Yom Kippur

Today is Yom Kippur, may we all have an easy fast! There is a good post over at Roland’s Ramblings that links to a really good blog entry by Nina Amir!

Yom Kippur falls each year on the 10th day of the Jewish month of Tishrei, which is 9 days after the first day of Rosh Hashanah. In terms of the Gregorian calendar, the earliest date on which Yom Kippur can fall is September 14, as happened in 1899 and will happen again in 2013. The latest Yom Kippur can occur relative to the Gregorian dates is on October 14, as happened in 1967 and will happen again in 2043. After 2089, the differences between the Hebrew calendar and the Gregorian calendar will result in Yom Kippur falling no earlier than September 15.

    Thanks for the mention, Judy! Roland is a loyal reader and so kind to mention me so often. You might be interested in the post I published Erev Yom Kippur. It was based on a drash I was giving on Jonah, which is always read during Mincha on Yom Kippur. L’shanah tovah.
