Only for kids? I've never seen that before. I would be interested in seeing a source.
The old sidurim had it written in Yiddish, most new ones including kaftor voferach, mesivta, hameforosh, say its for kids.

It’s the sefer  kitzur shilah (printed several hundred years ago) who actually states that these pesukim should not be said by adults. Indeed they are not found in most of the older siddurim. (Interestingly, modeh ani itself, which is brought down in the poskim, did not make it into the siddur until the late 1500’s, when it’s nussach was authored. Other versions were composed in later siddurim, but the original one was adopted by most siddurim. Although the yerushalmi has a tefilla that shares the beginning of modeh ani it has little resemblance to the modeh ani that was introduced to siddurim a little over 400 years ago.). The siddur Ateres Yerushalayim says that there are those who are opposed to saying ראשית חכמה etc. since one should not say pessukim prior to bircas hatorah, which presumably is why the kitzur shilah was opposed to it as well.


Thanx. The kitzur shlah quotes the posuk torah tzivah, which is really a gemara, where did reishis chochma and shema bni come from?
Author of modeh ani is the seder hayom, lived in safed about 400 years ago. It's quoted in magen Avraham siman 4, there's another version from the yerushalmi quoted in the first biur halacha.

Where is the source to say the pesukim ראשית חכמה  and so on ?
Is it only for kids as mentioned in some sidurim or adults as well ?

Cheaper taxes is by making an IB account and transferring your BA there. IB account needs to be open for 90 days before it can accept BA transfers.

Or you can transfer Amex / Chase straight into there.
thanx, but thats only to the usa etc, theres something for ba avios accounts as well
