  • Where will you Tashlich?

    September 24, 2014 | 12:14 pm

    I love the annual ritual of tashlich, the symbolic casting away of the soul’s sins. As it involves a body of water — oceans, rivers, ponds — I like to think of it as an excuse for a hike … and a spiritual adventure.  

    The custom of self-reflection, traditionally performed on the...

  • 4 Rosh Hashanah resolutions

    By Shmuel Rosner

    September 16, 2012 | 7:55 am

    1. No predictions.

    Back in 2007, I wrote a short post explaining why readers should never trust my predictions (if they ever did). The occasion was similar: Rosh Hashanah eve. And going back to my predictions from 12 months ago, I discovered that as predictions go, I got some...

  • Cast away!

    August 19, 2011 | 12:19 pm

    Recipe for forgiveness: One slice of bread, one body of water. Break bread into small pieces. Add bread to water and watch the year’s sins float away.

    Sure, that’s a huge oversimplification of the tashlich concept, but it does help explain why Jews all over the world throw...

  • The very best Tashlich custom is a toss-up

    By Rachel Heller

    September 25, 2008 | 2:43 am

    On paper, the Rosh Hashanah ritual of Tashlich is about doffing one's sins to start the new year with a clean slate. For Jason Mauro, 16, it's also about beach football.

    Every year since he was 8, Mauro and his friends at Temple Israel of Hollywood have marked the afternoon...

    Rosh Hashanah is upon us. We will use the shofar to blow us into the new year, we will dip apples in honey for a sweet year and our challah will be round just like the yearly cycle. Our new year will be celebrated this on Sept. 26, the 1st of Tishrei.
