Yom HaKippurim

What is Yom HaKippurim?

Yom HaKippurim, also called the Day of Atonement, is the most solemn day of the Jewish year and is observed on the tenth day of the seventh month, nine days after Yom Teru`ah.

On Yom HaKippurim, if we repent, we are forgiven for our repented misdeeds and mistakes from the past year, and any we may have forgotten about from previous years.


What do you do for Yom HaKippurim?

During the ten days from Yom Teru`ah and Yom HaKippurim, a person should strive to correct the misdeeds and mistakes of the past, and to increase in good deeds in order to be purified, and merit a year of blessing and goodness in the next year.

Yom HaKippurim is a day of fasting, reflection, and prayers; and, at the end we get a fresh start at being better people.
