Tashlich Reflections
by Hadassah Simcha Kimsey


Tashlich! The water reflects back...

    As we feel the weight of our sins!

******* OUR STONES*******

         We Cast...........Far Away...we see our face once again in the ripples
of the wave!

         As far as the east is from the west...............So has Adonai
removed them!
         Thrown the stones......Into the Sea....
         Our Sins............To be remembered no more!

Teshuva!
    As we turn around!

******* OUR HEARTS*******

         Return.........Walk right
         .............He is waiting at the end of the path to receive you again
         Walk Again...........Into open arms..See His face in the ripples of
the wave!

         .............Feel Adonai surround you with His protection and His
Shekinah!

Tashlich Reflections!
    Now you have made it right again!
    His Image in you made new!
    Through Teshuvah you have made the water clear again!

Tashlich......Teshuva...... Reflections of our Heart made New Again!
