    Tashlikh: On Rosh Hashanah, it is customary to symbolically release our transgressions and to cast off that which holds us back from doing complete teshuvah. There are two opportunities for Tashlikh: 4:30 pm at Newton City Hall Pond with Rabbi Toba Spitzer, & a congregant-led gathering at 4:30 pm at the Beach at Jamaica Pond. Please bring small beans (no bread, please) to cast into the water.  All ages are encouraged to come!
