Selichot - Preparing Body and Soul for New Year


Preparing Body and Soul for

the New Year


Temple Hillel B’nai Torah

120 Corey St.

September 16th

8:30 – 10:30pm

With Selichot on the Saturday night before Rosh Hashanah, we begin our journey into the Aseret Yamei Teshuvah, the Ten Days of Turning.  This year, we will host Reconstructionist Congregation Dorshei Tzedek and Shir Hadash to nourish our bodies as well as our souls for the New Year.    

 We will learn about the Sephardic custom of the Rosh Hashanah “seder,” and make some of the traditional Sephardic foods associated with beginning the New Year on an auspicious note.  The evening starts with havdalah at 8:00pm, followed by cooking, learning and eating! Those who prefer not to cook will be tasked with jokes and puns, and will still get to eat the goodies.
