September 23 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Tashlikh is most commonly done on the first day of Rosh Hashanah (or the second day if the first day is Shabbat in Ashkenazi tradition). However it can be done anytime during the High Holiday season through Hoshanah Rabbah. The ceremony is traditionally done at a body of water (ideally one with fish) and is a brief ritual where we symbolically place our sins onto bread which we throw into the water, symbolically casting off our sins. It is supposed to motivate and accompany repentance work where we ask people directly for their forgiveness for hurting them.
This year we will be doing Tashlikh at Magnuson Park – contact the office for details. Rather than all gathering at once and having crowds, we will be doing a Tashlikh “open house” where you are welcome to drop by and join our rabbis and shinshiniot anytime between 4:30 -6:30 pm on Wednesday, September 23rd. We will have information on the ceremony and encourage you to bring your own bread.
