There is a long tradition of bentshers “borrowing” graphics from other books—both Jewish and otherwise.
We’ve continued that tradition (legally, of course).
An historically-conscious work is not complete without a careful choice of type. All of the faces that we’ve employed have distinguished pedigrees that go back several centuries.
The liturgical text is the standard Ashkenaz Orthodox one. Where we’ve added language, it’s been clearly marked.
In addition to some deliberately chosen images and our carefully crafted translation, we’ve included a number of common egalitarian insertions.
In addition to the full Birkat HaMazon (Grace after Meals) text, includes:
We could charge a premium for all this, but we decided not to, because we want as many people to have this as possible.
That’s why a single bentsher costs only $7.50 (plus shipping), you only need to buy 4 or more for our heavy discounts to kick in.
We won’t be upset if you just buy one, though.
Available for weddings, bar/bar mitzvahs, university campuses, retreats, etc.
Featuring your custom images and/or images.
Significant discounts are available. No custom order is too small.
