Selichot: Teshuvah through Music
Saturday, September 1st, 8:00 p.m.
According to the Rambam, there are four steps to teshuvah (repentance) to help us connect with God: regret, cessation, confession, and resolution. The completion of these acts is known as teshuvah gamurah, or “complete return.” Each of these powerful steps will be explored with Rabbi Joshua Dorsch and Cantor Hanan Leberman will share a musical connection as well.
We’ll begin with Havdalah, followed by our learning and musical program. Following, we’ll enjoy some desserts and conclude with our Selichot Service.
Our service will be led by Rabbi Joshua Dorsch and Cantor Hanan Leberman.
The Selichot service embraces penitential poems and prayers which we recite in the time leading up to the High Holy Days. God’s Thirteen Attributes of Mercy are a central theme throughout these prayers.
