Yom Kippur

Yom Kippur (literally, “Day of Atonement”) is observed ten days after Rosh HaShanah with fasting, prayer, repentance: the sacred act of teshuvah. Yom Kippur is the holiest of all Jewish Festivals and holidays.

Yom Kippur enables us to put aside our physical desires and to concentrate on our spiritual needs through quiet reflection, self-evaluation, community and prayer. It is customary in the days before Yom Kippur to seek out friends and family whom we have wronged and personally ask for their forgiveness.
