Yom Kippur, also known as the “Day of Atonement,” is one of the most significant holidays for people of the Jewish faith. The dates of Yom Kippur vary year by year, but its usually observed between the end of September and the beginning of October, shortly after the celebration of Rosh Hashanah.
Yom Kippur 2019 begins on the evening of Tuesday, October 8, and lasts through sundown on Wednesday, October 9.
The Yom Kippur fast is observed for approximately 25 hours; this year, according to Independent, it begins at 6:08 pm on October 8 and ends at 7:07 pm on October 9. The start and end times are based on the time zone in which you live, which means that Jewish people around the world will be starting and ending Yom Kippur at different times.
