To the Masorti Movement which has published the first Masorti prayerbook for Yom Kippur. The “Machzor Pote’ach Sha’ar,” which means “Opening the Gate,” has been designed to “open the gates of prayer” by revealing the deeper meaning of the Yom Kippur service. The new prayerbook follows the innovative design and commentary of the Masorti “Siddur Va’ani Tefillati,” the movement’s official weekday and Shabbat prayerbook. For more information, go to

To the Conservative Yeshiva which introduced this past Sukkot a new project of Torah learning: “Daf Shevui.” The new study program delivers the Talmudic “daf” in six daily bite-size study selections per week for use in synagogue study groups and other such shared learning experiences.
