    Lessons from a Ghost Ship: A Tashlich Ceremony at Pier 68
    Sunday, Oct 6th 4:30p to 6:00p
    Ever noticed the eerie and enormous ship docked in South Philadelphia? This is the S.S. United States, the largest ocean liner constructed entirely in the United States and the fastest to cross the Atlantic in either direction. Come on Sunday, October 6, at 4:30 PM to discuss it's history, why it's docked here, and learn other important stories about this city's past, particularly in the realm of Philadelphia's Jewish history. Leading the discussion is Jerry Silverman, experienced tour guide and historian. Afterwards, join Rabbanit Dasi Fruchter as we reflect on what it means to hold on to our past, while at the same time, letting pieces of it go as we stand at the precipice of the new year. If it is your custom, feel free to bring bread (or philly pretzels!) to toss into the Delaware. While we will see the grand smokestacks from the pier, the whole ship will be obstructed from view, so those interested are encourage to walk or drive south after the ceremony to get a full view.

Imagine this: A storefront on East Passyunk Avenue, a dynamic and busy corridor full of restaurants, boutiques, and shops. One of the storefronts is the South Philadelphia Shtiebel, and with its large and inviting windows, passersby often knock to say hello, to ask about Jewish life, to make connections, to learn together or come to a service. The Shtiebel--a place for gathering, a synagogue, and so much more-- only in its first few months, is already full of regular learning, kids playing, spirited prayer, and all kinds of conversation and community building.
