Yom Kippur Details and laws.

One should have a meal similar to a Shabbos meal before the fast begins.

On Yom Kippur we do not:

1. Eat or drink. This only applies to people over the age of bar or bas mitzva. If one is ill or thinks they can not fast for any other reason please consult Rabbi Zakon.

2. Bath or wash for pleasure. One should only wash their hands until their knuckles. Even then this should only be done after using the restroom or upon waking up. If there is dirt on you you can wash it off.

3. Wear leather shoes, sneakers, sandals or slippers. All other types of shoes, sandals or sneakers are permitted.

4. Smear oils upon ones self.

5. Marital relations.

Yom Kippur is like Shabbos in that one is not permitted to carry outside of an enclosed area. We are also not allowed to cook on Yom Kippur.

Blessing the Children It is customary to bless one’s children after the meal, immediately before the fast (see ArtScroll machzor, page 32). There is no required formula for this blessing, but it is customary to say: “The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying: This is how you shall bless the children of Israel, saying to them: ‘May the Lord bless you and watch over you. May the Lord cause His countenance to shine to you and favor you. May the Lord raise His countenance toward you and grant you peace.’They shall bestow My Name upon the children of Israel, and I will bless them.”

[For a son:] May G-d make you like Ephraim and Menashe.

[For a daughter:] May G-d make you like Sorah, Rivka, Rochel, and Leah.

Candlelighting We usher in this holy day with added light (see ArtScroll machzor, page 34). Just before sunset on the eve of Yom Kippur people who have experienced the loss of a parent light yahrtzeit candles; everyone lights a Ner Neshama (Soul Candle); and women light Yom Tov candles. The following blessings are then recited.

Baruch atta Ado-noy Elo-hai-nu Melech ha’olam asher kid-e-sha-nu b’mitz-vo-tav v’tzi-vanu li-had-lik ner shel Yom Ha-kee-purim. [Blessed are you, Lord our G-d, King of the universe, who has sanctified us with His commandments, and commanded us to kindle the light of the Day of Atonement.]

The Shehecheyanu blessing is then recited. The woman who recites the Shehecheyanu blessing while lighting the candles, omits this blessing from the conclusion of the Kol Nidrei prayer.

If a woman lights candles at home and then wats to drive or be driven to services she should stipulate that she is not accepting Yom Kippur with the candle lighting. She should also not say the Shehechiyunu blessing when she lights and should say it at services with everyone else.
