Yom Kippur in Argentina

Yom Kippur, also known as the Day of Atonement, marks the end of the Yamim Noraim (Days of Awe) and falls on the 10th day of Tishrei (Tishri), the seventh month in the Jewish calendar. Many Jewish communities engage in intense prayer and fasting.

Is Yom Kippur a Public Holiday?

This is a non-working holiday only for people who follow the Jewish faith. Public organizations, schools, and most businesses are open, though some private enterprises may have reduced hours.

Prayer time is part of the Yom Kippur traditions.
