The Best Sites For Learning About Yom Kippur

| 0 comments

Jews around the world on Friday marked Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish calendar. As the BBC describes it:

* It means Day of Atonement
* It’s a day to reflect on the past year and ask God’s forgiveness for any sins
* Jewish people fast for 25 hours

Here are my choices for The Best Sites For Learning About Yom Kippur:

BBC Schools has a good page describing Yom Kippur.

Yom Kippur Around The World is a Wall Street Journal slideshow.

In pictures: Israel marks Yom Kippur is a BBC slideshow.

How Yom Kippur Works is from How Stuff Works.

Feedback and suggestions are welcome.
