Birmingham’s Temple Emanu-El will finish celebrating the centennial of its historic domed sanctuary with Selichot services on Aug. 24 at 7:30 p.m.
Over the last century, several churches have been housed in the sanctuary for a variety of reasons — fires, renovations or new congregations that did not have their own buildings yet.
Representatives from Southside Baptist Church, South Highland Presbyterian Church, Independent Presbyterian Church, Baptist Church of the Covenant and Living Stones Temple will participate in the service.
Hebrew Union Congregation in Greenville is also doing a different schedule for Selichot, having it after the Aug. 23 Shabbat service.
