While we can’t be physically together Rosh Hashanah afternoon for Tashlich (the throwing of bread or birdseed into water to represent the casting off of our sins), here are some resources that will help you observe on your own:
- First, we have this Spotify playlist by by Rafi Ellenson of Beth Emet Synagogue in Evanston, Ill., for the High Holidays: Tisha B’Av to Simchat Torah. Follow along with the liner notes.
- Second, try Tashlich Meditation and Ritual for 5781 from Yoga for Kids.
- Third, A Prayer for Tashlich from the Velveteen Rabbi.
And lastly, a reminder:
This holiday season may be very different than the ones that you have experienced in the past, and that is OK.
Do your best to create sacred space and time in any way that works for you. You might burn your sins in a fireplace — or go for a walk and think about the concepts that are present within our High Holidays liturgy.
Shana Tova, and I hope to see you all at services!
