Yom Kippur, also known as Day of Atonement, is the holiest day of the year for the Jewish people. Its central themes are atonement and repentance. Jewish people traditionally observe this holy day with a 25-hour period of fasting and intensive prayer, often spending most of the day in synagogue services. Yom Kippur completes the annual period known in Judaism as the High Holy Days ("Days of Awe").
Translation: I will exalt You, my G-d the King, and I will bless Your Name forever and ever. Every day I will bless You, and I will laud Your Name forever and ever. Hashem is great and exceedingly lauded, and His greatness is beyond investigation. Each generation will praise Your deeds to the next and of Your mightly deeds they will tell; The splendrous glory of Your power and Your wonderous deeds I shall discuss. And of Your awesome they will speak, and your greatness I shall relate. A recollection of Your abundant goodness they will utter and of Your rughteousness they will sing exultantly. Gracious and merciful is Hashem, slow to anger, and great in bestowing kindness. Hashem is good to all; His mercies are on all His works. All Your works shall thank You, Hashem, and Your devout ones will bless You. Of the glory of Your kingdom they will speak, and of Your power they will tell. To inform human being of His mighty deeds, and the glorious splendor of His kingdom. Your kingdom is a kingdom spanning all eternities, and Your dominition is throughout every generation. Hashem supports all the fallen ones and straightens all the bent. The eyes of all look to You with hope and You give them their food in it's proper time; You open Your hand, and satisfy the desire of every living thing. Righteous is Hashem in all His ways and magnaninous in all His deeds. Hashem is close to all who call upon Him - to all who call upon Him sincerely. The will of those who fear Him He will do; and their cry He will hear, and save them. Hashem protects all who love Him; but all the wicked He will destroy. May my mouth declare the praise of Hashem and may all flesh bless His Holy Name forever and ever. We will bless G-d from this time and forever, Halleluy-ah!
Just to bless you.
