From Rebecca Koppel ’14 and Danny Blinderman ‘14:
To the Wesleyan Jewish Community,
This week marks the fourth and final time that I will begin a year at Wesleyan. I remember each new beginning fondly, as starting points to years full of new ideas and experiences. At the same time, they also stand out as moments of continuation and renewal for some of the most meaningful friendships and most amazing communities I have ever known.
Read after the jump to see the rest of this message and a schedule of events for Rosh Hashanah!
The Wesleyan Jewish Community is extending a special open invite for a Rosh Hashanah event with wider appeal:
The Wesleyan Jewish Community invites you to join in Tashlikh, a
Jewish eco-nature ritual during the second day of Rosh Hashanah. The
ritual involves casting away our “excess baggage” from last year as we
throw breadcrumbs into the CT river as a symbol of the parts of us we
want change in the year ahead.
People of all backgrounds are welcome.
D8: Tuesday, Sep. 18
HR: 4 PM
ZONE: The Bayit (157 Church St.)
