Yom Kippur

Yom Kippur

Yom Kippur is the ‘Day of Atonement’, ten days after Rosh Hashanah. On Yom Kippur Jewish people fast for 25 hours, spend the majority of the day in the synagogue, and think about the errors they made in the past year, and how they can make better choices next year. It is the holiest day in the Jewish calendar.
