Why wait until the New Year to make a change for the better? Join us for Selichot, a night made for turning: Turning over a new leaf, Turning a life around, Turning a hard life into a life of compassion.
Join us Saturday night right here at BSBI as we prepare to turn the New Year into something special. The program begins September 16th at 8:00 PM with music by harpist Debbie Vinick with special music for the holidays. We will then have a special service as we change our Torah Mantles to their Holiday Whites. Finally, we will have a special service of Selichot, of Forgiveness, featuring the music of our own Cantor Bolts, readings collected by Rabbi Konigsburg and participation by all those in attendance.
Selichot is the official start of the Yamim Noraim, the Days of Awe, the High Holy Day period on the Jewish calendar. Traditionally it was held at midnight to show that we wanted to begin the cycle of penitence and forgiveness at the first possible moment.
Please join us as we open the gates to begin the spiritual journey that takes place over the Days of Awe.
