Say It With eCards offers a tasteful and elegantly designed collection of Yom Kippur eCards, but…

First a little history:

Yom Kippur – also known as the Day of Atonement – is the holiest day of the Jewish faith.

On Yom Kippur G_d seals our fate for the coming year.  It is said: “On Rosh Hashanah our fate is written in the Book of Life, and on Yom Kippur our fate is sealed!”

We spend Yom Kippur in prayer, asking G_d to forgive us for our misdeeds and give us a good year.

While Yom Kippur is considered a solemn occasion, it is a happy day because it is the day we receive G_d’s forgiveness and the forgiveness of others — Friendship and love is more powerful than the wrongs that were done. When we receive the forgiveness of G_d, it is a sign of His eternal and  unconditional love.

Yom Kippur Greetings
  ~ What Is The Traditional Yom Kippur Greeting?

Each year I am asked the same question:  “What is the greeting used on Yom Kippur?”

The two main greetings are:

Have an Easy Fast ~ Traditionally a Jewish Person fasts on Yom Kippur for a period of approximately 25 hours.  This is not an easy task for many, so “wishing them an easy fast” is not only respectful it is tradition!”

G’Mar Chasima Tova ~ “May you be written in the “Book of Life” for a good year!”

Traditionally… On Rosh Hashanah one’s fate is written in “The Book of Life” for the coming year ~ On Yom Kippur it is Sealed!  So it is a blessing to say:  “G’Mar Chasima Tova!”

NOTE:  G’Mar Chasima Tova is the greeting used during the time “between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur!”
