MAHZORIM: YOU’RE COVERED!
Thanks to the generosity of Gayl & Alan Berger and family, you do not need to buy copies of the new High Holy Day prayer book, Lev Shalem, which we are now using. Gayl & Alan have donated 2,500 mahzorim to the congregation, to be held at the synagogue and used each year. When you come to synagogue, you will find your prayer book in the seat pocket in front of you (in the David J. Moskowitz Sanctuary) or on your seat (in Rosenthal Auditorium and at Gross Schechter Day School). We ask that you treat these books with great care and leave them in the pocket or on the seat upon completion of each service so they may be collected and stored from year to year.
We are collecting the Mahzor Hadash prayer books for donation to other shuls. Contact Rafi Simon for more information, or just bring them in.
