Editorial Reviews

www.thedailyrabbi.com
... a spiritual guide rather than "just" a prayer book...With characteristically elegant and unambiguous translations that distinguish between poetry and prose and favor an intimate, contemporary style over the distant, archaizing language of some other prayer books, Jonathan Sacks helps clear up the abstruseness and remedy the potential dryness of the liturgy...The Koren Sacks Rosh HaShana Mahzor will be a cherished and widely used prayer book for years to come.
The Jewish Tribune
Rabbi Sacks' meticulous translation of the Rosh Hashanah prayer service illuminates the authentic meaning of the Hebrew texts, while his introduction and commentary provide innovative interpretations of the service.
The Jewish Magazine
The English translation is quite readable and tones down the stilted and archaic English typical of many religious texts...It is written with the Modern Orthodox user in mind, though even the English-speaking chareidi Jew will benefit from the English translations and explanations of difficult Hebrew...makes a significant contribution to religious literature.
