Tashlich @ the J
September 9-15 during JCC business hours, 6:30am-8pm
Tashlich, which literally translates to “casting off,” is a ceremony where Jews symbolically cast off the sins of the previous year by tossing pebbles into water. During this ritual, people call to mind things they’ve done wrong in the past year and then “throw them away,” promising for improvement in the coming year. Tashlich can be done any day during Rosh Hashanah until Yom Kippur.
This year, we will have a symbolic Tashlich set-up in the lobby. Write your wrongs to throw away on water soluble paper and cast them into the water to melt away. Stay tuned for times to meet your J-Family Ambassador at the table!
