Call for Old High Holy Day Prayer Books!!!
As you are aware, we will be using the new High Holy Day Prayer Books (Mishkan Hanefesh: Machzor for the Days of Awe) this year. In Jewish tradition, we never “throw away” a book or paper with God’s name on it. In fact, we bury our sacred books, Torahs and anything that is no longer in use but still holy and special. In the event you choose not to keep your old Gates of Repentance High Holy Day Prayer books, we will take them for you and bring them to Mt. Sinai Cemetery in Los Angeles for proper burial. The deadline for this is July 1, 2015, at which time we will be taking all out dated High Holy Day materials to be buried in the Genizah (burial site for sacred materials).
If you have not yet purchased your new High Holy Day books, I highly recommend you do so that you are able to follow along at services this year. Use this link to purchase your new books.
