Selichot at HEMS

Saturday September 01

In the Ashkenazi tradition, special prayers of repentance, called selichot, are said during the days before Rosh Hashanah, and it is customary to have an inspiring selichot service at the end of the Shabbat preceding Rosh Hashanah. Many shuls have large choral events but ours is intimate, warm and encourages participation. The music is evocative, lyrical and designed for everyone to join in. The service introduces some of the familiar melodies used during Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Each year a group of smaller Masorti communities join together for this beautiful service, which is directed by   Chazan Jacky Chernett and includes a choir made up of members of the participating shuls. This year, Selichot will be hosted by Hatch End Masorti at 9.45 pm in the Girl Guide HQ.

Contemplative Service

Friday September 07

We invite everyone to join us at 7.00 pm for Kabbalat Shabbat – our contemplative Friday Night service which invites us to leave behind the busy-ness of the week and experience the precious gift of peace (shalom), rest (menucha) and renewal (nafash) that Shabbat offers. Here is a space for quiet reflection, personal prayer, music to lift the spirit (ruach) and heart-warming translations of new and familiar prayers that help us worship in a meaningful way. If you are not familiar with Hebrew, you will find the prayers have been transliterated so you can easily follow along.  We look forward to sharing this time with you. Kabbalat Shabbat replaces the regular Liberal Friday night service this evening.
