As part of the Open Siddur Project a free-culture initiative and digital humanities project to digitize Jewish liturgy and encode its semantic data in an open standard XML format, we are exploring using Wikisource as the transcription and proofreading platforms for ultimately encoding multilingual, BiDi texts into TEI XML.

This transcription and proofreading project begin when J.B. Hare of the Internet Sacred Text Archive scanned a copy of the Standard Prayer Book (1915), an adaptation of the Authorised Daily Prayer Book of the United Hebrew Congregations of the British Empire (translated by Rabbi Simeon Singer, and popularly known as the Singer Siddur), and transcribed it. (J.B. Hare's proofread text for pages 1-339 is also available at here.)

We hope to complete J.B. Hare's transcription of the original English edition of Rabbi Singer's prayerbook, by proofreading his text and by including Singer's masterful commentary, posthhumously edited and prepared by Israel Abrahams. Aharonium (talk) 16:08, 20 June 2012 (UTC)
