The Day of Atonement is observed by fasting, meditation on God's word, and prayer from sundown to sundown. Jews all over the world are reaffirming our faith in God and asking forgiveness for our transgressions. Those of us that are believers know that Yeshua (Jesus) was the final atonement for our sins.
For the Eve of Yom Kippur, a simple meal, low in spices, is served to help make the "fast" easier the next day.

- Chicken Soup with Matzo Balls

YOM KIPPUR (Break the fast meal)
The meal for breaking the fast is a family choice. Some people prefer to have juice to break the fast and then traditional Shabbat dinner, or for others, a dairy meal is traditional. Many of todays secular Jews break the fast by going to a Chinese restaurant (we choose the chinese restaurant - our tradition for many years).
