Outdoor In-Person Tashlich (Releasing the Year and Our Misdeeds)

Sunday, September 20, 2020 2 Tishrei 5781

3:30 PM - 4:15 PMWillamette Park (off S.W. Macadam)

We gather by a flowing body of water to take stock, cast out our misdeeds and begin to be cleansed. Tashlich is a short ritual: a bit of music, an intention or prayer, and (this year) the sounding of the shofar. Then we go to do our individual casting away into the river.

Those who participate must wear masks, keep 8 feet from others not in their household/germpod and RSVP by Sept. 14 so that we can maintain maximum 25 people in each ritual and let you know of any plan changes; please do not come without RSVP. You can bring a percussion or other instrument if you like; we will not be singing. Thanks for helping us all stay safe.

We will begin together on the Plaza right behind The Hampton Opera Center (Portland Opera) – to the east of the building at 211 SE Caruthers St, Portland, OR 97214. There should be plenty of parking nearby. We will spread out on the bridge for our casting away. This change is because of the mayoral declaration closing all Portland parks until 9/24. We will only gather if the AQI is below 150, using this link: Bring: Masks, of course.
