September 21 at 9:00 p.m. Followed by S’lichot Services.
S’lichot, the late Saturday night service, which falls right before Rosh HaShanah focuses our attention on the meaning of the occasion, “forgiveness” and further prepares us for the High Holy Days. At this year’s S’lichot observance at Beth Emet we will reflect on the themes of forgiveness and teshuvah (repentance) through the animated artwork of Hanan Harchol. In his short, animated series, Jewish Food For Thought, Harchol addresses psychological, sociological, and ethical themes that feature Harchol and often his parents as protagonists.
Hanan Harchol is a New York-based artist, filmmaker, animator, and classical guitarist. Harchol was born in Kibbutz Kinneret, Israel, and moved to the US at the age of two. In addition to his artwork, Harchol is a professional classical guitarist, who has broadcast solo recitals on WQXR, New York, and has recorded eleven best-selling CDs.
