Selichot – Movie, Desserts and Service

Selichot Concert & Service

Songs of Love and Longing with The Kosher Hams: An evening of music and laughter with Joan Wolf, Leah Chiaverini, Karen Levy, and Rabbi Sunny Schnitzer

The Selichot theme of longing for deep connection runs through not only the High Holy Days but through popular music as well. “Ta Sh’ma” (as the rabbis of the Talmud say)—“come and listen,” to music that will make you laugh and cry as we explore the affairs of the heart as preparation for the High Holy Days season.
A few of your favorite BJC musicians have put together an evening’s entertainment that is sure to please. The concert will be followed by a fancy dessert reception and a Selichot service that ends just after midnight. The final hour of the Shabbat before Rosh HaShannah was deemed by our rabbis to be a time of special power with special prayers and songs.
Avoid the Labor Day traffic. Come party with us! FREE—Reservations Preferred
