Mishkan HaNefesh

Temple Emanuel began using the new Reform Movement Machzor – High Holy Day Prayerbook – four years ago for Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur. The new Machzor includes separate volumes for Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur with updated translations, full transliteration, rich commentary and a beautiful selection of poetry.

Temple Emanuel does not provide High Holy Day prayerbooks, so we encourage you to purchase a set for each adult in your household. The cost is $45 for the 2-volume set (one book for Rosh HaShanah and one book for Yom Kippur). To purchase a set of prayerbooks, fill out an Order Form and send it to the Temple Office or call the office at 301-942-2000.
