Adath Jeshurun Selichot Program
September 17 @ 8:20 pm - 11:30 pm
Join us for our in-person Selichot service, program & dessert reception. Selichot prepares us for the High Holy Days. This is a time for serious introspection, and a time to consider our sins of the previous year. At the service, we recite prayers seeking forgiveness from God, and promise to improve our behavior in the New Year.
AJ will be spotlighting Roots 101, an award-winning non-profit museum committed to helping patrons understand the African-American experience from slavery to freedom. The museum helps curate a greater understanding of the achievements, cultural contributions, and the experiences of African-American citizens. Learn more about the museum at www.roots-101.org/.
What will I see at the program? “The Lost Supper” by Cantor Steven Stoehr, is a film exploring an imagined Passover Seder hosted by Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel and attended by Martin Luther King, Jr. AJ’s own Yehudah Husband starred in the initial production, and will be a panelist in a post-film discussion. Special guest, Lamont Collins, founder of Louisville’s Roots 101 African American Museum will also participate in the discussion.
