Home > Events > Worship > Selichot Concert & Service
Elul, the Hebrew month of reflection before the High Holy Days, culminates with Selichot, when we gather and recite prayers of penitence as a community. 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, our rabbis, and the beautiful voices of Cantor Bortnick and Cantorial Intern Reinstein to guide us, we will utter our first confession of the season, as well as Sh’ma Koleinu, asking God to hear our voices.
