Resource Description
You might be wondering, “What in the world is Tashlich?!” Well, you’ve come to the right place to find the answer! 

Tashlich is an ancient Jewish ritual, where Jews stand next to a body of water, such as a sea or river, and recite special verses in order to cast away their sins. Symbolically, we do this in order to heal our relationship with God and initiate a crucial part in the process of repenting. 

In just a short, 2 minute comic video, you can go under the sea and swim with the fishes (not literally, of course) and learn more about Tashlich. Click below to watch the video. Joey Aquatic Adventure
