YOM KIPPUR is Day of Atonement

HAPPY YOM KIPPUR

Yom Kippur is the holiest day of the year -- the day on which we are closest to G-d and to the quintessential core of our own souls. It is the "Day of Atonement" -- "For on this day He will forgive you, to purify you, that you be cleansed from all your sins before G-d" (Leviticus 16:30).

YOM KIPPUR is Day of Atonement

Yom Kippur also known as Day of Atonement, is the holiest and most solemn day of the year for the Jews. Its central themes are atonement and repentance. Jews traditionally observe this holy day with a 25-hour period of fasting and intensive prayer, often spending most of the day in synagogue services. Yom Kippur completes the annual period known in Judaism as the High Holy Days or Yamim Nora. Yom Kippur is the tenth day of the month of Tishrei. According to Jewish tradition, God inscribes each person fate for the coming year into a book, the Book of Life, on Rosh Hashanah, and waits until Yom Kippur to the verdict. During the Days of Awe, a Jew tries to amend his or her behavior and seek forgiveness for wrongs done against God.
