Remember Loved Ones with a Plaque in the JCCH Sanctuary

SEPTEMBER

Bonfire! S’mores! Friends! Music!

Saturday, September 1, 8:00 PM at the JCCH

Sounds like a block party? Actually, it is our annual communal Selichot service reimagined. Rooted in ancient ritual, Selichot combines the joy of community, the sweetness of a New Year, and the chance to consider the ways we will make ourselves and our communities better in 5779.

This will be an engaging and meaningful evening for congregants of all ages. Come and enjoy the strains of well-known High Holy Day melodies, the glow of a fire, Havdallah…it’s the perfect way to kick off the High Holy Day season. Once again, we will join with Congregation Emanu-El of Westcheser, Community Synagogue of Rye, and KTI for this special evening.
