On September 12th, we invite you to join Jewish Federation in elevating the annual Tashlich experience with an additional “Reverse Tashlich” beach cleanup.
We will meet at 1:00PM to hear the blast of the shofar followed by a beach cleanup on Huntington Avenue Beach in Margate.
This exciting program will be happening on the same day that Jewish Federations across America will be joining together to clean the earth!
“It is customary on Rosh HaShanah to go to a body of water and
symbolically cleanse ourselves by casting our sins into the water. In 2016 Scubi Jew® (the college division of Tikkun HaYam) at Eckerd College devised the idea of “Reverse Tashlich” and removed human”sins” from the water during a cleanup of the waterfront on campus. Two years later, Synagogues and Hillels in Tampa, St. Petersburg, DeLand, Miami, and Washington DC participated in first annual Reverse Tashlich.” (to read more, click here: https://docs.wixstatic.com/…/9c7801…)
Now, we are excited to be bringing the new Jewish practice to our community by the sea.
This year, we invite you to join us in beginning a brand new community practice of removing the “sins” of others from our beautiful Margate beach and doing a mitzvah (Hebrew for a good deed/commandment) for our local community and for our environment.
This event is free to attend and open to ALL community members – including all ages and religions.
We will provide trash bags for our volunteers.
