Children and adults are invited to join Rabbi Lenny after the Rosh Hashanah morning service at 12:30 p.m. at Foster Park (Pavilion 2) for a brief Tashlich service and story when we cast away our sins for the coming year by throwing bread into the St. Mary's River.

Do you know what the hardest word to say is? Join us to find out! PJ Library is partnering with the Jewish Federation of Fort Wayne, Congregation Achduth Vesholom and Congregation B’nai Jacob for a very special Tashlich program on Rosh Hashanah for children and their families.

Questions? Please contact the Jewish Federation of Fort Wayne at (260) 456-0400 or email at office@fwjf.org. Thank you to the generosity of the Dr. Harry W. Salon Foundation for making PJ Library Fort Wayne possible!

What is Tashlich? The Hebrew word tashlich means "You shall cast away." In the book of Micah (7:18-20) we find the verse: "And you shall cast (tashlich) into the depths of the sea all their sins."  Traditionally, Jewish communities throughout the world have taken Micah's words to heart by gathering on Rosh Hashanah and symbolically casting away their sins by throwing breadcrumbs into a river, lake, stream or ocean.

High Holy Days Food Drive: On Rosh Hashanah, please pick up paper shopping bags at the Temple. Fill them with non-perishable food items for local families to return on Yom Kippur. Please consider bringing in at least one bag of food for each member of your family.
