Divrei Mishkan HaNefesh is like a midrash on the machzor, a "Mishkan Hanefesh Rabah." This volume serves as a springboard for entering into the sanctuary of our souls with enthusiasm and helpful insights, exegetical and homiletical material, tips and guideposts, as well as indexes of poems and biblical citations. This book focuses on the prayers and scriptural offerings included in Mishkan HaNefesh. Rubric by rubric, insights are presented with background information concerning the perspective and choices of the editors, as well as offering extra material to engage the reader. A number of brief essays, composed by members of the machzor editorial team, are also included.

This new volume is truly a treasure. Keep it as a resource, but return to it again and again for inspiration and guidance. It reminded me of how holy a task it is to prepare for and lead our communities through the Days of Awe.
