On the 10th day of the Jewish month of Tishri comes Yom Kippur, meaning the 'Day of Atonement'. It's the holiest day of the year.

To mark the 'Sabbath of Sabbaths', Jews fast for 25 hours and pray devoutly for most of the day, with five different sessions – Maariv, Shacharit, Musaf, Minchah and Neilah. [Link added.]

When is Yom Kippur?

Yom Kippur 2016 is a one day celebration. The holy event begins in the evening of Tuesday, October 11 and ends in the evening of Wednesday, October 12.

"You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
Girl, we couldn't get much higher"
