Yom kippur happens 10 days after Rosh HaShanah . It is celebrated because it brings the Days of Repentance to a close . It is celebrated by fasting for 25 hrs , jews spend the day in prayer asking for forgiveness and resolving to behave better in the future . K.Chapelside_6thGrader !

As usual we are scheduled to fly out the afternoon of the 8th, arriving in SF at 6pm on Kol Nidre eve. Let's discuss as I will have to scamble to make changes or to get into a temple in SF that night.
