The evening will feature a viewing of Encounter Point, a powerful film about the Bereaved Parents Circle, an organization of Israelis and Palestinians who have lost loved ones in the conflict and are committed to dialogue and reconciliation in the wake of their loss.  Through their example, we will explore possibilities for compassion and forgiveness in our own lives.  The program is for adults and teens, beginning with havdallah, dessert & schmoozing at 8:00pm,  and the Selichot program at 8:30pm.
