Selihot, Saturday, September 17, 9:00 p.m.

Rosh Hashanah is all about the decisions we make, the decisions we don’t make, and the decisions we regret. Join us for a movie that explores alternative realities and how choosing to take a different path might impact us.

Everything, Everywhere, All at Once (2022)

With her laundromat teetering on the brink of failure and her marriage to wimpy husband Waymond on the rocks, overworked Evelyn Wang struggles to cope with everything, including a tattered relationship with her judgmental father Gong Gong and Joy, her daughter. And, as if facing a gloomy midlife crisis weren't enough, Evelyn must brace herself for an unpleasant meeting with an impersonal bureaucrat: Deirdre, the shabbily dressed IRS auditor. However, as the stern agent loses patience, an inexplicable multiverse rift becomes an eye-opening exploration of parallel realities. Will Evelyn jump down the rabbit hole? How many stars are there in the universe? Can weary Evelyn fathom the irrepressible force of possibilities, tap into newfound powers, and prevent an evil entity from destroying the thin, countless layers of the unseen world? —Nick Riganas

The movie will be followed by a Selihot service, beginning at approximately 11:30 p.m.

**Havdalah after Rosh Hashanah is the blessing over wine and havdalah alone (no spices or candle).


We are looking forward to welcoming Rabbi Shlomo Zacharow, who will be acting as the Cantor for the High Holidays. The majority of the liturgy will be chanted according to the traditional nusah and he has learned our melodies for certain key prayers so we we can sing along with him as we have sung for the last generation or two. He will introduce some new melodies, and has put together a “play list” of youtube videos of new melodies that he will be sprinkling into some of the services. We invite you to listen to them in advance to get to know the melodies so you will be able to sign along during the service:
