The Day of Atonement, or Yom Kippur, is the most solemn holy day of all the Jewish feasts and festivals. It is a day of repentance and begins at sunset on Friday, September 29th and ends at sundown on Saturday, September 30th. Many ask if this Fall Feast is still significant today. Let’s see what God’s Word says…
The Lord instructs the people of God to keep this as a statute forever—
“‘This shall be a statute forever for you: In the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, you shall afflict your souls, and do no work at all, whether a native of your own country or a stranger who dwells among you. For on that day the priest shall make atonement for you, to cleanse you, that you may be clean from all your sins before the Lord. It is a sabbath of solemn rest for you, and you shall afflict your souls. It is a statute forever. And the priest, who is anointed and consecrated to minister as priest in his father’s place, shall make atonement, and put on the linen clothes, the holy garments; then he shall make atonement for the Holy Sanctuary, and he shall make atonement for the tabernacle of meeting and for the altar, and he shall make atonement for the priests and for all the people of the assembly. This shall be an everlasting statute for you, to make atonement for the children of Israel, for all their sins, once a year.’ And he did as the Lord commanded Moses.”—Leviticus 16:29-34
Even though this is a somber time, we as Believers know that this symbolizes a time of repentance and remembrance of the atoning sacrifice of Yeshua. We can be filled with joy as we come into more revelation of who we are in Christ and understand that we serve a merciful God.

Traditionally, on the day before Yom Kippur, it is common for people to undergo immersion. It allows the participant to become “ritually pure” in preparation for what is, for the Jewish people, the holiest day of the year. It symbolizes one’s intent to become a new person.
