Selichot Service & Film: The Other Son

A service for forgiveness

Join us for our non-traditional Selichot program, in which we'll recite the ancient prayers of forgiveness as a community. Click here to learn more about Selichot, which many people find to be a moving and powerful way to prepare for the High Holidays.

This year, our Selichot film Selection is The Other Son
As he prepares to join the Israeli army for his national service, Joseph discovers he is not his parents’ biological son, but that he was inadvertently switched at birth with Yassin, the son of a Palestinian family from the West Bank. This revelation turns the lives of these two families upside-down, forcing them to reassess their respective identities, their values and their beliefs.

Date and Time: 
Saturday, August 31, 2013 - 7:00pm to 10:30pm
