What is Yom Kippur?

(The Jewish New Year)

On the Day of Atonement, Israel is called to a new repentance and a humbling of themselves before God in preparation for the Great Feast of Tabernacles. Israel had to have a new Passover every year, and a new Day of Atonement every year---because their sacrifices which they offered year by year served only to call sins to remembrance, and to revive their sin-conscience.
Lev. 23: 27-32: "On the tenth day of the seventh month, there shall be a day of atonement; it shall be a holy convocation unto you; and you shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord."

For Israel, this Day of Holy convocation was a day of fasting. This was a day of the affliction of the soul (intellect, emotions, will). This was a time of mourning, humiliation, repentance, purification, cleansing and intercession. Israel as a nation afflicted her soul. Only the High Priest entered the Most Holy Place with the blood. (Lev.23:31) ". . . it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings."
(Source: Pastor Carolyn Sissom, EastGate Ministries, Katy, Texas. -- excerpt. No link provided)

The teachings below, and the songs of Yom Kippur, are offered so that we, too, may enter into this time of deep repentance with the children of the seed of Jacob. May we all take this day -- beginning at sundown tonight -- and join in prayers of repentance with our Jewish brothers and sisters on this very holy day in Israel. Amen.
"Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the LORD your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity."(Joel 2:13)
Understanding Yom Kippur

Understanding Yom Kippur:

A teaching by Eric Teitelman,
House of David Ministries
Haymarket, VA

Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement is considered to be the holiest day of the year for the Jewish people. It is a solemn day to afflict our souls, but it is also a joyful day in knowing that God will forgive our sins. It commemorates the day when God forgave the Jewish people for the sin of the Golden Calf.

On this day-and only this day-the high priest of Israel would enter the holy of holies with the blood of an unblemished lamb and would make atonement for the whole nation. The priest would spend the prior week in seclusion, and the night before the great day would stay up all night in prayer and study of Torah. It is interesting to see how Yeshua also stayed awake in prayer the night before He was crucified.
It is customary for some Jewish men to receive symbolic lashes as a sign of humility and repentance. We of course know that Yeshua-Who was most humble-was whipped by the Roman soldiers and received the lashed that we deserved.

The Jewish people partake of a final meal before the holy day. Yeshua also partook of a final mean-A Passover-with His disciples before He was led away to die on the cross.

The rabbis teach that Yom Kippur erases all the sins we have committed against God. We know and believe that Yeshua, the Lamb of God is the One who took away all our sins forever.
. . . [Yom Kippur] continually reminds us to return to Him when we have drifted away so that we might receive a fresh anointing and cleansing of the Holy Spirit: "Be renewed in the spirit of your mind."(Ephesians 4:23)

"Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day." (2 Corinthians 4:16).

Not that we lose our salvation, but sometimes our relationship can grow cold or mundane. Yom Kippur is therefore a perfect time of renewal, and it fits God's created purpose in our lives.

A Christian Prayer of Repentance

A Christian Prayer of Repentance

I am asking, as a Christian, for forgiveness from the Jewish community.

Please forgive me for the arrogant disregarding of your eternal, God ordained identity.

Please forgive me for disregarding your position as the keeper and protector of the Oracles of God.

Please forgive me for not recognizing Israel as your God given inheritance.

Please forgive me for not recognizing Jerusalem as the City of the Great King - the place where God has chosen to place His Great Name.

Please forgive me for accepting and agreeing with any Christian doctrine that led to the murder and unmerciful persecution of 10's of millions of Jewish people and then, after all this, believing these same Jews are burning in hell.
God, please have mercy on me and all of us.

During this season of Yom Kippur, I am inviting Christians to join me in repenting to the Jewish people.

Guide to Yom Kippur

A Step-by-Step Yom Kippur Guide

On Yom Kippur, the day when we are likened to angels, many have a custom to wear white clothing while praying. Married Ashkenazic men traditionally wear a simple, long white garment called a kittel. The kittel is also the traditional Jewish shroud; wearing it reminds us of our mortality and urges us to repent.
Before sunset, women and girls light holiday candles, and everyone changes into non-leather shoes and holiday finery.

A beautiful song for Yom Kippur:

Nigun "Ki Hinei Kachomer" with a Folksy Twist

The words of the nigun Ki Hinei Kachomer are from the Yom Kippur evening prayers: "As metal in the hands of the craftsman, so too we are in Your hands." Yosef Peysin and Mordy Kurtz of Rogers Park Band perform this traditional Chassidic tune with a fresh modern sound.
