Tashlich pictures 1

Between Rosh HaShanah (Jewish New Year) and Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement, 10 days later) Jews go to a body of water, preferably one with fish, and throw bread into it. They also say a little prayer that their sins should be cast off as they cast off the bread. You can see why this is done right before Yom Kippur, a day of Judgement.
