Tashlich 5779

During the Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashanah) many Jews participate in a service/tradition called tashlich, which loosely translated from Hebrew means “casting off.” This is observance involves symbolically casting off the sins of the previous year by tossing pieces of bread into a body of flowing water. The service of tashlich is one of Margaret’s favorite of the year…no surprise since it takes place on the water.

To start the Jewish year 5779, we’re offering a community-led tashlich on Percy Priest Lake for the third year in a row. We have a limited number of kayaks and paddleboards available for those who want to get on the water, or you are welcome to bring your own. We also have some inflatable inner tubes and floats for those who prefer those. There is no charge to join us. We do ask that you register online so we know how many people to plan for.  Do this in advance online through this link or by calling us, as numbers are limited.

Tashlich will be observed: Tuesday, September 11, 2018 at 3 p.m. 

Hope to have you join us for this Nashville Paddle Company-style approach to a Rosh Hashanah tradition.
