- Mahzor Aram Soba

As Spanish exiles settled throughout the Middle East, the liturgy of the Mustabarim began to fall into disuse in favor of the Sephardic version of prayers. To preserve their unique liturgy, Aleppo’s Mustabari community published a siddur – the Mahzor Aram Soba – in 1527. It was reprinted in 1560, but with the passage of time, most of the Aleppan community developed a prayer service comprised of elements from both the Mustabari and Sepheradi traditions.
