Join Jews all around the world as we pray on Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year. This day is known for its solemnity and introspection, and is a time to ask for forgiveness and make amends.
One key reason to pray on Yom Kippur is that it’s a time when we can connect with God in a more personal way. We can reflect on our past year and ask for guidance for the coming year. We can also thank God for all He has done for us this year, and ask Him to help us stay true to His principles.
Prayer is an essential part of Judaism, and Yom Kippur is a special day to remember all that we have been through – together with God – during the other 364 days of the year.

The Five Book of Tehillim
This year, the holiest day of the Jewish year, Yom Kippur, falls on October 9th. There are many things that we can do to prepare for this solemn day. One of those preparations is lighting a candle in remembrance of all the people who have passed away this year.
There is a specific prayer that we recite when lighting a candle on Yom Kippur. The Five Book of Tehillim (also known as the Psalms of Solomon) is a book of prayers that were written by King Solomon in the 10th century BC. The book is named after its five main sections: Pleading, Praise, Thanksgiving, Lamentation, and Adoration.
The prayer that we recite when lighting a candle on Yom Kippur is from the Pleading section of the book. It’s called “Kli Yakar” (כלי יקר), which means “All Our Sorrows.”

How to light a Menorah
When it comes to candlelighting for Yom Kippur, there are a few things to keep in mind. The first is that the ceremony itself takes place from sundown to sundown on the 10th day of the month of Tishrei. So, if you’re planning to light your Menorah starting at sundown on September 22nd and continuing until sundown on September 29th, you’ll need to make sure each candle is lit at least an hour apart.
The second thing to keep in mind is that while it’s customary to light a Menorah during the eight days of Sukkot, it’s not mandatory. You could also choose to light a Menorah during Shabbat or Chanukah if you’d like.
Finally, when it comes to candles, the traditional way to light them is with either a match or a flame lighter. If you’re using a match, make sure to hold it carefully so as not to set your candles on fire; use a flame lighter instead if possible. And remember: when lighting your Menorah, be sure to say blessing over it before beginning your prayers.
