Slichot: Strategies for Confronting Judgment (September 9): Lesson 1
Shalom, Thank you for registering for this class. I look forward to seeing you online. In this shiur we will be taking a good look at the structure and content of the Selichot service, in order to achieve a better understanding of its role in our prayers during this time of year. I have posted here a few sources, which you can look over if you have the opportunity before we meet.If you want to try to read the gemara, the section we will be discussing goes from line 9 to line 18. May you be inscribed and sealed for a good year, of good health and happiness, material well-being, and spiritual growth. Yitzhak Zuriel
