Lexie Goss, 15, and her brother Emerson, 13, of Temple Beth Am, have an impromptu sound-off with ram's horns, or shofar, after participating in the Jewish ritual Tashlich at Matthews Beach on Thursday, September 5, 2013. Since the late medieval period, members of the faith typically perform the ritual at the nearest free-flowing body of water in celebration of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.
