The Koren Rosh Hashanah Heb/Eng Machzor: You’ll see it here first!

I’m working on a thing for JTA about this year’s new machzors. It’s due at the end of the end of July, but the Koren people told me their new Hebrew/English RH Machzor wouldn’t be ready until August 1, so I couldn’t get a review copy in time. But then I got this email from them:

Just found out the final version of the Mahzor will be ready at the printers tomorrow. So we’ll send you one literally hot off the presses (you’ll be the first person in the US to have a copy!) Look forward to your review…

That’s right, folks–you’ll see it here first.

    A shondeh! Giving the first copy to someone who won’t wear a kipa when he reads it! By how much will this delay the arrival of the Moshiach?

  3. we got the advance review copy last week…

  4. Without changing a word? What about changing “ha-yosheiv” to “yosheiv”?

  5. I’m also noticing, from the screenshot, that they did not switch the order of “tithallal/titbarach/titromam/titkadash,” which Artscroll does there.

  6. I do know that Nusach Sfard does it all year round…but that doesn’t really explain Nusach Ashkenaz switching for the yamim noraim (and apparently, neither does Koren).
