Rosh Hashanah, the two-day celebration and time of personal reflection that marks the Jewish New Year, begins Sunday.
If you are looking for ways to spend the holiday, look no further. There are a number of High Holiday events in the East Bay.
Below is Patch's list for the Tri-Valley. If you have any events to add to the list, let us know in comments and we will add your suggestions.
SUNDAY, SEPT. 16
The Tri-Valley Cultural Jews are having a celebration on Sunday. Their Rosh Hashanah Tashlikh is at 4 p.m. Meet at the Bothwell Center located at 2466 8th Street in Livermore and walk down to some running water for a short ceremony.
After walking back, at 5 p.m. the group will have a potluck dinner. At 6 p.m. they will have our Secular Rosh Hashanah ceremony, with readings and
music, followed by a reception with honeycake baked by their Jewish Culture School students, and apples and honey.
Children are welcome. They are asking people to bring a dish to share and, if they like, a donation of canned or boxed food for the food bank. Free to members. $15 for adult (over 13) non-members.
Please let us know via the comments section if we are missing any other local Rosh Hashanah ceremonies and we will add them to the list.
