We will have a special Tashlich on Rosh Hashanah 1st Day (September 16).
Tashlich of Temporal Sand Art
Tashlich traditionally involves the casting of bread or stones into a natural body of water in a participatory, communal ceremony. Through this act, each participant distances herself or himself from past sins and harmful patterns, for the sake of a fresh start to the new year. This year for Tashlich at Beit Tikvah, we will create a temporal group art piece using natural sand and stones. The activity will encourage personal reflection, self love and renewal. No artistic skill or experience is required.
COVID Safety: We are fortunate to have a large, airy sanctuary space for our services. Masks are optional. We strongly encourage all attendees to be fully vaccinated for your own safety and that of the larger community. There will be a section reserved in the sanctuary for those who wish to remain masked and socially distanced. Please send in your reservation forms early to guarantee your seat.

There is still time to make your reservation. Please send us your High Holy Day forms (via email or regular mail) as early as possible.
We look forward to seeing you this High Holy Day season!
