(WTNH)–People in the Jewish commiunity in Connecticut and around the world are celebrating one of the holiest days of their year, Rosh Hashanah.
To celebrate the Jewish New Year, members of Congregation Beth Ahm in Windsor threw bread into the water on Monday, as a symbolic way of casting off their sins.
“We look upon ourselves, self reflection, self introspection, and what kind of people we want to be. We’re all good people, but we want to be better people, and we’re looking through prayer and community how to do that for ourselves,” said
This is Day 2 of the two-day celebration, which ends at sundown on Tuesday.
