Is there a reliable Jewish source that encourages throwing bread when performing tashlich?

  • Some are against it because when the body of water is in a public place carrying the bread to the water would be problematic on yomtov. Since it is for no purpose – Menachem Sep 23 '13 at 18:01
  • Maybe the Tammei Minhagim discusses this – sam Sep 23 '13 at 21:00
  • To my knowledge, every source that discusses the practice of throwing bread to the fish by Tashlich is opposed to it. – LazerA Sep 24 '13 at 19:46

  • @sam, it doesn't AFAICT. – msh210 Oct 6 '13 at 7:16
