Selichot and “Moving into Rosh Hashanah”
Co-sponsored by Sukkat Shalom (PJS) and Paideia Folkhögskolan
What is Selichot?
Related to the Hebrew word selicha, forgiveness, selichot is a collection of prayers, poems, songs, and discussion on teshuva (returning to our best selves), traditionally held late on the Saturday night prior to Rosh Hashanah.
How will we do Selichot?
Led by Sukkat Shalom's new rabbi, Rebecca Lillian, we will begin with a brief text-study and discussion on the above themes, followed by Havdalah (ceremony marking the end of shabbat). Our selcihot experience will continue with movement meditation to embody the passage from the old year into the new one, led by 5Rhythms® teacher Adam Eisen. Using our bodies and movement to connect more deeply with how the past year lives within us and how we set our intentions for the year to come, we’ll move together into Rosh Hashanah with body, heart, mind and soul.
You are welcome to come for all or part of the evening.
