Saturday, September 9

7:15 p.m. Dessert Reception • Simcha Center 8 p.m. A Contemplative & Inspiring Selichot Service • Stiffman Sanctuary 9:30 p.m. Conclude in Silence

As we prepare for the High Holidays, openings to holiness can feel elusive, but with moving words, stirring melodies, and prayers of inspiration, we each can find entrances to holiness. Join special musical guest Dan Nichols and the Shaare Emeth Clergy for this stirring and meaningful service. This service will premiere several pieces by Dan Nichols commissioned by Cantor Warner in memory of his parents. The service ends in quiet candlelight.
