Join us for the East Side Jew’s annual pilgrimage down to the LA River, where we will perform the ritual of Tashlich, led by Rabbi Susan Goldberg of Nefesh. During the intimate evening contemplation and reflection, you’ll enjoy storyelling by storytelling by Greg Kestenbaum and Thomas Eirls, as well as music and delicious food and drinks, including The Falafel Factory food truck.
The evening includes the opportunity to walk to the banks of the river as a community to symbolically let go of any thoughts or actions from the previous year that no longer serve you. Mind Travel, an immersive musical experience from composer and pianist Murray Hidray, will be returning this year. The Reboot 10Q booth will also be back, along with and animal tarot card reading by Nikki Nachum. You can also cast off your burdens, through the art of haiku. Tell Ars Poetica poet Micah Greenberg something you’d like to release, and he will write a custom small poem for you to commemorate and keep, or let go. The event will also feature a movement activity with Amie Segal and Havdalah with Shayna Cohen.
