On Saturday, September 16, please join us at Washington Hebrew Congregation so we can begin the spiritual odyssey of the High Holy Days as a community.

*A Congregational Dinner at 5:00 pm*
Reconnect with friends and make new acquaintances at a delicious dinner hosted by the EmptyNesters auxiliary. The cost is $32 per person, and payment is required in advance. You can pay online or send a check to Beth Donaldson at Temple, attention Selichot Dinner. Please include your name, phone number, and number of guests.

*A Time for Reflection at 6:30 pm*
As Elul – the traditional month of soul-searching before the High Holy Days – draws to a close, we invite you to experience a half-hour of soulful reflection with Cantor Susan Bortnick and Director of Religious Education Stephanie Tankel. The session will include guided meditation, song, and gentle movement. It will be accessible to all and a lovely way to embark on this New Year.

*Selichot Service at 7:00 pm*
Our beautiful, musical candlelit service, led by our rabbis and cantors, has a meaningful and compelling liturgy with poetry and musical prayers to inspire you to reflect on the past year.

*Dessert Reception*
Following the service, we will conclude the evening with a festive dessert reception.
