This program will be part of the celebrations marking the start of Jewish High Holy Days held at Ohr Kadesh Temple in Chevy Chase. Every year on the Saturday night preceding Rosh Ha-Shanah, they have a late-night service called “Selichot” and this year we are having an interfaith panel as part of that service to include speakers from each of the Abrahamic faiths who will be discussing God's compassion and forgiveness from each of their faith's viewpoints. There will be a break for refreshments after the event's conclusion before the service at 11pm. Anyone attending the event is more then welcome to stay for the service.Find out more »
