Time & Location:

Lower Frick Park Play Area, Pittsburgh, PA 15217, USA

Details:

We will meet in Frick Park, in the parking lot by the soccer fields. Tashlich begins at 3:30, and our Reverse Tashlich cleanup will begin at 4:00.  Be sure to wear clothes (and shoes!) that can get dirty and wet. We will provide garbage bins and gloves. We will clean for about an hour.  All ages are welcome. There will be cleanup activities both in and out of the water. 

TASHLICH is the traditional Rosh Hashanah ritual by which we symbolically cast away sins into a body of water and give ourselves a fresh start to the new year.

REVERSE TASHLICH transforms the ancient ritual to tackle the modern global issue of water pollution. Participants work together to remove potentially harmful debris from the water.

This year we will be joined by our friends from Temple Sinai as we perform a clean, litter-free means by which to cast away our sins, before setting out to clean up litter from the streams and streambeds in Frick Park. Meet in the Lower Frick Park parking lot by the soccer field ready to get dirty and maybe even a little bit wet. We will provide gloves, buckets, and snacks. 

We are proud to be part of this national effort to connect our spiritual traditions with environmental stewardship. For more information on Reverse Tashlich, click here.
