Yom Kippur !

The tenth day of the month of Tisheri is called Yom Kippur,which is considered as the day of repentance and atonement and of course the holiest day of the year. Jews observe this day fasting and mostly spending time in prayer in the Synagogue. Fasting begins at sundown and ends after nightfall the following day. Kol Nidre the Aramaic declaration,which means All Vows,is recited at the synagogue before the evening service of Yom Kippur. Kol Nidre which is recited is actually not a prayer rather a ceremonial support charged with emotional undertones since the medieval period,creating a dramatic introduction to Yom Kippur. The days of repentance begin with Rosh Hashana and end with Yom Kippur. During these ten days Jews try to amend their behaviour and seek forgiveness for the wrongs done. The day of Yom Kippur is the day confession of guilt,at the end of the day,one considers ones self absolved by God. Yom Kippur has five prayer srevices Maariv,Shacharit,Musaf,Mincha and Neilah the closing prayer. Eating and drinking,wearing leather items,bathing and washing,embrocating oneself with perfumes and lotions or any sexual intimacy. Yom Kippur is said to be the Shabbat of Shabbats. To prepare for the fast a meal much like a traditional Sabbath meal is served. A blessing over the Challah,a special bread that also accompanies the celebration of Shabbat,is said and after the meal  the candles are lighted with an accompanying blessing. The candle lighting and the Challah blessing are both traditional acts which is a part of the Yom Kippur celebration and bring in the Sabbath and other holy days.
