Yom Kippur Observations in Cobb
Temple Kol Emeth, Congregation Etz Chaim and Chabad of Cobb all will have services starting today.
According to the Jewish calendar, a holiday begins at sunset on the previous night. Today, observing Jews will celebrate Yom Kippur at sunset.
Yom Kippur falls annually on the 10th day of Tishrei, a Jewish month, which is nine days after the first day of Rosh Hashanah.
To observe Yom Kippur, one should eat and drink festively the day before—once early in the day and once later, before Kol Nidrei synagogue services. Then, for almost 25 hours, the day is spent in the synagogue without eating, drinking and other restrictions.
After the fast, another festive feast, or a yom tov, is customary.
To celebrate the High Holy Days and holiday period before Kol Nidrei and after the Yom Kippur fast, many Jewish specialties are made. But there are a few staples that usually make their way onto the table. Try a honey cake, noodle kugel or brisket.
