Selichot 5777

Saturday night, September 16
8:45 pm – Film –  “After All You are Just a Guest”
Every Jewish New Year, ultra-orthodox Jews from Israel converge on Uman, a small Ukrainian village, to pay tribute to the gravesite of their spiritual leader, Rabbi Nachman of Breslav. Recently, many young Israelis have been drawn to an intense ultra-religious way of life. “After All you are Just a Guest” is about those who have chosen the path to, what they consider to be a deeper, more meaningful and more colorful way of life. Producer and Director Ron Ofer is perhaps the last of his friends who didn’t make this religious leap. Nonetheless, he accompanies his childhood friends on their pious journey from Jerusalem to Uman to visit the sacred grave. The film examines from within one of the most important phenomena of our times; the search for spirituality and one’s “roots”, while it questions what is “authentic” in a world where spirituality has become a commodity.


10:00 pm – Selichot Service

Enter into the spirit of the High Holidays with the moving Selichot service conducted in the still of the night by Yehudit Kanfer.

Tisha b’Av

We will join together with our friends from Temple Israel as we observe Tisha B’Av with an evening of sacred songs, poetry and the chanting of Eicha, the Book of Lamentations.

Where: Agudas Achim’s Irving & Frances Schottenstein Chapel

When:  Wednesday evening, July 31st at 8:30 pm

Tisha B’Av (the 9th of the Hebrew month of Av) is the commemoration of the destruction of the First and Second Temples and the city of Jerusalem many centuries ago. The passage of time has seen the addition of many other tragedies which have befallen the Jewish people tied to this mournful date.
