Family Tashlich

Rebecca Schoffer and Rabbi Samantha Frank

Join Rebecca Schoffer and Rabbi Samantha Frank for a socially distanced celebration!

Together we will greet the new year with song, reflection, and the ritual of Tashlich (letting go of the year that’s passed by tossing bread into the East River.)

*All attendees, including children over the age of two, must wear face masks in order to participate.

*In the event that an outdoor gathering is no longer advisable, we will hold this event virtually. Please check back closer to program date and register here to be notified of any changes or updates.

*Due to New York State guidelines, this outdoor gathering will be limited, so pre-registration is required. Location will be shared upon registration.

BYOB (Bring your own bread!) and let’s gather in hope and prayer for a sweet new year!
