It is the first full-length English commentary to the Mahzor of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Intended for both laypeople and scholars, it explains all of the important prayers of the High Holy Days from a liturgical, historical and philosophical point of view. The footnotes refer the reader to a wide range of scholarly literature.
