Tashlich is a long-standing Jewish practice usually performed on the afternoon of Rosh HaShanah. The previous year's sins are symbolically "cast off" by reciting a section from Micah that makes allusions to the symbolic casting off of sins — into a large, natural body of flowing water, in our case, the Snapper Creek Canal which flows behind Dante Fascell Park (pictured above).
The name Tashlich and the practice itself are derived from the Biblical passage (Micah 7:18-20) recited at the ceremony: "You will cast all their sins into the depths of the sea."
This is a casual service, and the Challah-eating ducks always mark the date on their calendar!
