chief Rabbi’s Siddur
Chaggim / Machzorim
There are also section tables for each festival for the following machzorim
Routledge / Adler, Russian Machzor, ArtScroll & ArtScroll Transliterated
Birnbaum (Combined volume & separate volumes)
As a PHC member you can download the relevant section tables below
The PHC recognises and appreciates the tremendous effort of Dr Norm Hoffman OAM in the conceptualisation and development of the section indicator project.
