Pray for the peace of Jerusalem

May they prosper who love you

- Psalm 122:6

Tashlich

Tashlich

Another tradition, commemorated on the first day of the feast, by the more observant, is “Tashlich” based on God’s promise to “cast their sins into the sea.”  The men symbolically cast off the sins of the previous year by tossing pebbles or breadcrumbs into flowing water.

Not coincidentally the rabbis tell us that Rosh Hashanah is the day when we coronate God as King of the Universe.

They might be right, for other reasons as well; I suggest this holiday IS about the King of Israel.

Isaiah 44:6

“Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel, and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: ‘I am the First and I am the Last; besides Me there is no God.

In this holiday we see the King of Israel and His Redeemer are one.

PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM AND FOR ISRAEL TO PREPARE FOR THE COMING
