Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) is Wednesday, Sept. 15. This most solemn religious fast of the Jewish year is also the last of 10 days of penitence that began on Rosh Hashanah, most commonly referred to as the Jewish New Year, last week. As our brothers and sisters of the Jewish faith conclude this time of atonement, fasting, and prayer, we join them in prayer and reflection — as we work together to build a better world.
