Selihot with Guest Speaker Rabbi Mike Moskowitz
The Possibility of Change: Allyship as a Path to Teshuvah with Rabbi Mike Moskowitz
Join us as we prepare for this season of reflection and return with an evening of transformative learning, ritual, and prayer. Following arvit and havdalah, we will learn with Rabbi Mike Moskowitz, Scholar-in-Residence for Trans and Queer Jewish Studies at Congregation Beit Simchat Torah. Together, we will explore allyship as a path to teshuvah and its role in restorative religion and justice. This learning will be followed by Selihot services at 10:30PM, ushering in the themes and sounds of the Yamim Nora’im.
