Mahzor Lev Shalem

With your help, we have introduced Mahzor Lev Shalem, the Conservative movement’s newest High Holy Day prayer book, at Rosh Hashanah 5777/2016. This mahzor was developed by our leading contemporary rabbis and scholars, and it’s a powerful and engaging new translation that’s also fully egalitarian.   By clicking on this link you can view sample pages illustrating some of the new features which include:

  • Supplementary readings for those looking to engage the text beyond prayer. 
  • An inviting and creative graphic design. 
  • Transliteration of key Hebrew prayers and phrases allowing more participation.
  • A fully egalitarian text including the appropriate blessings for the matriarchs and patriarchs.

In Judaism, we believe in the body and the soul. We had a holy Temple and a Mishkan, but without the Cohanim and Leviim, the Priests and Levites, performing Avodat Kodesh, holy service, God would not have been able to dwell in the community. Purchasing these mahzorim is a step in the direction of increasing holiness through improving our prayer service.

As we look forward to incorporating this new mahzor into our Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services, we turn to you, our congregants and friends, for support. To participate in the Mahzor Project, please complete the form below. You can also print and complete the form and mail with your donation.

For each mahzor that you sponsor, a book plate will be affixed including the name of the donor and/or the name of anyone you wish to honor.
