September 19 @ 3:00 pm - 3:30 pm
We usually hold Tashlich — a New Year’s ritual where we symbolically “cast out” (that’s what the word Tashlich means) our sins by scattering bread crumbs on the water — at the covered bridge in Abington Park.
But space is a little tight on the bridge, and Temple Hesed — like many synagogues across the country — will be doing Tashlich as our only in-person event this High Holy Day season, and we will thus need to stay at least 6 feet apart. So instead, for this year only, we will meet at Lake Scranton, near the Lake Scranton stop light, where you usually turn to go to temple.
Please bring your own breadcrumbs, as we won’t be sharing or passing them around this year. And feel free to bring your own shofar if you have one — it will also be the only chance to hear the shofar in person this year!
We will meet at 3 pm on Rosh Hashanah Day, September 19th. Everyone is welcome — no ticket required, but please make sure to wear your mask and practice social distancing. Tashlich is a brief ceremony and is appropriate for all ages. Rabbi Daniel will also try to livestream this on the Temple Hesed Facebook page. Parking at the lake is limited to Handicapped. Others may have to use the lot down Route 307
