6:00 p.m. Selichot Affinity Dinner –

In Hebrew, s’lichot translates to “forgiveness,” God’s ability to forgive “transgression, iniquity, and sin.”

Jews begin and end the season of repentance calling out to the compassionate God, as we are again encouraged to reflect on the past year and the changes we wish to make in the upcoming one.

This year, please join us for one of our affinity dinners, a chance for us to gather with our fellow congregants and discuss meaningful issues that can serve as springboards into the prayerful days to follow.

This year’s dinners and themes are as follows (please note: each attendee pays for his/her own dinner):

Noble Crust in Carrollwood: Phil and Deborah Bowen. “Often in times of deepest despair or devastation, redemption seems like a cruel illusion. How can – or have – experienced teshuvah?’

Sweet Tomatoes in Carrollwood: Patrick and Liz Carroll. This family-friendly option will explore topics of interest to attendees on the younger side.

Sacred Pepper in Northdale: Jim and Sue Ellen Corning. “If you could return to a place or time, where would it be and what are some characteristics that make that place or time special?”

Petra in Temple Terrace: Allan Feldman and Sarina Ergas. “The Binding of Isaac: Did Abraham pass G-d’s test?”

Times and details are found at the link below. Please sign up to reserve your spot.


Following dinner, we’ll meet at CBAfor a s’lichot service, dessert potluck, and more conversation. All are welcome to attend services and dessert, whether or not you attended a dinner.

8:00 p.m. Selichot Service
