Yom Kippur is the most critical, high holy day in the Jewish year. The nation stops. There is a not a car on the streets. Families walk on the road or ride bikes. Many go to the synagogues to humble themselves with fasting, confess their sins, and resolve to be better people. They wear white clothing. Many wear white kippahs (skull caps).
You can read about Yom Kippur in Leviticus 16 and see its counterpart in Hebrews 9. It is the one and only day when the High Priest would go through sacrifices to atone for his sins and the sins of the people and take the blood into the Most Holy place.
There is a certain amount of holding the breath during The Day of Atonement because the opened ended question is, “Will the sacrifices be acceptable and will God have mercy on the nation for another year?” Many Christians are joining the fasting for Israel even as they remember the Perfect, Once-Forever-Sacrifice that was made by Yeshua.
May Israel know their Yeshua (Savior) today! Bikers taking advantage of the empty streets
