Or Tzedek News: Tashlich at Lathrop

Or Tzedek teens will be gathering on Oct. 2, 3-5 pm, at Lathrop Homes, one of Chicago’s oldest public housing developments, to observe Tashlich.

“In Tashlich,” says Rebecca Katz, JCUA’s teen programs coordinator, “we are encouraged to go to a large body of flowing water (like an ocean, lake or river) to reflect upon what we would like to dispose of in our behavior or way of ‘being’ in the past year, as part of our commitment to improve ourselves in the coming year. For a social justice twist on this Jewish ritual, we will cast stones in the water representing the unjust laws and obstacles to social justice, as well as changes we want to make in our personal lives.”

Find out more about this unusual observance, along with news about Or Tzedek’s upcoming blog and the “Shavua-Ton” for new teen leaders, in the newest edition of the Or Tzedek newsletter.
