Yom Kippur is a day of reconciliation, when Jews observe to make amends with people and to draw closer to God through prayers and 25 hours of fasting and the longest synagogue service in the Jewish year. It begins on the evening before Yom Kippur day with a haunting song called Kol Nidre (All Vows). The words of this melody ask God to forgive any vows people have made to God and not kept. Yom Kippur was the only time during the year when the high priest would enter the Holy of Holies in the innermost chamber of the or Tabernacle to make atonement for the sins of all Israel.
