I believe that because it doesn't have all of the feminist egalitarian changes, (even though the Conservative Movement's position is for a more egalitarian Siddur), it is far superior to the second edition, in that it keeps the original text of the prayers.
On the downside, it is a fairly heavy book to hold and the prayers sometimes run into each other, making it a little more difficult for the novice to navigate.
Overall it is a great improvement (translation wise) over the Silverman Siddur (although I miss the layout of the prayers in Silverman).
I would recommend this siddur to all.
It would be kind of a lot to handle if you had bad arthritis in your wrists or your arms were very weak. I do have a touch of arthritis but not enough to bother me when holding this book.
I wish the 95 "gender-sensitive" edition had the weekday services, as that is what I primarily need, but the 85 is quite suitable. I like it better than the Artscroll Ashkenaz siddur I had been using.

Bigger print than Artscroll but lacks the interesting prophetic and oral traditions. It is much easier to follow than Artscroll so you may want both.Published 23 months ago by R. Cooke
