…the Artscroll Siddur is the product of a worldview which does not reflect the values of the Modern Orthodox community and therefore cannot truly meet the needs of our community. There is no indication that congregations like ours observe Yom Ha-Atzma’ut, for example, as a day of religious significance when Tahanun is omitted and Hallel might be recited. The siddur contains no liturgy for acknowledging any lifecycle events for girls or women such as a zeved ha-bat (naming ceremony for girls) or a bat mitzvah, and does not acknowledge the ways that Modern Orthodox understandings of Jewish law provide ritual options or obligations for women (e.g. a zimmun, prayer invitation, for three or more women who eat together). Female worshippers using Artscroll siddurim find no grammatical variants such as “she-lo asani shifha” (“who did not make a maidservant”) that are contained even in much older siddurim.
