הכונו, יום הקדוש ממשמש ובא

(I received this today from Menachem Butler. I haven't seen the book yet, but חזקה על חברים שאינם מוציאים דבר שאינו מתוקן מתחת ידם. )

For decades, Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik delivered his renowned Kinnus Teshuvah shiurim between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur and selections of these shiurim have previously been published by Dr. Arnold Lustiger.

As has recently been announced in Jewish Action, the official publication of the UOJCA, K'hal Publishing in cooperation with the Orthodox Union, and through the efforts of many of the Rav's talmidim, presents "The Kasirer Edition Yom Kippur Machzor," with a complete commentary adapted from the teachings of Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik zt"l. This volume is masterfully edited by Dr. Arnold Lustiger, editor of both "Before Hashem You Shall Be Purified: Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik on the Days of Awe" (1988) and "Derashot Harav: Selected Lectures of Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik" (2003). The Kasirer Edition Yom Kippur Machzor includes, as well, an introduction by Rabbi Hershel Schachter and Rabbi Menachem Genack.

For the cover and a few sample pages of the Kasirer Edition Yom Kippur Machzor, please see http://www.ravmachzor.com/samplepages.pdf

To order your pre-publication copy of the Kasirer Edition Yom Kippur Machzor (to be delivered in advance of Yom Kippur) at the special discounted price of $24.99 + shipping (list price: $30.99 + shipping), please contact Menachem Butler, order@RavMachzor.com , for further information.

For Yeshiva University students, FREE delivery is available to any student on the Beren (midtown), Wilf (uptown), Resnick (Einstein/Ferkauf) and Brookdale Center (Cardozo) campuses of Yeshiva University for any order.

For orders of more than twenty-five copies, an additional discount and special bulk rates and free shipping are available within the continental United States.Thank you very much and I look forward to hearing from you soon,--Menachem Butler

How do they write in the הסכמות (though this certainly doesn't require my הסכמה):

גם אני את כופרו עליו וארכשנו לזכר מו"ר זצ"ל ולהתכונן בצורה הטובה ביותר לביאת יום הקדוש,צומא רבה הבעל"ט אמן.

I posted this on another blog (less in question form) but I'd like to know what you think? Is this machzor "doing right by" RYBS in having a translation and commentary of the "amitz koach" Avoda only, while relegating "atta konanta" to the back of the book untranslated?

see point 6 from the editor of the machzor - http://www.haloscan.com/comments/hirhurim/115746531811484026/#459250
