Rosh Hashanah, also considered Jewish New Year, takes place 163 days after the first day of the Passover is celebrated. During the holiday religious poems or piyyuttim and the Amidah prayer are read at synagogue services. A very special part of Rosh Hashanah is the the Shofar, a rams horn, which is blown several times during the service. On the afternoon of Rosh Hashanahs first day the Tashlikh ceremony takes place. People gather near a natural flowing body of water to cast their sins into the water, some actually physically toss pebbles or bread into the water to symbolize their sins. Traditional and personal prayers are offered in a ceremony that was once individual and deeply personal but now is typically a group ceremony.
