Tonight at sundown begins one of the most serious and introspective Jewish holiday we all know and love (or you know, have grown to love). It’s Yom Kippur, AKA The Day of Atonement. It’s a day of fasting, abstinence, and prayer. It’s a time for everyone to actually feel the collective sins in all ways–emotionally, spiritually, and physically.
In order to get in the introspective mindset, we created a roundup of both new and classic Yom Kippur posts below:
