This event has been rescheduled from September 10. 

As the High Holy Days draw near, many of us are thinking about how we can treat others with more compassion in the coming year. In recent years, many Jewish communities have extended this idea to also showing our planet more kindness and care. On Rosh Hashanah, during Tashlich, Jews throw bread in the water to symbolically cleanse themselves of their sins. The Reverse Tashlich project calls on Jewish communities to rethink this idea, removing our human “sins” from the water instead of throwing them in.

With that goal in mind, we invite you to join us in a special effort on October 1, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m., to clean up trash and debris from a location to be determined, and to practice tikkun hayam – repair of the sea and other bodies of water. (This event has been rescheduled from September 10.)

Please come out  to help restore one of our beautiful local waterways and enjoy some outdoor time with your fellow congregants! We will be joining Jews around the world in the Reverse Tashlich Project. This family-friendly event is a great way to connect with our Jewish values and for kids to see they can make a difference.

We hope to see you on October 1! Please contact Dave Cohen of the Green Team at to let him know you’re coming.
