Details of Tashlich ceremony: background and logistics
The Tashlich ceremony will take place immediately following the service at the Lions Bridge (Mariner Museum). Tashlich’ means ‘you shall cast’. The term comes from Micah 7:19: “You shall cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.” The Tashlich ceremony traditionally takes place near a source of water, such as the sea, a stream or a lake, on Rosh HaShanah afternoon. The rituals of Tashlich are very meaningful. We cast our transgressions away into the waters and pledge not to commit them again in the future. As part of our service, we will feed the fish and the ducks some corn kernels, symbolizing the casting away of our sins and celebrating God’s Creation. Please join us for this very special and important ceremony as we begin our journey to Teshuvah, repentance, together.
We will go to the Lions bridge for Tashlich, as we did last year. Unfortunately the Mariners Museum is unable to provide transportation this year. Rabbi Sokol would like folks who plan to go to the lake to let her know at firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, August 29th . Attached is a map with directions from the Temple to the Lions Bridge: directions to Lions Bridge The security department of the museum will direct traffic and keep parking spaces available for our congregation. Space is limited to 5 or 6 spots on the one side of the bridge. There should be additional parking spots on the median.
