HMI at Home began as our virtual programming initiative to keep us all connected throughout the pandemic. Now, HMI at Home is so much more than virtual events. It encompasses incredible opportunities for meaningful connection that happen online and in person in your city! From Shabbat to holidays to challah baking, the HMI community is here for you.

HMI SF Bay Area: CTRL ALT DEL Tashlique at Ocean Beach
September 26 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm PDT
Reset your system with our modern spin on a 600-year-old Rosh Hashanah ritual called tashlich. This custom of ridding ourselves of all our bad vuggum (“karma”) from the previous year and getting a fresh start for the new one is traditionally enacted by tossing crumbs into the ocean.
Join us by the shore at Ocean Beach (near JFK Drive across from Beach Chalet) for a brief, engaging ritual. This year, we will provide birdseed instead of bread to be better stewards of our wildlife and environment. Bring a ram’s horn shofar ( if you have one!), to blow along with some of San Francisco’s finest players from the Jazz Mafia, the Irish Pipers Band and the Church of John Coltrane.
Tashlique is presented by Reboot with the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco and Honeymoon Israel.
