Starting a full month before Rosh Hashanah we begin preparing ourselves for the season of atonement and forgiveness that culminates with Yom Kippur. The intensity of our preparation moves up a notch in the week before Rosh Hashanah during the night of Selichot.
Our Selichot services, this year conducted online, will be open and creative. Traditional prayers will be used to invite participants in. Everyone who is willing will be invited to bring a poem, story, song, artwork, recipe or something creative that speaks to them of forgiveness, apology, reconciliation or beginning anew. Together we will bring each other a step closer into the Season of Tshuva, of Returning to our Truest Selves.
Come with some expression to share that speaks to you of these themes: Saturday, September 12, 2020 at 8 pm on Temple Beth Shalom’s Zoom account.
