S’lichot and Tashlich Programs

S’lichot Healing Service: A Sacred Time for All

Saturday, September 21 at 7:30pm.

The observation of S’lichot, the traditional prayers recited in the days leading up to Rosh Hashanah, will be held at Temple Adat Elohim.

One of the most inspirational services of the High Holy Days season is the S’lichot service which will take place on Saturday night, September 21. Join us at 7:30 PM for a video and a discussion on Restorative Justice as a tool for forgiveness and healing. At 9:00pm our traditional S’lichot Healing Service with the TAE Chorale will begin.

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.

During our service, we will witness the ritual of changing the Torah covers to the white ones, congregants will be invited to lead readings, our clergy will offer private blessings on the bimah to anyone who wishes to receive them. In addition, this is a unique opportunity to gather together during this sacred time of healing and meditation as we prepare ourselves to enter the upcoming High Holy Days season of 5779.

“Tashlich” service is the symbolic casting of sins into the water and is to be held on Monday, September 30, at 5:00pm.

The TAE community invites you to join us, along with Jewish communities around the globe, in this generations old ritual where we gather as a community on the First Day of Rosh Hashanah at bodies of water and recite the Tashlich Prayer, which consists of selected chapters of Tehillim (Psalms) and the verses shown above, to symbolize our wish to get rid of our sins, and to be forgiven by God.
