September 3 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Reset the year together in a way that combines ancient tradition and a classical Vermont experience – a dip in Lake Champlain. Join our clergy for a ritual immersion at the Oakledge Park Cove near the upper Pavilion.
Please bring a swim suit, a towel, water shoes (recommended) and clothes to change into.
You may park in the upper pavilion lot (the southern-most lot at Oakledge Park) and walk down the paved walkway (west) to the lake cove. Parking is paid in the lot, free for state park pass holders, or free on Austin Drive (with a short walk in to the park on the bike path).
Rabbi Aaron will provide a brief discussion to our group about mikveh ritual at the gathering.
Immersion is customarily done for many milestones in Jewish tradition, including before the High Holy Days.
