Out of all the Jewish holidays, many consider Yom Kippur to be the most celebrated one. Yom Kippur means the “day of atonement”, and it comes eight days after Rush Ha’Shana (Jewish New Year). It is a sacred time to forgive and to be forgiven. On the first day, observant Jews fast from food and water for 25 hours and do not work. They spend most of their time attending special services in their synagogue.
When the day of fasting is over, they have a delicious break-fast dinner with family and friends. Yom Kippur menus call for lighter fare, since everyone has not eaten or had water for a whole day. Dairy-based foods are traditional favorites. Try our scrumptious Yom Kippur menu this year.
