You and your congregation are invited to help be part of the ongoing study process that will lead to the new CCAR Machzor.
We're thrilled to report that over 300 congregations, as well as several Hillel groups, piloted one or more services from the new Machzor, Mishkan HaNefesh. Some congregations have used it as material for S’lichot, some used it during Yom Kippur study sessions, and some used it in actual services on Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur. We are in the process of compiling and studying all the feedback. We are very grateful to all those who are sharing their thoughts with us.
