Yom+Kippur

Sammie Smulyan '22, Staff Writer

From sundown on Tuesday the 18th to sundown on Wednesday the 19th, Yom Kippur is celebrated in the Jewish Community. It is considered the holiest holiday in the Jewish year, Jewish people fast eight days after Rosh Hashanah, which is the Jewish New Year. The idea of fasting is to atone for sins and reflect upon the individual’s   life. Which is why it is called the Day of Atonement.
