What is the Day of Atonement?

The Day of Atonement, known as Yom Kippur in Hebrew, is the most solemn assembly of the year, characterized by fasting and prayer. It begins at sunset on the tenth day of the seventh month of the Biblical calendar. This day, also called the Day of Judgment and the Sabbath of Sabbaths, is a fast day dedicated to seeking cleansing for personal and national sins through confession and repentance.

For Christians, Yom Kippur is a day of both solemnity and rejoicing. It reflects on Jesus Christ, who serves as the ultimate High Priest and sacrificial Lamb. His sacrifice provides eternal forgiveness, transcending the annual rituals of the Day of Atonement.
