(NEWS) Yom Kippur Machzor Created For Brazilian Jews

"A Yom Kippur machzor translated for the first time into Portuguese will be distributed to Jews in Brazil's Amazon.

The prayer book includes the traditional Hebrew text of the Yom Kippur prayer services, together with a transliteration and translation into Portuguese. It incorporates the customs and prayers of the Moroccan Sephardim, which were brought to Brazil in the 19th century by Moroccan Jewish immigrants."
