PRAY MOSTLY FROM SIDDUR KOL SASSON. I CANNOT FIND THIS PRAYER ANYWHERE . HAS THE PRAYER BEEN TAKEN AWAY FROM MODERN SIDDURIM. CAN YOU FIND IT FOR ME. I WANT O PRAY IT.GIIVE ME THE PRAYER IN HEBREW SO I CAN FIND IT. 3. GENIZAH I DON'T UNDERSTAND THOSE RABBIS WHO TELL PEOPLE TO GENISSAH EVERY OLD BOOK. I HAVE THE SIDDURIM OF THE 1900 AND THERE ARE MANY THINGS NOT IN TODAYS SIDDURIM.
1. It doesn’t make a difference and everyone should follow his community or family custom. The Sfaradim added "v’yatzmach purkanei” to add an additional prayer for a speedy redemption, and the Sfaradic congregation answers aloud a little more than the Ashkenazim in Y’hei shmei rabba, but the essence is identical. 2. The prayer is found in Hebrew in most siddurim right after birchot hashachar (the morning blessings) and is based upon the personal prayer added by R. Yehuda HaNasi (Talmud Bavli, Brachot 16b). There are variant readings with small textual differences between the different siddurim. Ayin HaRa is explained either as a mystical concept or as jealousy from neighbors, or an invasion of privacy from neighbors. 3. No rabbis force anyone to destroy old books, but only if they are no longer usable, the custom is to bury them. All the best!
