Yom Kippur is the Day of Atonement, the last of the Ten Days of Repentance begun on Rosh Hashanah.
This year, Yom Kippur begins at sundown on October 3, 2014. On Yom Kippur, Jewish adults and children older than 13 observe a day of fasting. They spend the day in prayer, make peace with their enemies, and settle their consciences.
Before sundown on the eve of Yom Kippur, traditional Jewish families prepare for the day of fast by eating a big dinner. It's a filling meal, meant to see one through the entire next day without food. After this meal, nothing is eaten until sundown the next day.
When the final sounding of the shofar (ram's horn) announces the end of the holiday, families leave the synagogue and return home to break their fast. Usually, they begin with a light snack. Later, a full meal is served, which may include chicken soup, roast poultry, fruit compote, salad, cookies, and fresh fruit.
