Join Kehillah and Hillel at Stanford for Reverse Tashlich
What is Reverse Tashlich?
On Rosh HaShanah, Jews around the world participate in the ritual of Tashlich. We go to a body of water and symbolically cast off the sins of the past year by throwing bread crumbs into the water to start the New Year with purity of heart. 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 while disrespecting the water. Marine debris (or any pollution) is a violation of the fundamental Jewish ethical principle Bal Tashchit.
Hillel at Stanford and Kehillah are partnering up to clean up:
Where: Alviso Marine County Park (see flyer linked at the right)
When: Sunday, September 12
From: 11:30 AM – 2:30 PM
The event will be divided between the clean up efforts and reflection.
