OPSEU wishes a happy Yom Kippur to all Jewish communities and members celebrating the holiest day of the year, also known as the Day of Atonement.
Following Rosh Hashanah – the Jewish New Year – Yom Kippur marks the end of the 10 days of repentance, which is a time to reflect on wrongdoings and pledge to do better as the New Year begins.
Tonight at sundown, Jewish communities will mark Yom Kippur by beginning a day-long period of fasting, praying and attending synagogue services.
So to all those observing Yom Kippur, may you have an easy and meaningful fast.
On behalf of all members of the OPSEU family: G’mar Chatimah Tovah.
