Selichot Service & Yahrzeit Plaque Dedication

8:30 pm - 9:30 pm

For centuries, Jews have gathered in synagogues on Saturday evening near Rosh Hashanah to prepare for the sacred season of self-scrutiny and renewal on Selichot. The word comes from the Hebrew for “forgiveness” and “pardon.”

Continue the tradition with us on Saturday, August 28 at 8:30 p.m. at the Temple or via Zoom. Please join us for Havdalah, help change the Torah covers to white for the New Year, and begin the holiday season with meditative prayer and readings, led by Rabbi Meir Bargeron. We also will dedicate yahrzeit plaques added in the past year.

Please wear a mask when in the building. Please review our new COVID Safety Protocols, which include guidelines for those who are not fully vaccinated, as well as a brit (covenantal document) that we kindly ask fully vaccinated members and guests to sign.

The link for worship services on Zoom is sent in the weekly email to our Temple family. We warmly welcome guests. Please contact the Temple office for online access information at (260) 744-4245 or
