Reset your system with our
modern spin on a 600-year-old Rosh Hashanah
ritual called tashlich. This custom of ridding ourselves of all our bad
vuggum (karma) from the previous year and getting a fresh start for the
new one is traditionally enacted by tossing bread into the ocean. Join
us by the shore at Ocean Beach for a brief, engaging ritual and joyful
noise accompaniment from shofar blowers, bag pipers, members of the
Jazz Mafia and the Ministers of Sound of the Saint John Will-I-Am
Coltrane African Orthodox Church. Bring stale bread to share and a
shofar, if you have one, to blow along with some of San Francisco's
finest players. Enjoy our twist on the traditional sweet with s'mores
roasted over a bonfire.
