This Month: 5 things you might not know about Yom Kippur

 

 

 

This is the holiest Jewish Holiday of the year, marking the end of the New Year celebration and a Day of Atonement for sins.

 

 

 

 

The term “scapegoat” comes from the biblical tradition of a rabbis placing everyone’s sins into a goat and tossing it off a cliff.

 

 

 

 

In 1958, Virginia Rabbi Emmet A. Frank took a strong stand in his Yom Kippur sermon against segregation, igniting a wave of local anti-Semitism.

 

 

 

 

Jews fast for 24 hours; It’s traditional to donate at least the amount one would spend on family meals for that day to the needy.

 

 

 

 

It’s the only Jewish holiday that starts before Sundown.
