Yom Kippur 2021: Holiest day in the Jewish calaner – Fresno, California

Fresno, California 2021-09-12 17:38:03 –

Yom Kippur is the holiest day of the year for people of Jewish faith. This year begins at sunset on Wednesday, September 15th and continues until sunset on Thursday, September 16th.

In English, Yom Kippur is translated into “Atonement Day”.

Yom Kippur occurs 10 days after Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.

During those 10 days, the Jewish practice self-reflects, thinks about past sins, and hopes to be written in the Book of Life next year.

Rosh Hashanah is a fun opportunity for people to eat honey-soaked apples with other sweets and celebrate the sweet and happy New Year. Yom Kippur, on the other hand, is a more solemn day when Jews fast to atone for their sins.

It begins with a prayer song called Kol Nidre, a deep spiritual prayer that marks the beginning of the Book of Life. Observing Jews then redeem during the fast and want their name to be engraved on the book.

The ram’s horn, or Shofar, blows during the closing ceremony, Neira, at the end of Yom Kippur and the beginning of the true next Jewish year.

When the sun sets at the end of Yom Kippur, Jewish family and friends gather to fast.
