We invite you to join us during the High Holidays for our 3rd annual Reverse Tashlich initiative. Jewish communities will reverse the process of Tashlich and remove human 'sins' from the water in waterfront clean ups around the world.
In 2020, we encourage everyone to participate. You can make a team with your family, your congregation, your school, or go out and reflect by yourself. Regardless of how you do it, we will all be together taking care of our blue planet. Reverse Tashlich takes place on September 13th, 2020.
Register below to be updated on event and educational information as the date draws closer.

On Rosh HaShanah, Jewish communities symbolically cleanse themselves by casting items into a body of water. This ancient Jewish ritual is used to atone for sins of the previous year. However, this is not the only time humans cast their “sins” into the sea. Every year, approximately six million tons of human made trash enter the water, posing health and safety hazards to the animals that call the sea their home. Marine debris is a blatant violation of the fundamental Jewish ethical principle Bal Tashchit.
