Yom Kippur

Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, is the culmination of the Jewish High Holidays. The most solemn day of the Jewish year, Yom Kippur is traditionally observed by praying and fasting. Those who observe the holiday reflect on the previous year and how they might become better people in the year ahead.

On campus, Hillel professionals around the world work tirelessly to give students access to the spiritual resonance of Yom Kippur, helping students tap into the deep power of Jewish tradition. Many Hillels offer a variety of Yom Kippur services, often led by students, and meals to break the fast.
