Tashlich 
A tradition dating back to at least the 15th century and observed on the first day of Rosh Hashanah, Tashlich means “casting off” in Hebrew. Participants symbolically cast off their sins of the previous year into a body of flowing water, which carries them away. In this way, participants hope to start the new year with a clean slate.

This year, Tashlich will be Monday, September 26th, at 5 pm in Baker Park at the corner of Bentz St. and Carroll Parkway.

Yizkor
Yizkor will be recited on Yom Kippur morning and on Shemini Atzeret.  It is traditional on Yom Kippur to make a donation in memory of loved ones. 

In addition to donations to the congregation, many people have chosen to donate by adding the name of a loved one to our BOOK OF REMEMBRANCE.  The booklet is used on Yom Kippur and at Yizkor services throughout the year, and copies will be available to those who have donated to it.  

2nd Day Rosh Hashanah Lunch and Break-the-Fast
The congregation will host a luncheon following morning services on the 2nd day of Rosh Hashanah, Tuesday, September 27th.  Our thanks to David and Gayle Bromberg for their generous sponsorship of this event!  

Also, following the the Neilah service at the conclusion of Yom Kippur on Wednesday, October 5th, join us for our Tailgate Break-The Fast in the Beth Sholom parking lot.  Bring your own favorite foods.
