Musings of an Orthodox Jew

Thoughts on Torah and the Jewish world today.

Translating Shnei Luchos HaBris

Ok, now to test if anyone is reading this and payign attention! LOL  No fault if no one is, its been a LONG time since I posted regularly.

So here is what I am asking:  I have two projects in mind and wonder if anyone is interested and what people would prefer to see:

1) A complete transliteration of the Shabbos service (Ma’ariv, Minchah, Shacharit) from Nusach Ashkenaz.  This one is due to the fact that recentyl I have had some people coming to shul that, while Orthodox, have largely disconnected and have trouble following the service.  The idea is to create a resource for them so they can follow easily (once downloaded and printed).  I know of the Artscroll transliterated siddur, but due to their financial difficulties they are not in a position to buy it (and refuse to accept it from me…

2)) A translation of Shnei Luchos HaBris (Teh Torah commentary by the Shlah, Rbbi Isaiah Horowitz rather than his full ethical/musar book of the same title- that I may do later but it is probably too esoteric to do) as I study it.  I will NOT include my own commentary or elucidation beyond that needed to make a clear translation

So any suggestions from out there?
