We're now in the holiest period of the Jewish calendar, the 10 days between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur when God judges all of mankind and determines what will occur in the upcoming year. Not only are our own fortunes decided, but the fate of countries and nations hangs in the balance and any one good deed can push the scales in favor of blessing and life. We therefore go out of our way to find any opportunity we can to pray harder, repent sincerely, and give charity in order to be signed and sealed in the Book of Life.
Share the significance of Yom Kippur with the next generation! In our video for children, you'll learn what Yom Kippur means in Hebrew, and why Jews wear white clothing and fast on our holiest day of the year.
