In the late afternoon of Rosh Hashana, 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 perform a fascinating mitzvah.
Mincha will be at 6:00 pm on September 30 followed by Tashlich and Maariv.
