Join us in the custom of visiting a flowing body of water as we throw our sins (*represented by bread crumbs) into the water. Held at the edge of Lake Murray, Tashlich, Hebrew for “casting off”, is beautiful and meaningful for all ages. This is a wonderful opportunity for children to directly engage with the values of the holiday through a physical activity. Tashlich is certain to become a family memory and tradition.
Be sure to dress comfortably and casually. If you wish, bring a dairy or pareve picnic to enjoy.
Bring the Children Early, 4:15 p.m.
Join us a bit earlier for some music, singing, and storytelling with Rabbi Josh and Cantor Hanan. More details are here.
Besides the fun, parking will be easier!
From Lake Murray Boulevard turn north on Kiowa Drive and continue to the gate. Follow the road around to the parking lot and look for us on the lawn next to the water.
*Recognizing the potential environmental impact of a traditional Tashlich, those who wish are encouraged to use bird seed, or anything on the list below, to symbolically represent their transgressions, as opposed to bread, during our congregational Taschlich at Lake Murray.
- Corn (canned, frozen or fresh)
- Duck pellets (sold online and at pet stores)
- Lettuce or other greens (torn into small pieces)
- Frozen peas (defrosted)
- Oats (rolled or instant)
- Seeds (including birdseed or other varieties)
