Yom Kippur in Croatia

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 legal holiday for Jews only. It is not a public holiday for the general population, so schools and most businesses are open.

Prayer time is part of the Yom Kippur traditions.
