Tashlikh is a very old practice occurring between Rosh Hashannah and Yom Kippur, in which we may transfer our “sins” to bread crumbs and throw them into a running stream where they’ll be washed away- making us ready for the “Day of Atonement.” Of course we, as Humanists, have a slightly different way. Not being miserable sinners, we transfer our less admirable behaviors and attitudes to pebbles, which are more eco-friendly than bread.
Again this year, we’ll meet at noon at a picnic table near the river beach at George Rogers Park,, and then go to the beach where Alan Israel will lead us in a short Tashlikh observance. We’ll enjoy the sun, the water, the park, and the comradeship as we connection our roots with this old custom. Bring a picnic lunch or knosh to have after the ceremony. This is also a great way to meet people and catch up on summer activities. Our Sunday School children will join us!
