MA'YAN Tashlikh Ceremony

MA'YAN Tashlikh Ceremony

In the latter half of the twentieth century, Jewish feminists began to develop a repertoire of new feminist ritual. Yet they simultaneously sought a "usable past" within Judaism, so as to seamlessly link their own ritual creativity to the body of Jewish tradition. This Tashlikh ceremony in Riverside Park in New York City was sponsored by MA'YAN: The Jewish Women's Project. The cantor is Naomi Hirsch.
