[ 0 ] October 8, 2019 |

JERUSALEM, Israel – Millions of Jews around the world are preparing their hearts and minds for the holiest day on the Jewish calendar – Yom Kippur – or the Day of Atonement.

Yom Kippur begins on the evening of Tuesday, October 8 and will end Wednesday evening, October 9. Yom Kippur is a solemn day of prayer and fasting.

In Israel, the entire country stops for 25 hours as Jews go to synagogues with their families to ask God to forgive them and the entire Jewish people of their sins. The roads shut down and the highways go silent in observation of this holy day. Ben Gurion International Airport takes a daylong hiatus, along with television and radio.
