High Holiday Prayerbook Donation Opportunity
The Ritual Practice Committee is pleased and excited to announce that Congregation Beth Israel will be purchasing the new machzor (High Holiday Prayerbook), Mishkan Hanefesh. The committee, along with our clergy and lay leaders, has performed an extensive review over the last two years and is excited to begin using the new machzor beginning with Rosh Hashanah 5776, September, 2015. In order to be prepared for the High Holy Days this year, we will be ordering the books very soon.
Mishkan Hanefesh is being printed as a two volume set, one volume for Rosh Hashanah and another for Yom Kippur. We are encouraging the donation and dedication of a set or multiple sets for the Congregation. This provides a dedicatory opportunity to celebrate a simcha, recognize a friend or relative with a special honor, or memorialize a loved one in a life-enhancing way. Each set you donate will be dedicated with a book plate with the inscription of your choice before taking its place as a vehicle for meaningful worship for all who use it.
In addition, we are offering the opportunity for Congregation Beth Israel members and friends to purchase a set for the use of each family member who will attend CBI services during the holidays.
The discounted cost for each two volume set is $36, whether for private purchase or for donation. Each set you donate will include a bookplate acknowledging your gift to CBI and, if you desire, with a dedication in memory (or in honor of) a loved one (or a significant other) or on the occasion of a simcha.
On behalf of the Ritual Practice Committee of CBI, I invite you to consider participating in this important effort to offset the cost of CBI's new High Holy Days prayer book acquisition. You may use the attached link to give us the required details of your dedication and your personal purchase.
In advance, I thank you for generously participating in this significant acquisition.
Chairman, CBI Ritual Practice Committee
