What is Repair the Lake?
On Rosh HaShanah, Jews around the world participate in the ritual of Tashlich. We go to a body of water and reflect on the past year by throwing bread crumbs into the water to start the New Year with purity of heart.
As we reflect we are reminded that every year, approximately six million tons of human-made trash enter the water, posing health and safety hazards to the animals that call our lakes and oceans their home.
This year, Hillel along with UW Madison are adding a modern ritual to the Jewish tradition: a local clean-up on between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Also known as Reverse Tashlich.
