A series of Selichot (“supplication”) prayers, recited in preparation for the “Days of Awe” of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
The actual Selichot are a collage of Torah verses and poetically written Hebrew works in which we ask G‑d to forgive us on a personal and communal level. An oft-repeated phrase is the “13 Attributes of Mercy,” which G‑d revealed to Moses at Sinai as the key to forgiveness. This is the core of the entire service .
Join us for a Midnight prayer, Saturday night, August 28 at 11pm for L’chaims and refreshments. Selichot at 1:00am.
