Tashlikh marks looking back at the year just completed and forward to the year just beginning. Jews celebrate several “new years,” namely Passover, marking the new year of being free, and Tu B’Shevat, marking the birthday of the trees. Tashlikh enables us to take stock of what is past and to look forward to the potential for growth in the new year.

The setting in the beautiful Duke Gardens along a small stream is an ideal location for getting to know other members of our congregation. Children can play on a nearby lawn.

Bring a picnic and stay a while. Please meet us at the gazebo inside of the Duke Gardens grounds. Maps are generally available at the entrance. However, once you enter the garden, go to bottom of the stairs, and turn left at the Rose garden. The gazebo is a short walk on the right.
