Mishkan HaNefesh letter

The TBK Board of Trustees followed the recommendation of the Religious Practices Committee and has purchased the Reform movement’s new High Holy Day prayer book, Mishkan HaNefesh. This book will be a valuable tool for innovation in our Rosh HaShana and Yom Kippur experience. The language in the books is modern and accessible, with gender neutral wording and all Hebrew prayers available in transliteration.  There are inspired alternative options, a variety of study commentaries throughout the book, Torah reading options, and some magnificent new prayer alternatives.

Please support the purchase of the new books your donation.  We send this request in lieu of the annual Tsedakah appeal. With your generosity, we will be able to make this important change in the worship life of our congregation. For each $36 donation (tax-deductible), we will include a personalized bookplate in one set of the Rosh HaShana and Yom Kippur books. If you would like more information, please contact the TBK office at 244-7060.
