This powerful and fear inspiring prayer is one of the bedrock prayers of the High Holy Day liturgy and we know it's words by rote: "Who shall live and who shall die? Who will see ripe old age and who shall not?" But after two years of a pandemic, and as we are now talking more regularly about Monkey Pox and Polio, do we really still believe the theology behind it? Join with our clergy as we seek to reinterpret this prayer for a new generation. After the discussion, we will move to the sanctuary for our very special Selichot Service, where we will change our Torah covers to white in preparation for the High Holy Days.
