Additional High Holy Day Activities:

SELICHOT - Saturday, September 21, 2019 at 6 PM

Selichot, (forgiveness), is the evening we begin to prepare spiritually for the Days of Awe.  This year we will screen the award-winning movie “Never Again is Now,” including Q & A with filmmakers Dr. Evelyn Markus and Rosa Zeegers. “Never Again Is Now” is a documentary about the troubling rise of global anti-Semitism.

This will be followed by our Selichot service and changing of our Torah covers to their white High Holy Day covers.
