Tashlich: A Joyful Beginning to the New Year

Tuesday, September 27 at 5:00pm
(Rosh Hashanah Day 2)

We cast away our sins (ok, old crumbs!) and begin the year with song and celebration.

All are welcome; registration is not required.

Led by Rabbi Ed Feinstein and Cantor Phil Baron. Bring Your Dogs for "Tash-leash" – All dogs will receive a special blessing as we celebrate a communal “Bark Mitzvah.” 

Instead of bread crumbs, we ask you to please bring birdseed, oats,corn, peas, chopped lettuce or seedless grapes cut in half to protect the wildlife from illness and the water from disease.

Tashlich at the Beach

Beach & Blessings Family Service and Tashlich

Tuesday, September 27 at 10:00am (Rosh Hashanah Day 2)

10:00am at 415 Pacific Coast Highway, Santa Monica (adjacent to Annenberg Community Beach House) between lifeguard towers 2 and 4

Join Rabbi Scott Westle, Rabbi Noam Raucher and sing with our VBS Family Musicians for a casual and meaningful outdoor Rosh Hashanah experience. We will come together for a brief service, shofar blowing and Tashlich. As Jews, our actions speak louder than our words and intentions. Traditionally, we would cast away ("Tashlich") symbolic representations of areas we wish to improve within ourselves. This year, we will turn intention into holy deed, not by casting, but by cleaning our beaches.

Bring your own crumbs, shofars and picnic lunch. All are welcome; registration is not required.
