SoCal Jews mark Yom Kippur with fasting, prayer and online services

Riverside, CA (KABC)-Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish calendar, ended on Thursday sunset.

Atonement Day is characterized by fasting, prayer, and remorse for forgiveness for violations over the past year.

Due to the pandemic this year, most synagogues around Southern California have hosted their services online.

Dr. Alan Kwasman and his wife, Diane on the Riverside, look back on the past year. They wanted to join the service directly, but instead looked through the zoom. They understand that social distance helps to stick to the Jewish Mitzvah, which saves lives.

“This is the day we forgive us for the violations of the past year and hope God will mark us with a new and better year,” said Dr. Kwasman.
