S’lichot Program & Service: Unifying Our Personal and Communal Teshuvah

Date: 
September 21, 2019 - 7:30pm to 10:00pm
Body: 
The 5780 High Holy Day season begins with S'lichot, when we first hear the familiar and powerful words and melodies of the Yamim Nora'im—the High Holy Days. S’lichot is always observed on the Saturday evening the week before Rosh Hashanah. We begin with a dessert reception and a reflective program focused on the iterative processes of personal and communal teshuvah and tikkun (return and repair). We then mark the separation between Shabbat and the week ahead with havdalah, followed by the beautiful S'lichot service in the sanctuary, beginning with the changing of the Torahs’ mantles into their High Holy Day white, preparing us for our own season of transformation. Everyone is welcome.
