Yom Kippur Traditions

After the fast, celebrate with these ideas

Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish year, is also known as The Day of Atonement. From sundown to sundown, those in observance fast and atone for their sins of the past. 

Once the sun sets, families come together to break the fast by eating large meal of breakfast-like foods.
To make sure no work is done during the day, prepare the break fast platters and dishes the day before. 

While every family has their own traditional break fast dishes, some common options include: 


Bagels and Lox




Challah French Toast

Plan ahead, because when sundown arrives, family and guests will surely be famished and ready to dive into a bountiful break fast meal.
