We see these holidays on the calendar, Rosh Hashanah (Sept 9-10) and Yom Kippur (Sept 18-19).  Maybe we have been taught to say, Happy New Year to our Jewish friends because it is in fact the beginning of their new year.  But what exactly is Yom Kippur? For Jews, it is the holiest day of the year.  It begins at sunset on the 18th and goes until the breaking of the fast 25 hours later.  It is a time of deep prayer, fasting and synagogue services. These high holy days of the Jewish year are very important because it is a time to recall past sins, repent and be right with God for the new year.  It is such a beautiful ritual the Jews partake in and one we can learn from as well. Share why you think it is important to understand this holy day and how it can enhance your own spiritual life. 1-833-288-3986.
