Selichot

Toward the end of the month of Elul, a week before Rosh Hashanah on Saturday night, we will recite selichot.

These prayers and poetry on the theme of forgiveness are meant to inspire us to begin the process of asking forgiveness — from God, from our loved ones, from ourselves — for whatever we did wrong in the past year.

Save the date! Selichot will be held at Washington Hebrew Congregation on Saturday evening, September 21. Details to follow.
