About Tashlich

Tashlich is a fun, uplifting ceremony where we symbolically "cast away" our sins and sadness from the past year. BYO shofar this year if you want to practice, as we can't share in a COVID environment. Masks and social distancing encouraged.

 
We may not be allowed to feed the fowl this year, but if you want to come prepared, bear in mind that bread of any kind is harmful to water birds! Alternatives: corn (canned, frozen and defrosted, or fresh), peas (frozen and defrosted), oats (rolled or instant), seeds (including birdseed), grapes (cut in half to prevent choking), duck pellets (sold online and at pet stores).
