Kom Kippur Greeting: What to Say to a Jewish Person on Kom Kippur

No Gravatar

I’ve been asked a number of times what the proper greeting is on Yom Kippur ~ aka The Day of Atonement.  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. 

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!)

Wishing You & Yours “An Easy Fast!”

Shalom and G’Mar Chasima Tova ~ May we be here next year to do it all over again,
