Yom Kippur Gifts

Yom Kippur is one of the most significant Jewish festivals and is considered as one of the most solemn and holiest days of the year.  The theme of this festival is repentance, atonement and resolution. On the day of Yom Kippur, the Jews are expected to fast and indulge in introspection, self-correction and pray to the almighty for forgiving the sins committed by them.

Apart from being a day of reconciliation, this day also calls for exchanging gifts with your family and loved ones.
