TASHLICH: CHANGE OF LOCATION

Due to the weather and parking conditions, the location of our Tashlich Service has been changed from Giant Springs State Park to the Weissman walking bridge on Central Ave W.

We will gather for Tashlich after the conclusion of our Rosh Hashanah morning service, at approximately 12:30 PM on the bridge. There is parking available in the parking lot for the federal courthouse.

During Tashlich, attending congregants will decide the location for the no host Congregation lunch.

    THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ELCA DECLARATION TO THE JEWISH COMMUNITY

    In 1984, the Lutheran World Federation Assembly adopted a statement titled “Luther, Lutheranism, and the Jews.” Ten years later, the ELCA Church Council adopted “Declaration of ELCA to the Jewish Community,” repudiating Luther’s anti-Judaic writings and reaching out in right relationship to our Jewish neighbors. On the occasion of this — the 25th anniversary of this foundational inter-religious document in the life of the ELCA — the Churchwide Assembly paused in the presence of our Jewish partners to recommit to what we have, as a church, declared about our past, present and future in Lutheran-Jewish relations. Pastor Darrell Jodock, chair of the ELCA consultative panel on Lutheran-Jewish Relations, and Pastor Peg Shultz-Akerson, a member of that panel, led the assembly in a “Litany of Confession” based on the 1994 declaration. This litany is intended to be used in other local, synodical or national settings as appropriate. In late October the Institute for Jewish-Christian Understanding at Muhlenberg College will also highlight this anniversary and look toward the future.
