SELICHOT - "Groundhog Day" & Its Hidden Jewish Meaning

Selichot is a time of deep introspection; to look back on our past year and analyze our own behavior. Rabbi Siegel will get the discussion started this year with a screening of the movie, “Groundhog Day.” Following the Movie and Discussion, Cantor Lissek will lead us in a moving “Melodies of Selichot” service. We will also enjoy a delicious dessert reception. All are welcome!

אין כמו בבית - Ayn k’mo babayit – there’s no place like home.

The Hebrew word for home, bayit, transcends the brick and mortar structure, as it also describes a state of mind. Temple Israel is not only a gathering place, but it is a place to engage with Judaism and to transform your life through Torah, worship and acts of loving kindness.

Our egalitarian kehillah kedosha was founded in 1895 by visionaries and is continued today by visionary lay leaders, clergy, and professional staff who want to help you find a sacred and safe place to connect to each other and to Judaism. Won’t you join us on this journey? Temple Israel….our house, your home.
