Selichot is a special service that occurs on the Saturday evening prior to Rosh Hashanah. Selichot generally includes a study component as well as worship. During the service, it is traditional to change the Torah mantles to white, representing purity and the idea that through repentance our sins will become as “white as snow” (Isaiah 1:18).

We will be observing Selichot this year with a study program on the subject of Jewish Ethical Wills at 7pm, followed by the service at 7:30 pm. The service will be from the Reform Movement’s Mishkan HaLev Prayerbook for Selichot which is available as a flipbook. Rabbi Mills will be sharing her screen with the flipbook but those who want practice using a flip book can find this prayerbook at https://www.ccarnet.org/publications/hhd-2021/#
