Bert Chessin casts bird seed into a creek near the Clark Fork Natural Area during a Tashlich ceremony Tuesday afternoon. Tashlich is observed on the afternoon of the first day of Rosh Hashanah, symbolically casting off the sins of the previous year. Chessin was thinking about personal faults and trying to connect better with family out of state, he said. “I was basically saying learn from this and learn to take care of yourself. (I’m) casting away whatever barriers I have to taking care of myself.”
