RICHLAND -- Services for Rosh Hashana, the Jewish new year, will begin at 7 p.m. Sunday.

Services also will be at 9:30 a.m. Monday and Tuesday.

There will be a Tashlich ceremony at the river in Howard Amon Park at 5 p.m. Monday in Richland. Tashlich symbolizes the casting out of sins by throwing bread or rocks into the river.

Rabbi Jack Izakson of Spokane will be leading Rosh Hashana services, as well as shabbat services this weekend and next.

Rosh Hashanah begins a period called "The Days of Awe" -- the holiest period in the Hebrew calendar -- which ends with Yom Kippur, or Day of Atonement, ten days later. Chanting of Kol Nidre will begin Yom Kippur services at 6:15 p.m. Sept. 25.

All services except Tashlich are at Congregation Beth Sholom, 312 Thayer Drive, Richland.
