Mahzor Lev Shalem: Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur

We will be burying the pasul unusable Sefer Torah we replaced last year along with worn out Sifrei Kodesh Sacred Books that we have in our synagogue and homes. Sometimes Sifrei Kodesh become physically worn out. Other times they are worn out because they no longer meet the spiritual needs of the community. It was first published in While still beautiful, the translation and commentary are no longer up to contemporary standards.


Siddur Lev Shalem

While the siddur includes all the traditional prayers, psalms, and songs that are familiar from previous Conservative siddurim, it serves also as an anthology, offering a wide array of readings that can be used to celebrate Shabbat as well as material for study about Shabbat: poems both ancient and modern, Hasidic wisdom, rabbinic midrashim, and commentary on the history and diversity of the liturgy. As with the mahzor, the English is a more literal translation of the Hebrew, with similar line breaks in English and Hebrew so that congregants can easily go back and forth between the two languages. In addition, all of the blessings, psalms, and songs are transliterated to enable Jews from all backgrounds to fully participate in the welcoming of Shabbat and the extensive commentary is geared to both the novice and the learned, offering both historical insight and spiritual meaning. Those attending a service for the first time -- who may have wandered in perhaps in search of something they themselves cannot name or who are attending a bar or bat mitzvah or reciting kaddish -- can now find their way into the siddur and Jewish liturgy. Those congregants who know some Hebrew can easily go back and forth between the English and the Hebrew. It includes all of the familiar psalms of Kabbalat Shabbat but also offers an earlier Friday night tradition from the Sephardic world where excerpts of Shir Ha-shirim the Song of Songs were sung as part of Kabbalat Shabbat. This allows for variety in davenning and also expands Jewish horizons when using the abundant commentary that surrounds the prayer text for study.
