Traditionally, the Selichot service is held during the hours of darkness on the Saturday night before Rosh Hashanah. This service provides an opportunity to prepare for “The Days of Awe” in a quiet atmosphere, which is enhanced by some of the music of the High Holydays.
The Liberal Service will start at 7:45 pm led by Rabbi Dabba Smith. Refreshments and a discussion session with the theme “Heal Yourself, Heal the World” will take place between 8:30 and 9:30 pm. The Reform Service will commence at 9:45 pm, led by Rabbi Middleton.
