Tashlikh: a Jewish Eco-Nature Ritual

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.

Kirtan Chanting @ BuHo

Some serious sounds (“some Hebrew, some humming, some Hindi, whatever”) emanating from BuHo tomorrow night, thanks to Lily Martin ’14. This will be happening every other Wednesday, starting tomorrow:

Kirtan, or ecstatic chanting, is an ancient spiritual practice from India in which simple mantras are repeated over and over, faster and faster, allowing participants to quiet the mind and melt into the sound. It’s traditionally done with sanskrit mantras, but we’re gonna throw in some Hebrew, some humming, some Hindi, and whatever else anyone brings and would like to share.

Bring your bodies, your voices, your drums, your tambourines, your guitars, your didgeridoos, your kazoos, and your native American flutes!

We will meet in the meditation room in Buddhist house (directly across from the front door) every other Wednesday at 9:15.

Date: Tomorrow, October 5, and every other Wednesday
Time: 9:00 – 10:30 pm
Place: BuHo
