Selichot  (“Forgiveness”)

Theater Experience and Service to Continue the Process of Preparing Our Souls
for the Yamim Nora’im/Days of Awe

"O my God" with Theater Ariel
What would happen if God walked into a
therapist’s office, to work on some problems in
just an hour?

And what would happen if that therapist already
had a turbulent relationship with God, filled with
skepticism, anger and fear?

To find out, come see this dark comedy by the late Israeli playwright Anat Gov.
The play will serve as a great jumping-off point for self-reflection and discussion as we head
toward Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

Program and discussion followed by a brief Selichot service.

Beth Israel will join via Zoom with other congregations from throughout Chester and Delaware Counties, including Congregation Beth Israel of Media, Congregation Beth El - Ner Tamid, Congregation Or Shalom, Temple Brith Achim, Congregation B'nai Jacob Phoenixville, Kesher Israel Congregation - West Chester, PA, Congregation Hesed Shel Emet, in this program organized and supported by the Kehillot of those counties, part of the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia.
