MARK YOUR CALENDAR FOR SELICHOT: In preparation for the upcoming High Holy Days, join us for Selichot, Saturday, September 5 with study at 8:00pm  -   “You Are Forgiven” with Rabbi Jill Berkson Zimmerman - followed by the 10:00pm service.  
With Selichot, our spiritual preparation for the High Holy Days comes into full swing.  Selichot is an opportunity to deeply explore what our tradition believes about forgiveness and how to return to our best selves.  On this night, we not only turn our Torah scrolls to the High Holy Day covers, but we turn ourselves in the direction of coming home.
We will discuss together the core stories and metaphors from our tradition that inform the entire cycle of the Holy Days.  And we will have the opportunity to delve into how those themes can support us in our own spiritual accounting.  No experience or Hebrew necessary.  Dialogue, study, and some alone time to dig deeper.
