Selichot - Forgiveness

  • Peninsula Temple Beth El 1700 Alameda de las Pulgas San Mateo, CA, 94403 United States

7:00 pm     Study Session with Rabbi Dennis Eisner
8:00 pm     Service with Elana Jagoda Kaye and Our Clergy

Elul, the month preceding Rosh Hashanah, 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 Selichot (in Hebrew, forgiveness). Together we will delve into the Selichot liturgy and prepare our souls and minds for forgiveness. Experience a moving and beautiful service of music, poetry, and prayer, beginning with Havdallah and ending with the sounding of the shofar as we enter the Days of Awe.

At this time we publicly change the covers of our Torahs from their everyday blue to white as we symbolically change our souls in preparation for the Days of Awe. Refreshments will follow the evening's program.

Refreshments will be served following the evening's program.
