Tashlich comes from the Hebrew word meaning “to cast,”. During the 10 Days of Awe Jews of  Ashkenazi and Sephardic communities come together to participate in an ancient Judaic custom of casting away our sins. Special verses are recited next to a body of water, such as a sea, river, stream, lake or pond. After, concluding the verses, bread crumbs, symbolic of our sins, are shaken out into the water.

         The goal of Tashlich is to cast both our sins and the Heavenly prosecutor (a.k.a. the Satan) into the Heavenly sea. And when we shake               our clothes after the Tashlich prayer, this is a tangible act to achieve the spiritual goal of shaking sins from our soul.

         Needless to say, the physical motions near the water and fish of Tashlich are not what grant us atonement. But if we pay attention to                 the symbolism and apply the sincere desire to heal our relationship with G‑d as portrayed in the physical demonstrations of Tashlich,                 then it serves as a crucial part in the process of repenting and returning to G‑d in purity.

         May we all shake ourselves from sin and be signed and sealed in the Book of Life for a good and sweet new year! (Ref. Nechama Dina              (Dinka) Kumer, Contributor to  Chabad.org)

If you are interested, come and join us at the above location for a brief and meaningful service. Don’t forget the bread crumbs!

Shalom and Shanah tovah umetukah

Peace and Good and sweet year
