Lost nusach of the Beit haMikdash

The Open Siddur Project

Over at The Open Siddur Project, Aharon has posted a summary of a known piece of nusach from The Temple:

Once upon a time, according to the Mishnah, it was the nusaḥ (liturgical tradition) of the Cohanim in the Bet Hamikdash[1] for the Ten Commandments to be read prior to theSh’ma.

He also gets into why we don’t read the Aseret haDibrot before the Shma any longer. It’s cool. Read it.
