It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Siddur Eit Ratzon, a shabat sidur created by Rutgers math professor Joe Rosenstein. It’s largely used in chavurot and indie minyan settings, though I’m convinced it’s a better sidur for Reform congregations than Mishkan T’filah (though it’s not trying to be and no one believes me). Joe just told sent me an e-mail:
If you check out the list of groups that are using Siddur Eit Ratzon (it’s under “for congregations” on the website), you will find that only a handful (about 5) of the 50 listed are “chavurah and indie minyan settings”–most are in fact regular synagogues.
I have just received word from Joe that work is almost complete on his machzor, Machzor Eit Ratzon, which is very exciting.
Joe will be at Limmud NY in a couple of weeks selling SER and he’ll have a few pages from the draft of MER for people to take a look at, but he has a question: What pages do you want to see? If you were going to buy a new machzor, what would be the important pages for you to take a look at?
