Large Print Three Volume Set: One Rosh HaShanah and Two Yom Kippur Paperback
Mishkan HaNefesh: Machzor for the Days of Awe offers meaningful liturgy for both regular service attendees and those new to Jewish spirituality and practice. Providing an accessible guide through the journey of t'shuvah (repentance) and cheshbon hanefesh (self-reflection), it bridges the personal and the communal, as well as the ritual and the ethical dimensions of Yamim HaNoraim. From feelings of awe to moments of solace, from the solitude of contemplation to the solidarity of song and worship, Mishkan HaNefesh inspires a multifaceted experience through the High Holy Days while embracing both the rich liturgical voices of the Jewish past and the aspirations of our people today.
This oversized large print paperback edition is for those with reading impairment. Printed in three volumes to reduce the weight, this set includes one volume for Rosh HaShanah, and two volumes for Yom Kippur. The pagination matches that of the regular two volume set.
