Tashlich Booklet-Rabbi Barry Dov Katz

It is custom to go to a place where you can see a body of water on the first day of Rosh Hashana (the second day if the first is Shabbat,)  to think about the past year, and symbolically cast one's sins into the water. If possible, choose a place with flowing water which have fish in it and where you can get close enough to throw crumbs (or leaves, twigs or small stones) into the water. If you can't do it on Rosh Hashana, you can do it until the last day of Sukkot.

In 2020,  we will not gather as a community but we encourage people to set a time to observe this custom with family and friends maintaining physical distance. This booklet to the right includes  prayers and kavvanot (meditations) for this ritual.
