Yom Kippur will begin in tonight at sundown.
Yom Kippur is the holiest day of the year, when we are closest to G‑d and to the essence of our souls. Yom Kippur means “Day of Atonement,” as the verse states, “For on this day He will forgive you, to purify you, that you be cleansed from all your sins before G‑d.”
According to tradition, it is on Yom Kippur that God decides each person’s fate, so Jews are encouraged to make amends and ask forgiveness for sins committed during the past year. The holiday is observed with a 25-hour fast and a special religious service. Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah are known as Judaism’s “High Holy Days.”
I hope leftist Jews step back and think about what the are doing to our people.
Wishing all my Jewish readers a safe and easy fast. Here in New York, Jews are now attacked daily on the streets thanks to the de Blasio and the new Nazi Democrat party. Be careful out there.
‘May you be sealed in the Book of Life’
US President Donald Trump published a special message ahead of Yom Kippur, the holiest day in the Jewish calendar, which begins at sundown on Tuesday.
“Melania and I wish all Jewish people a blessed Yom Kippur.”
“Known as the ‘Sabbath of Sabbaths,’ Yom Kippur is the holiest of days in the Jewish faith and the culmination of the High Holy Days. Through teshuva, tefilla, and tzedakah, Jews on Yom Kippur reach toward God to reunite and seek spiritual closeness to our Creator. As the day’s services conclude, the final great blast of the shofar signals the end of the Day of Atonement and a strengthening and renewal of the spiritual bond with God,” wrote Trump.
“On this day, as Jews around the world stand in front of the open ark, facing the holy Torah and asking God’s forgiveness, Melania and I pray that He may seal you in the Book of Life for the coming year and grant His people a year of sweetness and plenty,” he concluded.
