The Saturday evening prior to Rosh Hashanah is the time to officially welcome the High Holiday season. We do so through communal study and the recitation of penitential prayers (known as selichot).

This year, Selichot falls on Saturday, September 12.

Join us via Zoom at 8:00 PM
for havdallah, learning, and a short service during which
we will hear the shofar blast for the first time.

Our study will be led by Rabbi Susan Silverman whose topic will be
"The Candle and the Mirror: God, Humanity and Expanding Light."
