Led by Rabbi Eliana Jacobowitz
Sunday Sept. 20 7:00-8:30 PM
The Ten Days of Repentance between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are a time for reflection, contemplation and reassessment. That spirit is often broken because of the real demands of everyday living. This evening of chanting is an attempt to hold the mood of holiness and introspection, to create a bridge between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Rabbi Eliana will teach us slichot (penitential) chants from the Sephardi tradition. As our voices join together we hope to create an environment that is supportive, forgiving, and spiritually uplifting.
