Yom Kippur Explained

HOT TREND TODAY FROM UNCLE GOOGLE Sabtu, 18 September 2010 ,

'Have an easy fast' or 'Have a meaningful fast' is the proper way to greet someone on Yom Kippur, one of Judaism's holiest days. Fasting de-emphasizes worldly needs so people can focus on spirituality.

Another tradition is blowing the shofar, a ram's horn, to mark the end of the 25-hour fast. The shofar is also used 10 days earlier for Rosh Hashanah.

The name 'Yom Kippur' means Day of Atonement and is dedicated to making up for the past year's sins.
