Yom Kippur

Yom Kippur ("Day of Atonement") is the tenth day of the month of Tishrei. It is the holiest day of the Jewish year. On this day, G-d seals our fate for the coming year, therefore, the entire day is spent fasting and praying to G-d for forgiveness and a good year.

This year (5774/2013-2014) Yom Kippur begins on Friday evening, September 13, and continues until Saturday night, September 14, 2013.
