Time for a Change? Observe Tashlich Humanistically!

Saturday, September 11 · 11:00 AM MDT

Tashlich is a time and place for self-reflection.  In traditional Judaism, people gather at a body of water to cast off those habits that they consider to be “sinful”. By contrast, Humanistic Jews gather together in order to identify and welcome the positive changes that we wish to make.

Beth Ami – Colorado Congregation for Humanistic Judaism will be celebrating Tashlich on Saturday, September 11, at 11:00 AM.  Our madrikha (leader), Sheila Malcolm, will lead us in a Humanistic Tashlich service at Viele Lake and the Harlow Platts Picnic Shelter in South Boulder (1360 Gillaspie Dr, Boulder 80305).  This will be followed by an optional BYO lunch. Please park in the lot that adjoins the shelter for this free event. Bring water, lunch if desired, and a blanket/chair for comfy distancing.

We will provide apples and honey, traditional symbols of the new year. Some of us will opt to take a meditative stroll around the lake.

Beginning with the New Year 5782, Beth Ami joins other Boulder County Jewish congregations to collect packaged foods for our local Community Food Share. Kindly bring unexpired cans and boxes to our LIVE events.

Let us know that you plan to attend by clicking the “Attend” button on our Meetup page.

Beth Ami is a welcoming community where we connect to the Jewish past, celebrate the Jewish present, and link to the Jewish future through a humanistic philosophy. Let’s do Jewish together – Humanistically!

How do I know Judaism is still alive and well? More people go to synagogue for Kol NIdrei than any other time of the year- and there’s no food served for at least twenty four hours!
