*Shofars will be distributed on a first come first requested basis, priority will be given to those who did not receive a shofar last year.

On Rosh Hashanah, Jews around the world participate in the ancient ritual of Tashlich. We go to a body of water and symbolically cast off the sins of the past year by throwing bread crumbs into the water to start the New Year with purity of heart. However, this is not the only time humans cast their “sins” into the sea.

Every year, approximately six million tons of human-made trash enter the water, posing health and safety hazards to the animals that call the sea their home. Marine debris is a blatant violation of the fundamental Jewish ethical principle Bal Tashchit. Repair the Sea is adding a modern ritual to the Jewish tradition: a local clean-up on the Sunday between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Also known as Reverse Tashlich.
