Selichot Study on Jewish Ethical Wills: 7:00 pm
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. 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.
Ethical wills, also called spiritual or legacy letters are resources Jews have used for centuries to articulate and pass on deeply held values and beliefs. Historically, they were letters written by parents to children. They contain an individual’s moral legacy and may include stories, life lessons, and blessings for the future.
