Yom Kippur 2021 greetings, messages and traditions

The greeting used on Yom Kippur is “G’mar chatima tova” – in English this means, “May you be sealed in the book of life.”

Don’t forget, in Hebrew the ‘ch’ sound is not pronounced like in ‘choose’, but more of a throaty sound, emphasising the ‘H’.

This is because according to the Jewish faith, your fate is decided on Rosh Hashanah and confirmed on Yom Kippur.

Another simple Yom Kippur message to send your Jewish friends is “have an easy fast” or “have a meaningful fast.”
