Join Us for a Community Selichot!
Saturday, September 16, 7:45 p.m.
Selichot is a ritual gathering on the Saturday night before Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. It provides an opportunity for spiritual preparation so that we can make the best use of the time that the High Holy Days gives to us for self-reflection and change. The core of the ritual consists of a series of poems and prayers. Our Community Selichot will end with a beautiful, reflective ritual.
As part of the evening, the Rabbis and Cantors from our Jewish Federation area will lead a choice of short workshops providing opportunities to study texts, themes of the High Holy Days, music and spiritual practices to help make your High Holy Days more meaningful. Workshop sessions facilitated by Rabbi Fellman, Rabbi Swartz, Rabbi Cohen, Rabbi Gurevitz, Rabbi Rudnick and Cantor Reef-Simpson.
