5:00 PM - 6:30 PMStuyvesant Town Playground #3

We're thrilled to announce that sign language (ASL) interpretation will be provided on Rosh Hashanah for an opportunity to learn about Tashlich, the ceremonial casting of our sins (as small pieces of bread) upon the water, and actually do it ourselves after a outdoor blowing of the Shofar that's open to everyone, and hope that you can join us!

WHAT: A family-oriented event to learn about (and, later, observe the ritual of) Tashlich, followed by an outdoor Shofar-blowing for everyone on Rosh Hashanah's 2nd Day (This usually happens on the 1st Day but not, as is true this year, when that day is also Shabbat)

WHEN: 5:00 PM -- 6:30 PM ET (GMT-5) on Sunday, September 17th

WHERE: Stuyvesant Town's Playground #3, just south of 610 East 20th Street, near Avenue C, in Manhattan (, after which we'll walk to the nearby East River for Tashlich

WHO: Bram Weiser, whose work will be underwritten thanks to UJA-Federation of New York's Jewish Community Deaf Interpreter Fund

RSVP: Please email Bram at with the names and email addresses of those who'd like to attend.

Thanks, and we’ll hope to see you there!
