Yom Kippur is the Jewish Day of Atonement
A number of schools and workplaces throughout the nation will be closed in observance of Yom Kippur.
Yom Kippur is the moment in Jewish time when we dedicate our soul, mind, and body to reconciliation with God, our fellow human beings, and ourselves. Only then can we turn to God and ask for forgiveness: “And for all these, God of forgiveness, forgive us, pardon us, and grant us atonement.”.
