Koren Rosh Hashana Mahzor

The Koren Rosh HaShana Mahzor is a new Rosh HaShana prayer book with introduction, translation and commentary by Chief Rabbi Lord Sacks. The Koren Rosh HaShana Mahzor marries the sophisticated graphic approach for which Koren Publishers Jerusalem is renowned with the insight and eloquence of the Chief Rabbi.

The Koren Rosh HaShana Mahzor brings out the power of the Rosh HaShana prayers by aligning the Hebrew and English texts, highlighting key words, distinguishing poetry from prose, and using beautiful founts designed by master typographer Eliyahu Koren. Chief Rabbi Sacks’s translation brings readers closer than ever before to the authentic meaning of the Hebrew text, while his introduction and commentary provide new ways of understanding and experiencing the Rosh HaShana service.

The Koren Rosh HaShana Mahzor is available in a US Edition and a special Minhag Anglia Edition, created with Dayan Ivan Binstock of the London Beth Din.
