Regarding Eliezer Wenger's post in V2 #88 about Tashlich [throwing crumbs
into the water on Rosh Hashanah] seeming to be 'assur' [forbidden] on Yom
Tov, I refer to the sefer Taamai Haminhagim. He's also not to happy about
it. However, he does bring down a possible rationale for it. He says that
just like we're showing mercy on animals, so too should Hashem show mercy
on us at this time
of year.
