Inspire Purpose – Tashlich at the Beach

Next week, all upper school students will be traveling in their Judaic Studies classes to Torrey Pines State Beach to participate in a special program called Tashlich at the Beach.  Tashlich is a unique Jewish ritual, traditionally performed on Rosh Hashanah or shortly thereafter, in which participants symbolically “cast away” their sins by tossing crumbs of bread into a body of water (the Hebrew word tashlich means “cast”). In addition to the ceremony itself, students will engage in a series of short activities designed to help them reflect on the past year and look ahead to the coming year.  The High Holidays are a perfect time in the Jewish calendar for introspection, and our goal is for students to practice self-improvement as the calendar turns to the year 5778.  Wishing all of our SDJA families a Shanah Tovah Umetukah!  -Jeremy Toren
