Due to the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, there are understandable concerns about gathering in person this year for the High Holy Days. As we consider how to craft a meaningful High Holy Day experience in this unusual time, we are pleased – in great thankfulness to the CCAR press – to be able to provide a free online edition of our Machzor:
Open our Machzor for Rosh HaShanah here:
Open our Machzor for Yom Kippur here:
On Shabbat Shuva, we will use our regular prayerbook, which you can open here:
How do you get a physical your copy?
As many of you know, our siddur for Shabbat is available as an online flip book, which was made possible by the CCAR, to enable us to lead services via the Internet. We are sure many of you are using the flipbook, but we were wondering if you would prefer to hold your own physical copy of the Mishkan during our services and also at home.
In addition, Covid-19 has changed the way we will be able to hand out our siddurim and High Holy Day prayer books in the Shul in the coming months. The new health regulations prohibit us from sharing books or giving out loan copies at services. This means that congregants are asked to bring their own books to services.
Therefore, we came up with an offer for you to obtain your own Mishkan for Shabbat, and the Mishkan ha Nefesh for the High Holy Days: You can order them from the office, pay via EFT and pick them up from the guard house at Bet David, or, should you live in the Sandton and Northern Johannesburg area, we can organise a delivery to your doorsteps.
The Mishkan for Shabbat costs R450 and the High Holy Day set (two books) costs R700. Please send an email to Glynnis, and she will organise with you the way to get your books: 011/783-7117 firstname.lastname@example.org
