Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, at the end of the 10 Days of Awe, is devoted to prayer, repentance and fasting. The Sabbath of Sabbaths in the Jewish calendar, it is the most widely observed Jewish Holiday of the year. Observance includes refraining from work.

Join us to sing and pray our way into the Jewish New Year! All events will be in the Aula, with the exception of Tashlich, which will be held at Sunset Lake. Please find more information and register for all holiday meals on the website: vassarjewishlife.org/high-holidays-at-vassar
