Birkhat Avot includes all the prayers and blessings as established by the sages, prophets, and Anshe Kenesset ha-Gedolah, and after them the rabbis of Erez Israel and Bavel. Printed with the siddur is Siftei Kohen which explains the prayers according to the peshat (literal meaning) according to the sages of the Talmud and their midrashim. This is done in such a manner that nothing is duplicated or unnecessary, and all in accordance with the teachings of the Malbim (R. Meir Loeb Ben Jehiel Michael Malbim, 1809–1879). The title page is followed by an introduction, verse in praise of the work from R. Isaiah Zev Worsofky of New York and from R. Mordecai ha-Levi av bet din of Kalvaria. The siddur is comprised of the liturgy in square vocalized Hebrew at the top of the page and the commentary, Siftei Kohen, below it in rabbinic letters.
