Last week we learnt about Jews asking for forgiveness for things they have done and forgiving people who have done wrong to them.


The 10 days of repentance ends with Yom Kippur. This is the holiest day of the year. Yom Kippur is a time of reflection, thinking about who and what is most important to you as well as a time to say sorry and plan for the next year.


Can you think about who and what is most important to you?

Maybe it is your family or friends.

Do you think your warm house and having nice food on your table is important?

Do you think going to school is important?


Jewish people wear white during Yom Kippur and those that are over 13 years old will fast for 25 hours. This means that they do not eat for all that time! They also spend most of the day praying.


The shofar horn is blown again to mark the end of Yom Kippur.
