Yom Kippur

1 Comment

Getting started on activities for this feast day.. check back I’ll add stuff daily ๐Ÿ™‚

Yom Kippur is celebrated, according to Scripture, on the tenth day of the Hebrew month, Tishri – ten days after Yom Teruah. It is holiest of Jewish holidays, as it is the Day of Atonement, or the Day of Covering.

There was a special place in the temple, called the Holy of Holies. It was separated from the rest of the temple by a veil. One this day, and this day only, could the High Priest enter into the Holy of Holies and offer the sacrifices commanded by God as an atonement for the sins of the people. He also cast a lot to select a scapegoat that would bear the sins of the people and be sent into the wilderness. God’s instruction of the sacrifice and the scapegoat can be found in Leviticus 16. Animal sacrifices are no longer practiced. The non-Messianic Jews no longer practice since the destruction of the temple in 70 A.D. The Messianic Jews no longer practice, because they accept the final and complete sacrifice of Christ Jesus.

It is a Jewish practice to fast for the 25 hours of Yom Kippur. Most of the day is spent in services at the synagogue. After the final service, the shofar is blown, ending the holiday. Families and friends will then meet for a meal, breaking the fast.
