Rosh Hashana In Uman, Ukraine
Hasidic Jews enter a pond before celebrations for the Jewish New Year in Uman on September 8, 2010. Though the New Year is a happy occasion, there is a somber component to the holiday; Judaism's holiest day, Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, follows nine days later and a ceremony called Tashlich is held on Rosh Hashana day that involves visiting a body of water and casting one's sins away, often symbolized by pieces of bread.
