The Surprising Story of Yom Kippur

Happy Yom Kippur!

Established by Moses himself – directed by the Almighty -- Yom Kippur is the Day of Atonement, the holiest and most important holiday in Judaism, the day when the entire nation’s sins are forgiven.

A solemn day of fasting and prayer, it is celebrated on the 10th day of the Hebrew month of Tishrei, 10 days after Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year – which means in today’s calendar, it changes from year to year, just like Passover and the other Jewish holidays.
