Seder Chazzanut describes the unique nusach of the Amsterdam Portuguese community, as used in the Esnoga. Up till 1950, various hand-written booklets existed, made by chazzanim and shamashim for their own use. 

This site aims to bring together the “what and when” from the old manuscripts, with the “how” from  recordings in a multi-media way.

The first pages of this site found their origin in a demonstration of the possibilities and were made in Dutch. To open our unique nusach to a wider audience, it was decided to publish the site in English. Existing Dutch pages will be replaced in due time.
