Huntington Synagogue Congregants Cast Sins into Harbor – Well, Sort Of

Filed under: Events,News |

During the sacred period encompassing Rosh Hashanah, Jews around the world symbolically rid themselves of sins by casting crumbs into a body of water-such as Huntington Harbor.  Members of Huntington’s Temple Beth El instead place fresh, wrapped loaves of bread into containers for distribution to food banks.

Temple Beth El congregants, led by Rabbi Jeffrey Clopper will gather for Tashlich (cast off) ceremony at Gold Star Battalion Beach, Huntington Harbor on Monday, September 17, 2012, 4:00 p.m. Perhaps it’s a sin to “pollute” Huntington Harbor, especially when there are hungry people in the community.
