That was kind of my point.
I think the only place you see this is by people who are barely frum or conservative/reform websites.
My assumption is that those in our (frum) community who do it-those who think its an essential part of Tashlich - do it in error, since there is no mention of this in the sefarim.

That’s not true. I grew up in a community that had it all, and there were plenty of people who did tashlich not on rosh hashana and threw bread. Again, I don’t know anyone who thinks it’s an essential part of tashlich. The essential part is saying the actual prayers.

This article offers a nice summary of the history.

It looks as if the temptation to feed the fish is debated as far back as the practice of davening at the water.


Thank you! This was interesting!
