Yeshivat Lev Shalem

Yeshivat Lev Shalem: Local Sustainable Torah!


To prepare for using the new Conservative/Masorti Machzor for the Yamim Nora'im (High Holy Days) 5771, Congregation Netivot Shalom, Berkeley, California, had a program of discussions on the new Machzor. The program was coordinated by the caring team of Stephen Tobias, Edna Stewart, Rabbi Menachem Creditor, Rabbi Shalom Bochner, Marcia Brooks, and others from our precious community.  Below are audio recordings of the sessions (MP3s).  May the learning we achieve, celebrating our new Machzor Lev Shalem, carry us higher as we journey towards Yamim Nora'im 5771!
