What is Rosh Hashanah?
What is Tashlich?
The Hebrew word tashlich
literally means "You shall cast away." In the book of Micah (7:18-20) we find the verse: "And you shall cast (tashlich
) into the depths of the sea all their sins." Traditionally, Jewish communities throughout the world have taken Micah's words to heart by gathering on Rosh Hashanah and symbolically casting away their sins by throwing breadcrumbs into a lake, stream or ocean.
