Tashlich Service
In the early afternoon of Rosh Hashana, at 1:45pm, the entire community joins together in a proud processional for the observance of tashlich. Representing the themes of renewal and rejuvenation, this tradition also has a way of demonstrating a spirit of communal solidarity as young and old march and sing together while en route to Spy Pond to perform a fascinating mitzvah.

Holiday Appeal
Increase your generosity of tzedakah (charity) during the High Holiday season. "Repentance, prayer, and charity take away the severity of the decree".
