Last year Temple Emanuel began using the new High Holy Days prayer book Mishkan HaNefesh (The Sanctuary of the Soul). The new book incorporates many of the progressions that have become central to our worship - gender sensitive language, transliteration of the Hebrew, and opportunities for personal reflection and meditation. Mishkan HaNefesh brought deeper meaning and new reflections to our worship.
Hundreds of individuals made donations to dedicate our Mishkan HaNefesh books last year. We have additional prayer books that can be dedicated prior to this year’s High Holy Day observance. The cost to dedicate a prayer book set (one Rosh HaShanah and one Yom Kippur) is $75.
