Yom Kippur

In Kitah Bet we have learned all about Yom Kippur and the preparations for this holiest day of the year.

We focused on the following concepts:


Aseret Yemei Teshuva:

There are 10 days from Rosh Hashana to Yom Kippur. During these days we concentrate on Teshuva, Tefilla and Tzedaka.


  • Teshuva: we ask forgiveness from family and friends. Keyword: Slicha.
  • Tefilla: We ask for a good year for everyone. In class we also sang Avinu Malkeinu during these special days.
  • Tzedaka is more than putting money in the tzedaka box.  We do good deeds everywhere.


Yom Kippur:

The mitzvah in the Torah for Yom Kippur is to fast.                      

Adults and children over bar or bat mitzvah age fast on Yom Kippur.

Younger children may fast a little (with their parent’s permission).


We use a machzor, we wear non-leather shoes and we wear white clothes.


May we all be sealed for a Shana Tova Umetuka -a good and sweet year!
