The High Holy Day season officially begins with the “Service of Pardon” known as Selichot. It takes place on the Saturday evening a week prior to Rosh Hashanah in the quiet of evening created for meditation and contemplation. This year our Service will take place Saturday evening, September 24th. In response to the multiple levels of healing needed in our world this year, our Service will feature new liturgy highlighting the healing of mind, body and soul.  Beginning at 9:30pm, we will delve into the “healing balms” of the Bible through taste and smell. At 10:00pm we will begin our prayers of forgiveness and renewal. The evening is casual in dress and comfort.
