When: Sunday, October 6, 4-6:30 pm
Where: Various starting locations in Northampton, details below

What: March from Northampton and Hadley to the boat launch below the Coolidge Bridge for Tashlich ritual and rally. The ritual of throwing bread crumbs to represent a cleansing is traditional during the Jewish high holy days. Instead of breadcrumbs, we will cast pebbles to represent the sins against immigrants done by the federal government in our name. Everyone is welcome to attend.

- 4 pm/Pulaski Park, Northampton;
- 4pm/Corner of Railroad St at West St, Hadley (park allowed at Paragus and Most Holy Redeemer Churches);
- 4:30 pm/Sheldon Field (Northampton)
5 pm--Rally and Tashlich ritual. Gather at the Coolidge Bridge Boat Launch (down from the bikeway parking lot).
