The Surprising Story of Yom Kippur
Filled with rich traditions
According to Jewish tradition, God judges all during the "10 Days of Awe" between the Jewish new year, Rosh Hashanah, and Yom Kippur.
Observant Jews consider Yom Kippur and the days leading up to it a time for prayer, good deeds, reflecting on past mistakes and making amends with others.
Some very traditional Jews hold onto such rituals as swinging a live chicken around their head, then giving it to a poor family.
