Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement)

Today, 10/8, is the High Holy Day Yom Kippur, considered to be the holiest day of the year, closing out the Ten Days of Awe where the Books of Judgment stand open. We’re told to “afflict our souls” on this day, and traditionally, it’s observed as a complete fast with no food or drink. 

So while we’ll be having a regularly scheduled service, we won’t be making coffee or having a group meal until after Havdalah and sun down.

Shalom. -J
