A Great Sukkot!
On Rosh Hashanna morning, Rabbi Stanway introduced the new Machzor – Days of Awe Prayerbook – that we will be using next year: Mishkan HaNefesh. This is a unique prayerbook and is a tectonic shift in the worship experience for the High Holidays with new avenues for prayer, reflection, worship and understanding the themes of the holy days of Rosh Hashanna and Yom Kippur.
You may purchase as many sets of these books as you like (one for Rosh Hashanna and one for Yom Kippur – they are sold only in sets) for $50/set. Purchasing several sets will help us to reach the temple need of 400 sets. You will also be able to dedicate as many sets as you wish. Download the order form or pick one up from the temple. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Rabbi Stanway at 732-222-3754
