Tashlich

Tashlich (TAHSH-leekh) is a popular custom during Rosh Hashanah. Created more than six hundred years ago, it is the act of going to a place with natural flowing water, such as a creek or river, on the afternoon of the first day of Rosh Hashanah to symbolically cast off our sins by tossing bread crumbs into the water.

Tashlich is a wonderful way to teach our children about t’shuvah (repentance) and forgiveness, but is most definitely appropriate for people of all ages!

Please B.Y.O.B. (bring your own bread) and join with other Hakafa families for a short and enjoyable service, lasting no more than fifteen minutes on Monday, September 30 at 3:15 p.m. (following the Rosh Hashanah Family Service).

We will meet at the boat launch of the Skokie Lagoons on Tower Road (south side of the street) in Winnetka, just east of the Edens Expressway. This location is completely accessible.

In case of rain, we will do Tashlich immediately following Second Day Rosh Hashanah Services.
