Goats, Breadcrumbs and Horns

Year after year, we sit at Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services as rabbis talk about throwing breadcrumbs in the water and sending goats off a cliff — carrying our sins. We listen to the stirring sound of the shofar. And we watch a few people pound their chests and fall to their knees.
What does any of this have to do with repentance or wiping the slate clean for the New Year?
The Streicker Center is honored to present a special program with Hadar — a full-time, gender-egalitarian yeshiva in North America — to help you discover the origins of these ancient practices and offer an opportunity to move out of the pew and put your whole body into the High Holidays.
Rabbi Elie Kaunfer
Rabbi Avi Killip

Moderated by author/journalist Abigail Pogrebin.
This will be a fully participatory program. Bring your own shofar or use one of ours. Live goats included.
