For Jews around the world tonight begins the 25-hour observance of Yom Kippur, the holiest day on the Jewish calendar. Contrary to popular belief this holiday -- though we fast and pray in the synagogue this evening and all day tomorrow -- isn't really a solemn day. Instead, Orthodox, Conservative, Reform and Reconstructionist Rabbis alike encourage congregants to view this day as a joyful one because we are thinking positively about being inscribed in the Book of Life for the coming year.
Symbols of the High Holidays Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are beautifully depicted in this one-of-a-kind intricately embroidered art quality holiday challah cover from Jerusalem.
