A Walk through Mishkan HaNefesh: getting to know our new High Holiday prayer book

Rabbi Harari, Gayle Weil, and Carole Fefferman will walk through the new machzor, noting changes from the familiar text of Gates of Repentance, and helping participants to learn how to navigate the new volumes.  We will also answer questions about the new prayer book, and help to make the transition to it as smooth and easy as possible.
