It is thought that the round challahs, because they have no end, symbolize our wish for a year in which life and blessings continue without end. It is also thought that the round shape can reflect the ongoing cycle of years and seasons. Wait, it also resembles a crown which could mean God’s sovereignty, a common theme throughout the High Holy Days.
Tashlich (meaning “to cast”) is a ritual that usually takes place on Rosh Hashanah afternoon and involves tossing small pieces of bread into a body of water to symbolize casting away our wrongdoings of the past year.

Donate to Mazon: A Jewish Response to Hunger
When storms of uncertainty upend the foundations of safety and security, our Holy Days urge us to face our own places of turmoil. Through words, through story, through song we will name today’s tempests and seek to find our own place of being in this time and place.
Every place is a space for prayer and every moment is an opportunity to encounter the Divine. Explore High Holidays @ Home.
