Jewish people across the country are gathering for one of their biggest holidays. Yom Kippur is considered one of the holiest days of the year in Judaism. It's the day of atonement; when Jews fast and repent to bring themselves closer to god. Rabbi Harley Karz-Wagman of Temple Israel in Wilmington is preparing for the event. “We hope that this next year will be one of that carries with it a great deal of more peace, comfort, and particular prosperity from the struggling that we are dealing with right now in our society.” Karz-Wagman said. The holiday starts at Wednesday night at sunset, and lasts until Thursday evening.
