Photographs from the Selichot service at Beit Emanuel on 10 September

Beit Emanuel participated this week in Blessings Around The World, an international Selichot service in which blessings were exchanged with other Progressive congregations around the world.  Here are some photographs from the service held in the Slome Auditorium on Thursday evening, 10th September 2015:
