Meals for Students
Sunday, September *24th, 10:00 AM (*Rescheduled to this date because of the rain)
For thousands of years, in a ritual called Tashlich, Jews around the world have symbolically cast their sins into a body of water on the holiday Rosh Hashanah. For 60 years humans have been throwing their sins, trash and debris into bodies of water as well. The Jewish community has shown we can cast sins in, now let’s take them out.
Join Repair the Sea | Tikkun HaYam, and Jewish communities around the world for a Reverse Tashlich.
A group will be leaving on foot from Hillel at 9:15 AM and meeting the rest of the community at Valentine St. & South 5th Ave at 10:00 AM.
If you plan on coming please fill out this form.
