Yom Kippur in your pocket

Share Button

Yom Kippur is the holiest day in Jewish calendar. Its central themes are atonement and repentance. Jews observe this day with a 25-hour period of fasting and intensive prayer, spending most of the day in synagogue services. Yom Kippur completes the High Holy Days.

G-d inscribes each person’s fate for the coming year into a Book of Life, on Rosh Hashanah, and waits until Yom Kippur to “seal” the verdict.

The Yom Kippur prayer service includes several unique aspects. One is the actual number of prayer services. Unlike a regular day, Yom Kippur has five prayer services (Ma’ariv; Shacharit; Musaf; Mincha; and Ne’ilah). The prayer services also include a public confession of sins (Vidui) and a unique prayer dedicated to the special Yom Kippur avodah (service) of the Kohen Gadol in the Holy Temple in Jerusalem.

Erev Yom Kippur is the day preceding Yom Kippur, corresponding to the 9th day of Tishrei. This day is commemorated with two festive meals, the giving of charity, and asking others for forgiveness.

Five prohibitions are traditionally observed, as detailed in the Mishnah (tractate Yoma 8:1):

  1. No eating and drinking
  2. No wearing of leather shoes
  3. No bathing or washing
  4. No anointing oneself with perfumes or lotions
  5. No marital relations

May we be written and sealed in the Book of Life for a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year! Wishing you a meaningful, easy fast.
