Modern American Reform, as evidenced by Olath Tamid (1856), Union Prayer
Book (1895/6), Gates of Prayer (1975), and MishkanT'filah (2006), omit the Musaf
service altogether. The Liberal British Lev Chadash (1996) as well as the
Reconstructionist Kol Haneshamah (1996) have followed suit. Among other
approaches is the modern Israeli Reform Ha'avodah Shebalev (1982), which
adds a brief prayer entitled Zecher L'musaf (“A Remembrance of Musaf ”), stating,

service of goals larger than the articulation of a set of theoretical propositions" (xii
), he insists on the need to clarify the relationship of literature to society by
proposing an "anthropology of ...

here, finally discovers (near the end of the narrative) what this 'event' was, it is
fully evident, for the first time, why Jack is, or has had to be, the eponymous '
reconstructionist' of the narrative. It also drives home to the reader that the

out to be the central literary, intra-textual, narratological category in terms of
which the narrative thread ...

Yet his Creole stories are full of the “romance” of the Old South; and he could
write a popular Civil War romance favorable to Southern traditions like The
Cavalier (1901), based on his own experiences in the Confederate Army. Red
Rock (1898), by Thomas Nelson Page (1853–1922), portrays the
Reconstructionist government as threatening the treasured traditions and values
of Southern white society with total destruction. The book nostalgically glorifies
life in the antebellum South, ...
