Reset your system with our modern spin on a 600-year-old Rosh Hashanah ritual called tashlih. This custom of ridding ourselves of all our bad vuggum (karma) from the previous year and getting a fresh start for the new one is traditionally enacted by tossing bread into the ocean. Join us by the shore at Ocean Beach for a brief, engaging ritual and joyful noise accompaniment from shofar* blowers, bag pipers, members of Jazz Mafia and the Ministers of Sound of the Saint John Will-I-Am Coltrane African Orthodox Church. Bring stale bread to share and a shofar, if you have one, to blow along with some of San Francisco's finest players. Enjoy our twist on the traditional sweet with s'mores and Rocky's Fry Bread.
*A shofar is a ram's horn sounded multiple times on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur as a wake-up call to change.
