    Readanalyzedprayed this set as a part of a project for Ritual Committee I strongly prefer this new Reform version to the older Reform version due to accessibility Majority of pieces are actually closer to traditional in translation and throughout there are transliterations good for folks who are HHD attendees only Instead of having to turn elsewhere for the Torah readings they're included here for congregation to follow along in Hebrew and English Alternate readings too The introduction and essays and reflections are engaging and challenging though not as challenging as I might have liked Other bonuses Egalitarian related reflection readings are properly credited this has been an issue in other books produced by the same non belief is acknowledged not ignored or assumed the end of Unetanneh Tokef is re included in this one after being left out in Gates fo Repentance Other downfalls Unfortunately two volumes This means labor of switching out an entire shul's worth of books during the Days of Awe Also visually very unappealing covers although the interior is fine The Hebrew font is cursive and less block The print isn't big enough for some readers Overall though a definite improvement on Gates of Repentance
