Day of atonement 2016
As Jewish communities in the United States, Israel, and around the world observe Yom Kippur, I extend my best wishes for a simple and meaningful fast. The Day of Atonement serves as a humble reminder to reflect on our failings, as well as a testament to our ability to improve and develop, to live a meaningful life, and to make a difference in the lives of others. We can contribute to a better future for ourselves and our world through our prayers, deeds, and character. G’mar Chatimah Tovah on behalf of Michelle and our family.
12- kenny shelton- “the day of atonement” | 3abn 2016
Last week, the Jewish new year (Rosh Hashanah) began, along with the ten Days of Awe, which culminate in Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. During these ten days, Jews are encouraged to reflect on their lives, review their previous year’s behavior, and repent. It is said that this is the time when God chooses who will be inscribed in the Book of Life, who will live and who will die, who will have a good year and who will not. On Rosh Hashanah, the Book of Life is written, but our introspection and acts during the Days of Awe will influence God’s decree before it is finalized on Yom Kippur. Our destiny can be modified by prayer, good deeds, and “teshuvah,” (which is generally translated as repentance, or turning away from sin toward God).
As a teenager, I always felt like “turning away” from Yom Kippur, which I found to be a dreadful and aversive holiday. It wasn’t so much the 24-hour quick as it was the scratchy woolen suit I had to wear to services that was the most off-putting element. No, what was oppressive to me was what seemed like an endless day of contemplation, one that invited me to wallow in guilt about my flaws and inadequacies. There is one prayer in which each person beats his or her breasts while confessing to a long list of sins committed over the previous year. I hated Yom Kippur because I saw it as an opportunity to concentrate mainly, if not entirely, on my flaws.
Day of atonement – september 11, 2016
Between 1988 and 2011, a systematic review of all deliveries on the Day of Atonement and the corresponding day a week earlier was conducted. Preterm labor was described as the delivery of a baby before the 37th week of pregnancy. The ethnicity provided information on fasting status (as only Jewish parturients fast during the Day of Atonement). To account for confounders, a multivariable logistic regression model was used.
During the study period, 744 deliveries occurred, with 52.1 percent (n = 388) of Jewish patients (fasting group) and 47.9% (n = 357) of non-Jewish patients. Preterm births accounted for 6.3 percent (n = 47) of the total. On the Day of Atonement, Jewish parturients had a slightly higher chance of preterm delivery (adjusted OR = 2.0; 95 percent CI, 1.03-3.83; p = 0.041). Jewish ethnicity was not found to be a risk factor for preterm delivery on the next day, a week before the Day of Atonement (OR = 0.92; 95 percent CI, 0.50-1.69; p = 0.789). Previous preterm birth, intrauterine growth restraint, and placental abruption were all factors in the model.
Leviticus 16. the day of atonement
Yom Kippur (/jm kpr, jm kpr, jom-/; Hebrew:, IPA: [jom kipu], or Hebrew:, romanized: Yom HaKippurim), also known as the Day of Atonement, is the holiest day of the year in Judaism. Atonement and repentance are central themes. This holy day is usually marked by a day-long fast and intense prayer, with Jews frequently spending the majority of the day in synagogue services.
In Hebrew, Yom () is translated as ‘day,’ and Kippur () is translated as ‘atonement.’
[two] Yom Kippur is commonly translated as Day of Atonement in English, but this translation is not precise. The biblical verse “…but on the tenth day of the seventh month it is the day of kippurim unto you…” (Leviticus 23:27) inspired the name Yom Kippur. The word ‘kippurim’ literally means ‘cleansing.’ Yom Kippur is a Jewish holiday dedicated to atoning for wrongdoings and being cleansed and purified as a result of them.  Yom Kippur is also regarded as the “Sabbath of Sabbaths” because it falls on the “tenth day of [the] seventh month” (Tishrei).  According to the Hebrew calendar, Rosh Hashanah (also known as Yom Teruah in the Torah) is the first day of the month. Yom Kippur marks the end of the annual cycle known as the High Holy Days, or Yamim Nora’im (“Days of Awe”) in Judaism, which began with Rosh Hashanah. (5) The ten days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur lead to Moses’ 40-day stay on Mount Sinai receiving the second set of tablets. [number six]
