** If a woman is lighting Shabbos- Yomtov candles at home and making a stipulation that she is not accepting Yom Kippur upon herself, she should not say the Shehecheyanu Bracha at candlelighting. Rather, she should say it when it is said in shul. 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:

Eating and drinking
Wearing leather shoes
Anointing with oils
Washing (Morning and when necessary: one may wash up to knuckles. If one has become dirty, one may wash off dirt.)
Marital relations

There are also several customs for Yom Kippur:

It is a mitzvah to eat the day before Yom Kippur.
Kapparos- a chicken or money are used to say these words asking for forgiveness, Machzor page 2.
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.
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.
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.
