:) Pinner said: Photo reminds me of the Hymn: The Love of God (3rd Verse) Could we with ink the ocean fill, And were the skies of parchment made, Were every stalk on earth a quill, And every man a scribe by trade; To write the love of God above Would drain the ocean dry; Nor could the scroll contain the whole, Though stretched from sky to sky.
Tashlikh is a Hebrew word meaning "casting off" and is a Jewish tradition performed on the afternoon of Rosh Hashanah. The custom is to go to a large, natural flowing water (such as a river, lake or sea, etc), and 'throw' into it all previous year's sins. This is an interpretation of the bible ceremony: "You will cast all their sins into the depths of the sea." (Micah 7:18-20).
