The first new Reconstructionist High Holy Day prayer book to be published since 1948, the Mahzor is an inclusive, comprehensive volume for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services; one that is rooted in the traditional Hebrew liturgy, yet fully contemporary. Some of the most prominent features of this volume are:
All readings appear within the text, simplifying the selection of material for services.
Constructed with a special strong, reinforced library quality binding.
Printed on very thin, lightweight opaque paper.
A new section, Kabbalat Hashanah, has been created to begin the erev Rosh Hashanah service.
For Rosh Hashanah, the Mahzor can be used for a traditional shofar service and full Musaf, or combining the two in several different ways.
On Yom Kippur, the Musaf service and Martyrology are integrated with the Avodah service creating a powerful, seamless whole.
