Jewish Community of Las Vegas invites you to participate in the ceremony of “Tashlich” or casting-off.
The time between Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashanah) which occurs this year on September 16, and the holy fast day known as The Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) 9 days later, is a time of personal reflection in the Jewish religion, where Jews consider how they can become better people in the upcoming year. In Taschlich, a Jewish ceremony that dates to the Middle Ages, participants think over their year and symbolically discard what is ready to be discarded: misdeeds, bad behaviors, grudges, and moments of unkindness, by throwing them into the river, using bread or leaves or small scraps of paper. With this action, we mentally dedicate ourselves to improvement in the upcoming year.
We welcome all to participate who wish to reflect on their year and set a goal of self-improvement for the next 12 months!
