A traditional prelude to the High Holidays, Selichot is part of the season of turning, a transition which calls for focus and readiness. The evening begins with a meal at 6:00 p.m. This meal serves as the congregation’s official welcome to all who have affiliated in the previous calendar year. The evening will culminate with an hour-long service which introduces the motifs of the High Holidays and sets the musical mood of the liturgy. It is punctuated by the blowing of the shofar by a group of volunteer shofar blowers. Reservations for this meal may be made by calling the Synagogue office or using the module below.
