☞   Tashlikh

This is an archive of prayers, instructions, or other supplements to the praxis of Tashlikh, the ritual of casting away, releasing or expurgating, one’s transgressions from the previous year. The medieval Ashkenazi Jewish custom may be performed anytime between Rosh haShanah (the first of Tishrei) and Hoshana Rabbah (the final day of the festival of Sukkot).
