While most Jewish services are held during the day or evening, there’s one exception. High Holiday Selichot services are late at night or in the wee hours of the morning. They are a soul-stirring introduction to the Days of Awe, utilizing some of the same melodies and words from Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur services. During the Selichot service, we ask God to forgive us on a personal and communal level. The core of the service is the moving chant of the “Thirteen Attributes of Mercy”. We hope you join us for Selichot at Keneseth Israel on Saturday night, September 1, starting at 10:00 p.m.
