A Jewish man blew a shofar, or ram's horn, while others prayed during a tashlich service by the Mediterranean sea in Ashdod, Israel, last week on Rosh  Hashana. Tashlich is a ritual in which Jews symbolically throw their sins into moving water on the first day of Rosh Hashana, which marks the start of their new year and the High Holy Days. Yom Kippur, which brings the period to a close, ends at sundown Saturday.
