Vintage Photo Friday - Rosh Hashonah

It is customary during Rosh Hashonah, the Jewish New Year, to start fresh and cast your sins into the water.  This is called the tradition of Tashlikh.  Here is a group of women on the Williamsburg Bridge in New York, 1910, performing this rite.

This weekend, Larry and I will travel to the closet body of water to our house, The Ballona Creek flood channel, and cast our sins off!
