Yom Kippur In Brief

What: Yom Kippur fast day is the holiest day of the year, when we are closest to G‑d and to the essence of our souls. Yom Kippur means “Day of Atonement,” as the verse states, “For on this day He will forgive you, to purify you, that you be cleansed from all your sins before G‑d.” Lev. 16:30.

When: The 10th day of Tishrei (in 2023, from several minutes before sunset on Sunday, Sept. 24, until after nightfall on Monday, Sept. 25), 10 days after Yom Teruah/Rosh Hashanah.

How: For nearly 26 hours we “afflict our souls” by avoiding the following five actions:

  • Eating or drinking (in case of need, consult a medical professional and a rabbi)
  • Wearing leather shoes
  • Applying lotions or creams
  • Washing or bathing
  • Engaging in conjugal relations

Like Shabbat, no work is to be done, and special holiday candles are lit before the onset of the holy day. White is worn to honor this day. 1

Please join us as we observe the Holiest Day of the year, Yom Kippur.
