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 Sept. 18, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m., to clean up trash and debris from an area of the Griggstown Causeway, and to practice tikkun hayam – repair of the sea and other bodies of water.
Please come out for a few hours 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 prepare for the High Holy Days, and for kids to see they can make a difference.
We hope to see you on September 18! See the signup below for more details, and contact the Green Team at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
