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.
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!
