The Tashlich Prayer - Hebrew

The Tashlich Prayer - Hebrew


The verses "מי אל כמוך" allude to the Thirteen Divine Attributes of Mercy יי יי א-ל רחום. While saying these verses, keep in mind (but do not articulate) the corresponding attribute printed above it in small type. The same is true with the verses "מן המצר," which correspond to the nine attributes in the verse "יי ארך..."

If wearing a tallit katan, shake out its corners over the water.

This is the text of "Tashlich:""Who is like You, G-d, who removes iniquity and overlooks transgression of the remainder of His inheritance. He doesn't remain angry forever because he desires kindness. He will return and He will be merciful to us, and He will conquer our iniquities, and He will cast them into the depths of the seas."Give truth to Jacob, kindness to Abraham like that you swore to our ancestors from long ago."From the straits I called upon G-d, G-d answered me with expansiveness. G-d is with me, I will not be afraid, what can man do to me? G-d is with me to help me, and I will see my foes (annihilated). It is better to take refuge in G-d than to trust in man. It is better to take refuge in G-d, that to rely on nobles."Many people also read Psalms 33 and 130.

I wonder why there is no transliterated Tashlich both here and anywhere in the internet. I cant read Hebrew, but I want to say this prayer in Hebrew rather than in English. Could you help please?

Re Tashlich
The word is pronounced 'tah-sh-lee-ch' with the guttural 'ch' as in Johannes Bach.

My Backyard Pond
I had a pond built in our backyard, specifically, to be able to hold a tashlich service in our backyard every year for all of our friends and neighbours. It is amazing how many people arrive to empty their pockets. It is great. Tashlich is also a great time to make a shidduch.

My Pond Was Dug for Tashlich !
I built a pond in my backyard and stocked it with fish that actually live through the winter months under the ice. I have the pond in my yard specially for those who are friends, neighbours and people who become friends, who want to say do Taschlich on Rosha Hashana.
The fish are very hungry now waiting for all the sins that will be thrown into the pond !

Well, I was unable to say Tashlich on Rosh Hashanah. Then, I flew to Atlanta for an event and had the opportunity to say Tashlich on the banks of the Chatahoochee River. I did not have a machzor but brought along my new Ipad, and viewed your text on the shores of the river! A first for me in many ways! thanks!

Saying it in English is fine
The general rule is that Hebrew is best, but we are pretty sure G*d speaks English as well. :)
