Selichot Service

Selichot Graphic_2wide.jpg

This year, join us for a traditional observance of this service.

Selichot is an essential element in traditional Jewish preparation for the Yamim Noraim. The service is comprised of some familiar elements from the daily service and some familiar elements from the liturgy of Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah as well as some piyyutim (liturgical poems) special to the occasion. At Selichot we take up the special melodies of the Yamim Noraim.

In the days of Rabbi Lew (z'l) the observance of Selichot was a hallmark. This year we are returning to a more traditional observance led by Henry Hollander and Rabbi Ain, who will be joined by Cantor Avyatar Alfassi from Congregation Anshey Sfrad, and by musician Jeremiah Lockwood. We will attempt to recover a more direct dialogue with G-d in our prayers, in community.

DATE: September 1
TIME: 11 p.m.
PLACE: Gronowski Family Chapel
