Yom Kippur Schedule

Sep 14th, 2010 by nzakon | 0

We are gearing up for an AWESOME Yom Kippur at DATA of Plano!
 We would find it most helpful if we had feedback as to what worked and what didn’t work for you or your family on Rosh Hashana so that we can further provide for all. Please email me at with your feedback.
We will be sending an email later this week with location details for the 2 services as well as childcare. (might be the same as Rosh Hashana or…)

If a woman is lighting candles Ereve Yom Kippur at home and making a stipulation that she is not yet accepting Yom Kippur upon herself, she should
not say the Shehecheyanu Bracha-Blessing at candlelighting. Rather, she should say
it when it is said in shul during the service. One also has to make sure that the candle will still be burning when you
return home.
Prohibitions / Customs for Yom Kippur
Aside from
Melachos- creative activity which is forbidden on Shabbos—
Yom Kippur has an additional five prohibitions:
1. Eating and drinking
2. Wearing leather shoes
3. Anointing with oils
4. Washing (Morning and when necessary: one may wash up to knuckles. If one has become dirty,
one may wash off dirt.)
5. Marital relations
There are also several customs for Yom Kippur:
1. It is a mitzvah to eat the day before Yom Kippur.
2. Kapparos- a chicken or money are used to say these words asking for forgiveness, Machzor page 2.
3. After the Seudas Hamafsekes, the meal before the fast, there is a custom to bless one’s children. This blessing can be found in the ArtScroll Yom Kippur Machzor on page 32.
4. Ner Nishma-
There is a custom to light a candle which will burn for all of Yom Kippur (one per couple).
This is in addition to lighting a Yarzheit candle.
5. Tefilas Zakkah-
Before Kol Nidre, many have the custom of saying this highly emotional prayer asking for forgiveness and forgiving those who have wronged you.
Sunday, September 19th Morning Services 8:00 A.M.

We look forward to greeting y’all at services on Yom Kippur!
