Selichot Program

Join the temple community as we prepare for the Days of Awe.  Our first service is a service of preparation called Seilichot which means 'Forgiveness'.  Selichot will take place on September 24 at 8:15 pm and we will begin with Havdallah, have an informal short service of reflection, continue with refreshments, a movie with the theme of change and growth and end with a discussion about some of the movie's themes.  This is a very moving and beautiful ceremony enhanced by the music of Cantor Camhi, a creative service, fantastic and creative refreshments prepared by Stella Stanway, the feeling of community and the reflections of the Days of Awe.  There is no charge, of course, and you are welcome to bring a friend.  Please let us know you are coming by calling the temple at 732-222-3754.
