Tashlikh - George Rogers Park, Lake Oswego

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!
