G’mar Chatima Tova!
May you be sealed in the Book of Life
Holidays on the Net is delighted to invite you to share in our commemoration of the holiest day in the Jewish calendar, Yom Kippur.
Known in English as the Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur falls on the tenth day of the Jewish month of Tishrei — just a week and a half after the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah. The ten-day period between the High Holy Days is known as the Ten Days of Tshuva (Repentance), a time during which deep introspection and personal atonement is to take place.
Yom Kippur is a solemn day of fasting, repentance, and fervent prayer, which concludes with the blowing of the shofar. We invite you to come learn more about each of these rituals in our Yom Kippur overview.
Yom Kippur begins at sundown Friday October 07, 2011.
Wishing you a Tzom Kal, an easy fast.
Louie and the Holiday Elves
