How Do We Obtain Forgiveness on Yom Kippur?

The Machzor's Three Answers

Ritual, Prayer & Spirituality

The machzor for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur offers different answers to the question of how we obtain God’s forgiveness. In this session, I will discuss three answers and how they are reflected in the liturgy. The session will conclude with a discussion of what to do about an anomalous answer—that offered by Un’taneh Tokef. Issues like this are raised in the presenter’s recently published "Machzor Eit Ratzon," a traditional yet nonconventional prayerbook. (See www.newsiddur.org).

What Makes This Machzor Different?

"Machzor Eit Ratzon"

Ritual, Prayer & Spirituality

This sessions presents an overview of the presenter's recently published "Machzor Eit Ratzon," a traditional yet nonconventional prayerbook for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, designed for those seeking spirituality and meaning in prayer and for those who experience the usual machzor as an obstacle to prayer. "Machzor Eit Ratzon," like the previously published "Siddur Eit Ratzon," features new translations and commentaries, new prayers and meditations, and a complete transliteration of the Hebrew text. (See www.newsiddur.org).

A Brief History of Rosh Hashanah

How Its Liturgy Has Changed Over the Years

Ritual, Prayer & Spirituality

Last summer, I published a new prayerbook for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. "Machzor Eit Ratzon," like the previously published "Siddur Eit Ratzon," is in many ways unconventional, although it does contain the traditional liturgy. (See www.newsiddur.org for both books.) In this session, I will share some of the lessons that I learned about the development of Rosh Hashanah over the past 2500 years and how that development is reflected in the liturgy and practices of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
