Reset your system with a modern spin on a 600-year-old Rosh Hashanah ritual called tashlich to get rid of last year’s bad karma and start the new year off fresh.

JCCSF and Reboot invite you to Ocean Beach for a brief, engaging ritual and joyful noise accompaniment from shofar blowers, bag pipers (Irish Piper’s Band), members of Jazz Mafia and the Ministers of Sound of the Saint John Will-I-Am Coltrane African Orthodox Church. Plus s’mores and a bonfire.
