Other High Holiday Celebrations

Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) Sunrise Walk and Breakfast
Saturday, September 19, 6:30AM

Come and experience the Jewish New Year beginnings on a short nature walk to Dogwood pasture. We will see the sunrise together, share some songs and poetry, participate in a short service, and eat apples and honey. Dress warmly and bring a poem or song or instrument if you like. Breakfast will then be served at the Eckstein’s house. (Leaving  plenty of time for those who want to attend synagogue services) MEET at the large rocks by the recycling shed next to Shafer B and the bike shop.

Tashlich Service (Jewish New Year tradition)
Sunday, September 20, 3PM

Sometimes between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, it is customary to throw bread crumbs into a body of water as a symbolic act of repentance. Family and friends gather together at the waterfront to "cast away" the sins of the past year and resolve to be a better person in the year to come. We will have Billy Jonas, a local musician, to accompany the ceremony. Bring bread if you can. MEET at the Garden Cabin and we will walk down to the river together
