Description
   Mahzor for the entire year weekday and Sabbath morning services. The text is comprised of complete prayers for Rosh Ha-Shanah, including kapparot, (15a-49b); Yom Kippur (50a-112b); Sukkot and Shemini Azeret (1-29a); Pesah (29a-66b); and Shavuot (66a-77b, 115a-128b). Together with the prayers for each festival are yozerot, Torah readings, Haftarot, and Megillot. Printed with the text of the prayers are instructions and halakhot and at the bottom of many of the pages is a detailed commentary entitled Hadrat Kodesh explaining the meaning of words and concepts set in Vaybertaytsh (fonts used primarily, although not exclusively, for Yiddish books), “so that everyone will understand, men, women, adults, and children.”

The volume is cleverly dated מחזור לי"נ וגם המועדים (575=1818), that is, Mahzor for the Yamim Nora'im (high holy days) and Festivals
