Selichot Program begins at 8:30 pm, followed by a 9:30 pm service.

The Selichot service provides us with an opportunity to intensify our cheshbon ha-Nefesh – our personal preparations for the High Holidays. Many of the prayers and melodies recited in this brief and spiritual service are the same as those recited on Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur. This year, we will once again partner with B’nai Shalom of Olney, Kehillat Shalom of Gaithersburg and Shaare Tefila for the program and service. This provides us the opportunity to stand together as agudah echat – one community –  just as the High Holiday machzor indicates. Prior to the service, we will have an opportunity to hear from Rabbi Dan Ornstein,  author of a newly published book on Cain & Abel: A Jewish Courtroom Drama.

Those wishing to read the book prior to Rabbi Ornstein’s presentation can find the book on Amazon as well as other book vendors.

To attend use this Zoom link for the Selichot speaker and service. (Note: Ma’ariv/Havdalah will be on the TI Zoom link at 8:05 pm, prior to Selichot.)
