The Day of Atonement is a sacred and solemn occasion, on which synagogue attendance is particularly important. On Yom Kippur G-d makes the final decision on who will live, die, prosper and fail during the next year, and seals his judgement in the ‘Book of Life’.

The festival commences at sunset with a recitation of the Kol Nidrei prayer when we ask for previous vows to be annulled which leads us into a day of fasting. Worship includes the confession of sins and asking for forgiveness.
