High Holy Days set to culminate

Yom Kippur celebrated by Wood River Jewish Community

Express Staff Writer

The Wood River Jewish Community will celebrate the end of the "Days of Awe" in the Jewish calendar Monday evening at St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Sun Valley.

The Yom Kippur fast, which begins on Sunday evening, will end Monday at 6 p.m. with a "Breaking of the Fast" at the church.

"Yom Kippur is the holiest day of the year for Jews," said Dora Levin, who chairs the Ritual Committee for the Wood River Jewish Community. "It concludes a 10-day period of introspection that began last Friday on Rosh Ha Shana, which is the Jewish New Year."


A potluck dinner will mark the end of fasting and rest on Yom Kippur at 6 p.m. In order to honor Jewish tradition, dishes should not include pork or shellfish.
