the Jewish day of
It is the holiest day of the Jewish year.
It occurs 10 days after Rosh Hashanah.
The days between
Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur
are called the Days of Awe.

As believers in Jesus,
we do not
the Jewish feast days.
Yet, I learn a lot from understanding
the Jewishness of the Bible.
Before we continue this page,
we share an interesting audio teaching
that you might like:
Yom Kippur is about repentance.
It is a day that highlights to the Jews
that they need to be
RIGHT with GOD.
God is our Creator.... And God is HOLY -
and we need to submit to him
in obedience and in repentance.
Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord.
saying Holy three times means -
The Highest Holy
We know that Jesus is the way to salvation.
Yet - We also need to be serious about staying in close communion with God and repent when we sin.
- See farther down for more on that. -
tells us that God wants us to pray
that the Jewish people
not only seek God the Father,
but that they recognize and accept
Jesus and his sacrifice for their sins.
Please join me in Prayer
We pray on this Yom Kippur -
the holiest day that you gave on your calendar.
We pray for the Jewish people
that as they deeply ponder this day
and as they go to their place of worship.
We pray that
they will yield to you
and you will open their eyes
to the truth of your son -
Jesus Christ - who is their Messiah.
We pray in
Holy name of Jesus,
Kadosh means Holy
For me, repentance takes my mind to the cross.
I remember an old hymn that said, “Jesus, keep me near the cross.”
God has shown me the wisdom
of staying near the cross.
I want to stay near the cross.
I want to keep a tender heart that easily asks for forgiveness from my Heavenly Father.
I want to be like David –
who was a man after God’s heart.
I cry out as David did,
“Create in me a clean heart, O God;
and renew a right spirit within me.”
We have two more songs...
Here is that Great Hymn
"Near the Cross"
LYRICS by Fanny Crosby
Jesus, keep me near the cross,
There a precious fountain
Free to all, a healing stream
Flows from Calvary’s mountain.
In the cross, in the cross,
Be my glory ever;
Till my raptured soul shall find
Rest beyond the river.
Near the cross, a trembling soul,
Love and mercy found me;
There the bright and morning star
Sheds its beams around me.
Near the cross! O Lamb of God,
Bring its scenes before me;
Help me walk from day to day,
With its shadows o’er me.
Near the cross I’ll watch and wait
Hoping, trusting ever,
Till I reach the golden strand,
Just beyond the river.
We worship you, Lord, for you are Holy.
