Tashlich: Family Experience and Traditional – 9/7

Tuesday, September 7th

Family Rosh Hashana Experience, 4:00 p.m.

Traditional Tashlich, 5:00 p.m.

Join us at the edge of Lake Murray for a fun and interactive experience as we symbolically “cast our sins” into the water.

What is Tashlich?

On the first day of Rosh Hashana, Jews traditionally proceed to a body of running water, preferably one containing fish, and symbolically cast off their sins. Tashlich is a wonderful opportunity for children to directly engage with the values of the holiday.

Amidah Aerobics: A Family Experience beginning at 4:00 p.m.

Join us for this collaborative and physically distanced Tashlich Family event co-hosted with Temple Emanu-El!

This progressive event will provide an opportunity for families to explore the sovereignty, remembrance, and shofar verses of the Rosh Hashana service. This will be great for the whole family, from babies to bubbies, and is sure to enhance the holiday experience.

Bring your TIS picnic blanket or lawn chairs and pack a snack or even a picnic (dairy or pareve) to enjoy. This is going to be a fun and interactive experience.

Traditional Tashlich beginning at 5:00 p.m.

For those joining us for Tashlich, don’t forget your duck pellets (provided in your High Holy Day kit), bread, or other more environmentally friendly items such as bird seed. As is our tradition, we will join with Temple Emanu-El to mark this moment.

If you would like, pack a picnic (dairy or pareve) and bring your TIS picnic blanket or lawn chairs.
