Seforim Discovery - Earliest Printing Of The Alter Rebbe's Siddur

(Image courtesy of

Shturem reports:

"This week one of the prominent shluchim in Europe discovered one of the first copies of the Alter Rebbe's Siddur printed in Slavita in 1836. This is a very important and invaluable discovery."

* Thanks to my friend Yitz of Heichal Hanegina for bringing this to my attention. I plan to post more on the topic of siddurim on Monday.

That's really great. It should be the sidur with kavonoys which is so rare because it contained many errors and wad recalled. (And afterwards it was never reprinted with kavonoys). That's why there were no copies found until now.

It has a hascomo of Terhovitzer Maggid zy"o (a talmid of the Rebbe zy"o).

I just saw a year - 5596 - 1836. That should be either an intentional error (common thing) or this is not the first sidur I was talking about. That one was printed during the life of Baal haTania ztz"l.

Thanks for providing all the background on this. You are a true maven on seforim! Unfortunately, I do not know anymore of the details.
