Community-wide Selichot Service

Please join us in participating in a community-wide Selichot program and service on Saturday, September 1st, 2018 at Congregation Beth Torah, 6100 W. 127th.

The Selichot service will begin at 10:10 p.m. and is designed to help worshipers begin to spiritually prepare for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Selichot is an opportunity to examine one’s deeds of the past year, directing one’s heart and mind to the process of teshuvah, and seeking forgiveness. Some of the prayers and music found in the Selichot service are taken from the High Holy Day liturgy, thus providing a musical transition between the “old year” and the New Year.

8:00 p.m. – Dessert reception
8:45 p.m. – Havdalah
9:00 p.m. – Program
10:10 p.m. – Selichot Service/Concert

The evening will begin with a dessert reception at 8:00 p.m. and will be followed by Havdalah at 8:45 p.m. At 9:00, Rabbis will present Learning, Reflection and Song as they reflect and discuss how they spiritually prepare for the High Holy Days. Whether it is quiet meditation, doing teshuvah, cooking a special holiday meal or exploring the Machzor, our clergy will share their thoughts on how they stay centered, how what they do impacts others and how they approach repentance and forgiveness.

The Selichot service will begin at 10:10 p.m. and is designed to help worshipers begin to spiritually prepare for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
