Our Singers are Back for Selichot –
This years’ Selichot service will be held at Beth Abraham, and unfortunately it will not be community-wide as we navigate out of the pandemic. However, we are happy to announce that it will feature some of Beth Abraham’s singers from the Dayton Jewish Chorale led by Dr. Sam Dorf and accompanied by pianist, Lily Rose.
The Selichot service, which contains a series of prayers asking for God’s forgiveness, signals that the High Holy Days are near. The service is usually held late on the Saturday night preceding Rosh Hashanah, except in the case when there are fewer than four days in between. This is the situation this year, as Rosh Hashanah begins on a Monday evening. Therefore our service will take place on Saturday, August 28, beginning at 9:00pm with Havdalah and refreshments.
We hope that you will join us to mark the start of the holiday season.
