Selichot

Saturday, September 9th • beginning at 8:30 pm
8:30 pm — Movie & Discussion with Rabbi Spector
10:45 pm — Selichot Service with the Kol Ami Choir

Join us at 8:30 pm as we watch Adam Sandler's new film, "You Are SO NOT Invited to my Bat Mitzvah," which explores drama and conflict between two best friends as they prepare for their bat mitzvah. While taking the antics commonly found Sandler's silly and wacky comedies, there are deep messages of how we overcome conflict and pain between us and those who we love the most. This PG-13 movie (a couple of crude and suggestive parts) has currently a rating of 94% on Rotten Tomatoes and will be both thoughtful and fun for those who are currently pre-teens or who once were. Following the film we will have a brief discussion on some of the themes of Teshuva that the movie raises and then having one of our briefest, most beautiful and meaningful services of the year, Selichot, where we change the covers of the Torah to white, signaling the imminent approach of the Days of Awe. Join us for what is sure to be a fun, comical, reflective and spiritual evening for all ages. Please RSVP below.

Then at 10:45 pm we'll move into the sanctuary for our Selichot service with the Kol Ami Choir.

The movie "You are so not invited to my Bat Mitzvah," follows Stacey Friedman as she prepares for her Bat Mitzvah. Stacy and Lydia are BFFs who've always dreamed about having epic bat mitzvahs. However, things start to go comically awry when a popular boy and middle school drama threatens their friendship and their rite of passage. See the trailer here.
