This year, Saturday night, August 28th, starting 8:30 p.m., at the close of Shabbat, we will gather – on Zoom or in person – to perform the custom of “Selichot,” – taking time as a community to meditate on the year that has passed, think about the part each one of us played in it, and consider what changes we might want to make in the year ahead.
As part of our program, we will give you the opportunity to take a notecard and pencil and think about the following questions:
1. What would you have liked to change about the year that has just passed? and
2. What would you like to do, to make the year to come better for yourself, your friends and family, and your community?
We will then take some time, for those who wish, to share their answers with all of us.
After that, we will proceed into the Selichot prayers.
I believe this may well be a significant moment and I hope you will be able to join our community.
May we all be inscribed for a year filled with health, blessing, joy and peace for our planet and for us!
