Have an Easy Fast (31 Days of Israel)

…In the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, you shall afflict your souls, and you shall not do any work … For on that day he shall provide atonement for you to cleanse you from all your sins before the L-RD. -Leviticus 16:29-30

Yom Kippur is the Jewish day of atonement – as described in Leviticus. It consists of a complete 25 hour fast with no work being done.  It is considered to be the holiest day of the year.

Jewish believers greet one another saying – Have an Easy Fast

Muslims mark Eid al-Adha by giving meat to the poor in remembrance of a story in the Quran stating that Abraham was to sacrifice Ishmael and Ishmael agreed to it before they were stopped by Allah.

Muslims greet one another saying – Eid Mubarak (“Have a blessed Eid”)

Yom Kippur 5775 (2014) – Today and tomorrow, for the first time in 33 years, the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur and the Muslim holdiy of Eid al-Adha coincide so let’s especially pray for peace for Israel today.
