Yom Kippur

Yom Kippur, also known as the Day of Atonement, holds the utmost significance in Judaism as the holiest day. Spanning approximately 25 hours, this observance is characterized by fasting and prayer, aligning with the themes of atonement and repentance. On Yom Kippur, those who observe the holiday are called upon to refrain from food and drink, as well as activities like bathing and marital relations. Instead, individuals are encouraged to dedicate the day to seeking forgiveness from God for their sins and contributing to charitable causes.
