"We throw the bread in the water because it's significant of our sins that we're washing away and we throw it into moving water so that the sins can be washed away from us and we can start fresh and clean. It's a time to look back over the year, a time to reflect on things, it's a solemn time but also a joyous time as we move forward," says Anne Yoss, Temple Emanu-El President.
Rosh Hashanah is one of the two high holy days in the Jewish religion. The other is Yom Kippur, which begins 10 days after Rosh Hashanah. That will be sundown of next Tuesday, September 25th.
