Friday, September 22, 2023 7 Tishrei 5784

5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Friday, September 22 5 p.m. | Bring Your Own Picnic at the Gene Leahy Mall (IP) 6 p.m. | Service & Tashlich Ceremony at the Gene Leahy Mall (IP) Shabbat Shuvah is a service of returning that takes place between Rosh Hashanah & Yom Kippur. As part of that process, we ask ourselves and everyone in attendance to think about how we might have missed the mark. Tashlich is a ceremony with a physical reminder to cast away your sins, representing our hope that we can "cast off" our misdeeds. In ancient tradition, those participating in Tashlich would turn out their pockets into bodies of water to empty out and let go of their sins. Grab your family, friends, and neighbors to join us. We encourage community and conversation from 5-6 p.m. with a "Bring Your Own" Picnic, with a Shabbat Service to follow. Following service, we will offer an environmentally friendly version of Tashlich as well (Think of it as a second-chance at those New Year's resolutions)! We will have a food truck on-site following Services for a special, complimentary dessert. To enjoy the downtown scenery during this event: Please bring your own blankets and chairs, as provided seating will be limited. There’s an amazing playground nearby! Feel free to bring your own picnic dinner. Coolers are allowed Glass and Grills are NOT allowed. Please feel free to bring your children and your pets. For our regular Temple Israel congregants, please note that there will be NO SERVICES at Temple Israel on September 22. We are also unable to offer an online option at this time, so please join us downtown! Mourner's Kaddish will be added to Torah Study on September 23 for anyone who missed it on Friday evening!
