Yom Kippur, or the Day of Atonement, is considered to be the number one holy day in the Jewish faith and it’s something that Orange County Jews look forward to every year. This special day will begin on September 25, 2012 and end on September 26th 2012 in the evening.
A Day Of Rich History
This Jewish holy day is a period of 25 hours that’s spent in prayer and fasting. Most Orange County Jews will spend Yom Kippur in local synagogues. This high, holy day has a rich history and according to tradition: God will inscribe an individual’s fate for the year to come, in what is called the Book of Life during Rosh Hashanah and then he will wait until the arrival of Yom Kippur to finalize the verdict.
Planning For Yom Kippur
Since Orange County Jews will be fasting during the 25-hour period of Yom Kippur, it’s important for all Jews within the Orange County area to be prepared to fast safely:
- Before the fast – Eat a healthy meal that will “stick to your bones” like oatmeal with grain cereal. This simple meal will keep anyone who intends to fast during Yom Kippur full of energy and it will help him or her to avoid getting hungry.
- Drink a lot of water – The most important thing to do during any fast is of course drink lots of water. Before Yom Kippur starts make sure that you have plenty of water ready to drink so you don’t get dehydrated.
- Get plenty of sleep – Anyone who is planning to fast during Yom Kippur should get plenty of sleep because, not getting enough sleep will break down their desire to maintain the fast and sleep will help them to maintain their will and energy.
