Corrections to Rav Soloveitchik Machzorim

Dr. Arnold Lustiger sent me the following corrections to the Rav Soloveitchik Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur Machzorim, that were incorporated into the latest printing (see also this post).

Corrections to First Printing of the Mesoras Harav Rosh Hashanah Machzor

  • page xxvi– ten lines from bottom replace “in one of his recorded letters” with “in a letter attributed to the Rambam”

  • page xlv – Hanhagah 2 should read “Different traditions…to pronounce it as zeicher as quoted by R. Chaim of Volozhin in his Shaarei Rachamim, and the latter, to pronounce it as zecher is presented in the sefer Maaseh Rav.” The hanhagah as printed has the sources reversed.

  • page li – Hanhagah 35 – Insert “(Notes of R. Isaiah Wohlgemuth)”

  • page 20 – Eliminate “(see hanhagos harav 26)”

  • pages 22, 454, 664 - zeicher instead of zecher in Ashrei (change as well in Yom Kippur Machzor, pp. 6, 307, 506, 770)

  • page 211, 2nd paragraph - Change translation “Whoever sits Hidden on High” to “The Most High dwells in Concealment”. Change translation in comment on p. 210 as well (make change in Yom Kippur machzor on pages 290-291 as well)

  • page 237, line 5 - Change translation “This is My God and I will build Him a sanctuary” to “This is my God and I will make myself like Him”. Change translation in comment on page 236 as well. (make change in Yom Kippur machzor on pages. 316-317)

  • page 405, 14 lines from top - Change “Asher” to “Alter” Blau

  • page 467 - Insert this sentence in commentary 15 lines from the top, after the words “Malchuyos as well”: “ Thus, the Rav infers that this disagreement goes beyond liturgy into the realm of eschatology” :
