Saturday 21 September
It is traditional to begin the High Holy Days by coming together on a Saturday evening for Selichot, the first opportunity to hear and recite our poems of pardon. We will start the evening with Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman’s Casablanca. To get us into the spirit of forgiveness of this season, we ask what will it take for Rick to forgive Ilsa?
After light refreshments, we will transition into our choral service with our Rabbis, Ann Sadan and the EHRS Choir beginning at 23:00. Feel welcome to come at any stage of the evening.
Film and discussion 20:15-22:30, followed by tea 22:30-23:00 Selichot Service 23:00-00:10
Visiting the graves in Elul
Sunday 22 September
There is a tradition to visit the graves of loved ones in the period before the High Holy Days. This can be done privately at any convenient time. EHRS is also arranging short collective Memorial Services in the Prayer Halls at Cheshunt, Edgwarebury Lane and Southgate cemeteries, following which people can visit the graves of family and friends to say a prayer & Kaddish.
The services will take place on Sunday 22 September as follows:
Southgate at 10:45 with Rabbi Steven Katz
Cheshunt at 11:00 with Rabbi Neil Kraft
Edgwarebury Lane at 12:00 with Rabbi Mark Goldsmith
