Jewish New Year

RAMAT GAN, ISRAEL - SEPTEMBER 24: An ultra-Orthodox Jew is silhouetted against a floodlit fountain as he performs the Tashlich ceremony at the shores of a lake on September 24, 2009 in Ramat Gan, Israel. Tashlich, which means 'to cast away', is the practice by which Jews go to a flowing body of water and symbolically 'throw away' their sins during the days of repentance between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, the upcoming Jewish Day of Atonement, which begins this Sunday evening.
