Link to Selections from the Conservative High Holy Days Services


We are using new mahzor (prayerbook) for Conservative High Holy Day Services!
After much deliberation and discussion, we believe that Mahzor Lev Shalem will significantly enhance the High Holy Day experience of our members. It is a beautiful book with gender-neutral contemporary language, accessible and poetic English translations, transliterations for those who don’t read Hebrew, and commentary that allows a much greater participation and understanding of our prayer services. As this time of the year holds much energy and expectation for most of us, we believe that it is important to do whatever we can to allow our membership to connect with the experience in a meaningful way.

Make sure to take advantage of the introductory price if you order by July 31st. You can download a letter to the community and order form here to learn more about our decision. Please note that all members must own their own prayerbooks for High Holy Day Services.
