Overboard Yom Kippur MP3

Yom Kippur is the Jewish holiday of repentance, atonement, and forgiveness. Listen to this song about how the Day of Atonement relates to the story of Jonah (and watch our video too!). Lots of us think about Yom Kippur like an annual big dark cloud of guilt, sin and hours in synagogue. But ahoy there matey! It doesn’t have to be that way. Throw your old ideas overboard. Yom Kippur is an amazing opportunity to change, grow and connect. Just ask Jonah, the hero of the Yom Kippur afternoon haftarah.
