Yom Kippur

Jewish people from all over the world will honor Yom Kippur or the "Day of Atonement" .

Yom Kippur is the most important holiday for the Jewish people. It is a day in which they feel atonement and repentance for the past year and make amends to be a better person. Atonement and repentance are felt through fasting and abstaining from physical pleasures.

Yom Kippur occurs on the tenth and final day of the Ten Days of Repentance which begin with Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. According to Jewish tradition,during the Ten Days of Repentance, a Jew tries to amend his behavior and seek forgiveness for wrongs done against God and against his fellow man. At the end of Yom Kippur, one considers himself absolved by God.

Many observers of the holiday spend their day in the synagogue, in prayer. Services can last for most of the day and end at nightfall, with the blowing of the shofar. Then at sunset there is a feast or breaking of the fast.
