Sat, Sept 21, 7 pm, Selichot Program at Broadway UMC

Selichot is a night of soul-searching and reflection in preparation for the High Holy Days. We will screen and discuss “A Serious Man", a 2009 Academy Award nominee for best picture. It’s a darkly comedic Coen Brothers’ film, often described as a Jewish Midwest-suburban version of the Book of Job. It asks a lot of questions about ethics, morality, the nature of evil, the relevance of Judaism…and leaves the answers up to us.

This program is made possible through a generous grant from Aleph Alliance for Jewish Renewal with support from the National Center to Encourage Judaism.
