Tashlich, Klezmer, and a Picnic
What to bring
• Picnic food and supplies for you and your family!
• Something to sit on – blankets, chairs, etc. (There are only 3 picnic tables at this site)
Please wear a mask unless you are eating.
Join your friends and make new ones at Chochmat’s Tashlich and Community Picnic. Tashlich is a purification ritual during which we symbolically cast away bad habits, places where we’ve missed the mark, into the water so that we do not carry them into the new year. (We’ll provide pebbles to throw in the water!) This process of letting go creates the space for us to become our most-inspired selves. Jhos and Julie will lead us in this powerful ritual.
This year, we invite our community to enjoy each other’s company, picnicking, singing, dancing, and of course, schmoozing.
Saul Goodman’s Klezmer Band performs music for weddings, bar and bat mitzvah parties, and all manner of concerts and celebrations around the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. Their sound draws from our modern cosmopolitan surroundings while being firmly rooted in traditional Jewish folk music tracing centuries back from Eastern Europe.
