Selichot

We invite you to join us as we begin the spiritual odyssey of the High Holy Days as a community.

This year’s Selichot concert will bring Russian-born guitarist Vladimir Fridman to WHC with a program that blends instrumental music and songs from around the world with his own compositions. The Selichot liturgy contains some of the finest Jewish religious poetry ever composed, and our moving, inspiring candlelit service urges us to reflect on the year that is ending.

With strains of the High Holy Day melodies and the beautiful voices of Cantors Manevich and Bortnick to guide us, we utter our first confession of the season, as well as Sh'ma Koleinu, asking God to hear our voices.

The evening will begin and end with elegant receptions.
