Jewish community observes solemn day of Yom Kippur with service and fasting


around the world — as they observe Yom Kippur ..or the “day of atonement”. This is the holiest day of the entire year in Judaism. People make amends for their behavior over the last twelve months, and look for ways to improve in the future. Congregations, such as Rodef Sholom on Youngstown’s North Side will gather this evening at sundown, and will fast for twenty-four hours as part of the observance. RABBI FRANKLIN MULLER: ITS ACTUALLY A TEN DAY PERIOD..BEGINNING WITH ROSH HASHANAH..WHICH IS THE JEWISH NEW YEAR..AND ITS A WHOLE TIME OF INTRASPECTION AND SOUL-SEARCHING AS TO HOW WE CAN BE BETTER IN THE COMING YEAR..SO ITS REALLY A TEN DAY PERIOD CULMINATING WITH YOM KIPPUR. As part of this evening’s service..Rabbi Muller will focus on gun violence and anti-semitism in his sermon.
