Mishkan HaNefesh (High Holy Day Prayer Book)

TBK uses the Mishkan HaNefesh, the Reform movement's High Holy Day prayer book.  

The books are 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 language and all Hebrew prayers available in transliteration.   There are inspired alternative options, a variety of study commentaries throughout the book, a variety of Torah reading options, and some magnificent new prayer alternatives.

Congregants are invited to dedicate set(s) of prayer books.  For each $36 donation (tax-deductible), we will include a personalized bookplate in one set of the Rosh HaShana and Yom Kippur books.  This is a very special way to honor or remember loved ones or temple friends.

God informs Abraham that Sodom and Gomorrah will be destroyed, though Abraham attempts to convince God otherwise. God tells Abraham to sacrifice Isaac. Abraham obliges but is told that it was a test of faith and offers a ram to sacrifice instead.
