Tues, Sept. 22nd – Yom Kippur
The Jewish calendar date begins at sundown of the night beforehand. Thus all Yom Kippur observances begin at sundown on the first secular date listed, and conclude the following day at nightfall.
Yom Kippur is also known as Day of Atonement, is the holiest day of the year for the Jewish people. Its central themes are atonement and repentance. Jewish people traditionally observe this holy day with an approximate 25-hour period of fasting and intensive prayer, often spending most of the day in synagogue services.
