Yom Kippur

Yom Kippur is the holiest day in Judaism and Samaritanism. It occurs annually on the 10th of Tishrei, corresponding to a date in September or early October. For traditional Jewish observants, it is primarily centered on atonement and repentance, the day's main observances consist of full fasting and ascetic behavior accompanied by a long prayer service in synagogue, as well as sin confessions. Many Jewish denominations, such as Reconstructionist Judaism focus strongly on one's goals and accomplishments and setting yearly intentions, rather than focusing on "sins." Alongside the related holiday of Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur is one of the two components of the "High Holy Days" of Judaism. It is also the last day of the Ten Days of Repentance.
