UPJ congregations throughout Australia, New Zealand and Singapore are preparing to use for the first time our long-awaited new machzorim, Mishkan T'shuvah, for the High Holy Days. We are truly grateful for the years of work by the Editorial Team co-led by Rabbi Jonathan Keren-Black and Rabbi Dr John Simon Levi AM and our hard-working Business Group. The machzorim have been delivered to UPJ congregations, ready to inspire our prayers on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
