Yom Kippur - Day of Atonement
Yom Kippur, which means 'Day of Atonement,' is considered the most important holiday in the Jewish faith. For 2019, this holiest day of the Jewish year begins in the evening of Tuesday 8th October and ends in the evening of Wednesday 9th October. During this period, our Jewish community of staff and students abstain from food and drinks and spend the time praying. The end of the fast is often marked with a 'break-fast' meal which is a time for family and friends to reconnect after an often intense day of prayer and fasting.
We wish all our Jewish staff and students at LJMU a good and fulfilling celebration.
