ABOUT SELICHOT – The literal definition of the Hebrew word Selichot means ‘forgiveness.’ The observation of Selichot, the traditional prayers recited in the days leading up to Rosh Hashanah, is one of the most inspirational services of the High Holy Days season.To comprehend the profound idea of forgiveness – we must seek ways to change, to reflect and to renew ourselves with others and with God during this time of the year. It is through liturgy, rituals and communal worship that can help us in this process. Learn more about the service >>
