"You will cast all their sins into the depths of the sea."

Tashlich is a long-standing practice starting in afternoon of Rosh Hashanah until Yom Kippur. It is the symbolic "casting off" of the previous year's sins It is done by throwing pieces of bread crumbs or lint into a large, natural body of flowing water .
