Yom Kippur: Then and Now

Yom Kippur: Then and Now

Which day in the Jewish calendar is the most special, holiest day that you could imagine?

Chances are that you answered, “Yom Kippur.” If you did, you are 100% correct!

But you may be surprised to discover that if you took a time-machine a couple of thousand years back, you probably wouldn’t recognize the day! These days we spend Yom Kippur in the synagogue, praying. In contrast, when the Mishkan and the Beis HaMikdash stood, all eyes were on the Kohen Gadol – he was the one chosen to represent the Jewish people. And the fate of the entire nation depended on how he served HaShem in a series of special Yom Kippur rituals.

No wonder that the description of the service of the Kohen Gadol on Yom Kippur is what we read from the Torah scroll on Yom Kippur morning.

And at the end of this Parsha, you’ll be surprised to learn what we read on Yom Kippur afternoon.

Join us for this Parsha where we will briefly describe what happened on this special day thousands of years ago.
