Machzor Loan Program 2020

Per our current guidelines, attendees are required to bring their own machzorim to services. Machzorim will not be available for distribution at the time of services.  For those who do not have their own machzorim (which are also available locally for purchase at Westside Judaica), we are offering loans of CRO machzorim for the holidays, which must be picked up prior to Rosh Hashanah.

Click here to access the machzor loan form. The deadline is September 9th.
