Yom Kippur

Yom Kippur (Heb., “Day of Atonement”). Annual day of fasting and atonement, occurring in the fall on Tishri 10 (just after Rosh Hashanah); the most solemn and important occasion of the Jewish religious year.

The Shehecheyanu:

"Baruch atah adonai eloheinu melech ha'olam shecheyanu v'kiy'manu v'higyanu lazman hazeh".

"Blessed are you, Our God,
Creator of time and space,
Who has supported us,
Protected us, and brought us to this moment".
