Additional Piyyutim for Use on the Yamim Noraim
Although Mahzor Lev Shalem contains many more piyyutim than was true of the previous RA mahzor, several rabbis, cantors, and lay leaders have requested three additional piyyutim. We are happy to be able to satisfy these requests and are publishing them online in a downloadable format. For convenience of use, the page setup is the same as that found in Mahzor Lev Shalem.
Omnam ken is recited as part of the selihot of the Kol Nidre evening service. It is the only piyyut to have been written in England that has entered the traditional mahzor. Its author, Yom Tov Yitzhak of Joigny was martyred at York.
