On Saturday, September 1st at 7:00 p.m., members of Reform Congregations in Cheshire, Hamden, Orange and Southbury will come together at Congregation Mishkan Israel in Hamden for the Annual Union Selichot Service for area Reform Congregations.
Selichot, an inspirational evening service held prior to Rosh Hashanah, culminates the process of repentance and forgiveness. The annual service is a once-a-year opportunity to be together as part of a bigger Jewish community and family. Rabbis, Cantors, Choirs, and soloists from participating congregations will lead the prayers, songs and study of psalms.
The community is invited. Congregation Mishkan Israel is located at 785 Ridge Road in Hamden. We are the 14th oldest congregation in the United States, and the oldest continuously operating one in New England. For more information, call the synagogue office at (203) 288-3877 or visit www.cmihamden.org.
