Have An Easy Fast On This Yom Kippur

The Holiest Day in the Jewish calendar, Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement,  falls on this Sabbath [Friday at sundown-Saturday].

The evening service [on this Friday] of Yom Kippur is often referred to as the Kol Nidre service.  The Kol Nidre is a declaration of "all vows" that is recited [sung] by the cantor, before the Yom Kippur service begins. 

The Kol Nidre [tenor Jan Peerce]:

On this solemn day of prayer, I wish blessings to all and may you have an easy fast.
