Yom Kippur

Begins at sundown on September 22. Yom Kippur is Judaism’s most sacred day of the year. On Yom Kippur, we say we're sorry. In fact, the rabbis teach that for a complete teshuvah (repentance) to take effect, it requires us to admit our sins, apologize, and set things right for the future. That demonstrates sincere remorse and a desire for change. On Yom Kippur people participate in several cutsoms and in the course of Yom Kippur we hold five prayer services.
