  • Major major improvements to Sephardic/Edot HaMizrach text. We went through it in detail and cleaned a ton of it up. I am sure there will be bugs, but your feedback helped a lot. Do note that some of the feedback was specific to certain 'flavors' of this Nusach, we need to be as "generic" as possible when releasing the Siddur. So hopefully that is okay because we cannot release 30 different flavors of Sephardic text. Also, Sephardic does not have the Smart Siddur yet, we hope to add that soon...
