Our services use Machzor Eit Ratzon, and the pages announced are in that prayerbook. Although the Hebrew text is similar to that in other high holiday prayerbooks, if you plan to participate in the live webcast of our services, we recommend that you obtain your own copy of Machzor Eit Ratzon through the website newsiddur.org.
