Day of Atonement

Yom Kippur is the final day of the High Holy Days (or High Holidays)  in the Jewish calendar that began with Rosh Hashanah (also called Jewish New Year). It is considered the holiest day of the year.

During this time, celebrants observe a period of fasting, prayer, and repentance for wrongs committed against God, as well as wrongs committed against friends and family. During the High Holy Days, God makes judgment on mankind, and on Yom Kippur, an individual’s fate is sealed for the coming year in either the Book of Life or the Book of Death. Yom Kippur is the final opportunity to make amends and seek forgiveness.

G’mar hatimah tovah – this Yom Kippur, may a small piece of our souls be, if every so briefly, inscribed, even sealed – b’sefer ha’hayim – into God’s Book of Life.”
—–Rabbi Rena Blumenthal in Yom Kippur Readings

A very important part of Yom Kippur is confessing and asking forgiveness of friends and family for any wrongs that may have been committed against them.

“Our Father, Our King, inscribe us in the book of good life.
Our Father, Our King, inscribe us in the book of salvation and redemption.
Our Father, Our King, inscribe us in the book of sustenance and support.”
—– part of the Yom Kippur liturgy
