L’Shana Tova from our Temple Beth Sholom Family.
As you are likely aware, this year’s High Holidays are being planned for remote participation due to COVID-19 concerns.
In order to make your holiday celebrations as pleasant and easy as possible, we are providing a number of options for you to acquire copies of the mahzor we will be using for all services and programs, Mahzor Lev Shalem.
Conservative Machzor for Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur with gender neutral translation and running commentaries that explain each prayer. This prayerbook includes the complete liturgy for the high holy days. An added feature is a full transliteration of all songs.
Published by the Rabbinical Assembly, Mahzor Lev Shalem is the Conservative movement’s first new machzor since 1972.
Meaningful supplemental content throughout, including contemporary Israeli and American poetry and prayers; classic piyyutim; Hasidic stories and reflections; and quotes from Abraham Joshua Heschel, Martin Buber, and leading rabbis in the Conservative movement and beyond.
Abundant thoughtful readings that focus on spiritual issues and tikkun olam.
The complete liturgy for the high holy days Transliteration of all songs. Mahzor Lev Shalem was composed and edited with a conscious awareness of the diverse backgrounds and expectations in each of our communities and, as such, it promises to open doors for every congregant. For the congregant who is familiar with the tefilla, the machzor’s running commentary presents both a historical overview and insight into the meaning of prayers. For the congregant who doesn’t know Hebrew, the English translations are close to the meaning of the original and the transliterations are plentiful. Mahzor Lev Shalem speaks to the contemporary concerns of our congregants. Yet the feel of the book is entirely traditional, and so truly represents the best of the Conservative movement. This combination of all these elements the classical and the contemporary, the historical and the spiritual speaks to the rich diversity of our communities and promises to be inspiring and relevant for years to come.
