Yom Kippur (in 60 minutes or less)

Beginning Rosh Chodesh Elul, our focus turns to repentance.Every morning, at the conclusion of the Shacharit service, we recite “L’Dovid Hashem Ori,” [Psalm 27] which contains allusions to this special time of year and the process of repentance. To awaken us from our slumber, the Shofar is sounded, as well. Beginning on Motzai Shabbat prior to Rosh Hashanah, we commence the daily recital of Selichos in the pre-dawn period, continuing throughout  the Ten Days of Repentance, and concluding on Yom HaKippurim. In all, this period of intense penitence lasts a total of forty days.
