S’lichot - Seeking Our Better Angels Saturday, September 1 7 PM Program · 8 PM Reception 8:30 PM Service with the TBT Choir

For many Jews, the High Holiday season begins with Rosh Hashanah and the start of the new month of Tishrei. Jewish tradition, however, teaches that the preceding month of Elul is a time of soul-searching and reflection to prepare oneself for the magnitude of the Days of Awe. It is during this time that we observe S’lichot. In the broadest definition, selichot are penitential prayers said before and during the High Holidays and other fast days throughout the year. And especially, the Saturday evening before Rosh Hashanah, a special service happens that is filled with prayers of repentance.
