During the month of Elul, the shofar is sounded each weekday morning, awakening us to the period of reflection on the past year and helping us to begin the proess of teshuvah (returning) as the New Year approaches. The Selichot service on Saturday night introduces many of the themes of the High Holidays as it encourages us to make a commitment to change for the better in the New Year.
- 8:00 p.m. – Havdalah followed by a program in the spirit of the season
- 10:00 p.m. – Selichot service led by Rabbi David Minkus and Cantor Rachel Rosenberg
