Meet Mishkan HaNefesh before the High Holy Days

September 4, 2015 - 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm


Rabbi Prosnit and Rabbi Schultz will offer a three-part series introducing our new High Holy Day Prayer Book on Fridays, August 28, September 4 and September 11 at Noon.

The series will include:

  • A brief history of prayer book reform, from the traditional machzor to the Union Prayer Book and beyond.
  • What are some of the Mishkan Hanefesh’s most significant changes, and why were they made?
  • How will some new translations affect our understanding of the classical liturgy?
  • Will the “left side of the page” readings inspire us or jar us?
  • New Torah and Haftarah Readings – should we use them?
  • Join us as we begin our preparations for the Days of Awe.
