Yom Kippur is the Jewish Day of Atonement and the most solemn of the Jewish Holy Days. Before Yom Kippur, Jews perform the Kaparot atonement service. In the late afternoon they eat the pre-fast meal, followed by blessing their children, light a memorial candle as well as the holiday candles and go the synagogue for the Kol Nidrei service. In the course of Yom Kippur, five prayer services are held. People ask for forgiveness of their sins and forgive others of theirs. Jews refrain from all eating and drinking on this day.
