Don’t Say “Happy Yom Kippur”


Other wishes you want to avoid on Yom Kippur include: Celebrate! Rock on! and Woot!

Yom Kippur is the Jewish Day of Atonement. On this day, Jews ask God to forgive our sins and to write us into the Book of Life for another year.

Before God’s forgiveness may be asked, though, forgiveness should be sought from people whom one has wronged. In the Jewish religion, there is no intermediary between God and the person praying. Each person is responsible and accountable for his/her own actions and the only one who can forgive a wrong is the person against whom it has been committed. Read more about Yom Kippur.
