& SELIHOT PRAYERS
Selihot are pre-New Year's prayers of forgiveness recited during the month before the New Year - with intensified depth beginning late at night on the Saturday before Rosh Hashanah.
By tradition, Selihot are not recited on the Sabbath as their penitential nature might conflict with the joy of Shabbat. At TUJ, however, we are comfortable with this liturgical flexibility knowing that on Friday evening most are present.
A festive, pre-New Year Oneg Shabbat of light food and sweets will follow the Service.
