Selichot: Entering the High Holy Days with Curiosity and Compassion with Rabbi Nancy Kasten

Sat. August 28, 2021 – 7:30pm

Stern Chapel and Online


As we emerge from the pandemic, we may approach the High Holy Days with excitement because we expect that we will be able to come back to a place that we recognize, with prayers and music and people we know. And at the same time the promise of the High Holy Days lies in our capacity to see things anew. The process of atonement takes courage, but it is easier if we can substitute curiosity and compassion for judgment. During our Selichot study we will pave the way for our atonement and acts of forgiveness to be authentic and transformative.
