NEW YORK – UN ambassadors and officials from at least seven different countries will attend the first ever Jewish ceremony of Tashlich held at the UN on Monday.

The Permanent Mission of Israel will be hosting the event in partnership with the Forum for Cultural Diplomacy.

Among the expected attendees are representatives of countries such as the US, Australia, Canada, France, Grenada, Tanzania and Sierra Leone.

The ritual consists of throwing away the wrongdoings of the previous year into water, symbolically letting go of the burdens of the past in order to start the year with a clean slate.
