Yom Kippur begins on the evening of Sept. 25 and lasts through the evening of Sept. 26. Bayside Patch has compiled a list of local services and special events taking place this week to honor the holiday.
The holiday is also known as the Day of Atonement and serves as the holiest day of the year for Jews. It is traditionally observed with a 25-hour period of fasting and intensive prayer. Yom Kippur concludes the period known as the High Holy Days.
