Tashlich

Saturday, September 19, 2020 1 Tishrei 5781

3:00 PM - 3:30 PMTBD

After the conclusion of services on the First Day of Rosh Hashanah, our congregation participates in a ritual called Tashlich. Tashlich means “to cast or throw.” It is a tradition on Rosh Hashanah to go to a river or a stream to symbolically cast our sins into the water. The key passage in this ceremony, which sometimes involves throwing pocket lint or bread crumbs into the water, is from Micah 7:19: “God will have compassion upon us: God will subdue our iniquities and you will cast (tashlich) all their sins into the depths of the sea.” Metaphorically, as the eyes of fish never close, so God always watches for our sins to be cast away. The service and songs are appropriate for members of all ages.

We are so grateful that we can have this in-person outside gathering. Please do not attend if you are feeling sick, have a fever, cough or stomach issues. We remind everyone who plans to attend to follow these guidelines to keep themselves and others safe:

Wear your mask at all times-and your mask should cover your nose, mouth and chin. Please do not wear a mask with a vent as such masks are not effective in protecting others.

Keep a distance of at least six feet from others who are not in your household.

Thanks for being part of our community.
