Yom Kippur 2022: Quotes, Wishes, history, Messages, Greeting

It’s hard to believe that it has already been two years since Yom Kippur. The holiest day of the Jewish calendar, and the day when we come together to mourn the death of our ancestors, has come and gone. While we’re all busy taking care of our own individual businesses, thoughts of Yom Kippur always seem to drift to our loved ones and friends. In this post, we’ve collected some heartfelt messages and quotes from around the web in anticipation of this special day. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

What is Yom Kippur?

Yom Kippur is the holiest day of the Jewish year and this blog began in observance. Yom Kippur, also known as the Day of Atonement, is the holiest day of the Jewish calendar. It commemorates the time when God judged humanity harshly and required that we atone for our sins. On the time, we come together to mourn our ancestors and reflect on how much we have sinned in recent years. We observe a strict fast from sundown until nightfall and pray for forgiveness.

Wishes for a Happy and Safe Yom Kippur. May all of our actions on this day be motivated by love, and may we always strive to do better.

The origins of Yom Kippur are uncertain, but it is thought to have originated in the Babylonian exile. During the exile, when Jews were unable to practice their religion freely, there was a need for a day that focused exclusively on prayer and repentance. This eventually evolved into our modern holiday.

Origins of Yom Kippur

Yom Kippur’s origins are unknown. When the Temple was reconstructed after being destroyed by the Babylonians, it was not included in the list of holidays to be observed. After their return from captivity, Zecharia omits Yom Kippur from the list of fast days that Jews must observe, and Ezra speaks nothing about it in his instructions for preparation for Sukkot.

The scriptural references to the Day of Atonement (Numbers 29:7-11 and Leviticus 16:1-34; 23:26-32) were “inserted by priests during the Second Temple period to legitimate new procedures established to purify the Temple in advance of” Sukkot, according to Elon Gilad. He further claims that was influenced by Akitu, a Babylonian holiday commemorating the start of the new year that shares some characteristics with Yom Kippur.

The king only entered the sanctuary of the Babylonian temple on the fifth day of Akitu. Similarly, the Israelites’ high priest could only enter the Holy of Holies on the Day of Atonement (where the Ark of the Covenant was kept). The Babylonian ruler would inform his god that he had not sinned; the Jewish priest, on the other hand, would confess the Israelites’ crimes over the head of a live goat. After that, the animal would be released into the wild (Leviticus 16:21). The term “scapegoat” was coined to describe this type of ritual done by Jews and others.”

Although fasting is the most commonly connected with Yom Kippur, the Bible does not command Jews to abstain from eating or drinking. The phrase “ye shall suffer your spirits” is used, and it is taken to signify fasting because that is how it is translated elsewhere.

When Does Yom Kippur Take Place?

Yom Kippur is the last day of the Ten Days of Awe, which began with Rosh Hashanah. It begins on Tuesday, October 4, 2022, at sunset and ends on Wednesday, October 5, 2022, at sunset. We gather with family and friends before dusk to enjoy the last meal before Yom Kippur and the fast begins. Fasting is not obligatory for children under the age of 13, nor for people whose health prevents them from fasting, such as pregnant or breastfeeding mothers. If you aren’t fasting but a loved one is, you can still show your support and enjoy some quiet time for thought during this holiday.

The fasting period of Yom Kippur comes to a close with a large break-the-fast celebration. Family and friends gather over the food they’ve prepared ahead of time. Newcomers and anyone who could be alone over the holidays are traditionally invited. There are several recipes to pick from at 18Doors.
