Yom Kippur for the year 2022 is celebrated/ observed on sundown of Tuesday, October 4th ending at sundown on Wednesday, October 5.

Yom Kippur is on the tenth day of the month of Tishri in the Jewish calendar. Known as the Day of Atonement, the Jewish holiday is spent in prayer and fasting among many people of the Jewish faith. The seven day festival of Sukkot commemorating the wandering in the desert for 40 years, begins on the fifth day after Yom Kippur. Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are the two important days of atonement for most practicing Jews.

Why do Jewish holidays start at nighttime?

According to the Torah, the story of creation in Genesis says “And it was evening, and it was morning day one”, “And it was evening, and it was morning; the second day”, thus night comes before day. So for the Jewish calendar all days begin at nightfall and end the next day at nightfall including holidays.
