Selichot: Teach Us To Number Our Days

September 17 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Teach Us to Number Our Days: Finding meaning and mystery in the moments of our lives (Psalm 90:12)

Selichot is the time we begin formal preparation for the High Holy Days. A time to help us prepare ourselves for the Yamim Nora’im, the Days of Awe, which begin with the evening of Rosh Hashanah and conclude with the end of Yom Kippur. These ten days are intended for us to make an accounting of our soul or cheshbon haNefesh in Hebrew. That is the greatest challenge of the season!

7:00-7:15 pm Introduction to Selichot Evening and Song in the Sanctuary
7:15-8:00 pm Learning Session 1
8:00-8:50 pm Learning Session 2
8:50-9:30 pm Nosh in the Social Hall and Courtyard

  • Rabbi Frenkel – The Courage to Live with Uncertainty: How Judaism can help in our search for meaning in the unexpected moments of our lives
  • Rabbi David – One Plans and God Laughs: Finding predictability in an unpredictable world
