We are excited to announce our new
High Holy Day Prayer Book
Mishkan HaNefesh: Machzor for the Days of Awe
We will begin using our new Reform High Holy Day prayer book this year 2015 / 5776
After we piloted the new High Holy Day prayer book last year on the second day of Rosh Hashanah, the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. After thoughtful consideration, the Jewish Life Committee and the Board have recommended congregants purchase Mishkan HaNefesh for the Reform services in the Sanctuary.
Here are some of the reasons why we are excited
about this new prayer book:
Hebrew, transliterations, and translations for every prayer
Metaphors and images of God speak to our time
Words, tone & theological range are uplifting, inviting & challenging
Meaningful liturgy to those who pray regularly, and welcomes those who are new to Jewish spirituality and practice
Draws from the deep wellsprings of Jewish liturgy, history, thought, music, interpretation and creativity
Mishkan HaNefesh values continuity and incorporates the outlook of the
21st century Reform Jewish community of North America.
