IYH this year, R' Avrohom Aumann from our Beitar branch, will be publishing a Yom Kippur Machzor according to Minhag Ashkenaz. He requested to send our newslist the following words:
We are happy to inform you that this coming year we are going to publish a new Machzor for Yom Kipur Nusach Ashkenaz with Hebrew commentary.
Currently there is no Hebrew commentary on the Ashkenaz Machzor for Yom Kippur, therefore it is quite hard to understand what one is saying.
That Machazor has many other virtues, for example: The Nusach has been corrected according to the old Machazorim, The structure of the Piyuttim is highlighted, all the Minhogim are included, and much more.
We need your donations for the publication!
The names of the donors and their relatives will be written in the Machazor.
The Zechus of hundreds of Jews that will Daven with Kavono will stand for the sponsors.
