Jews around the world will conclude their observation of the High Holy Days with Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement). This day offers Jews the final opportunity of the year to repent of their sins. As Yom Kippur is a fast day, Jews have a special meal before the observance that helps remind them of the true meaning of this holy day. Before the fast begins at sunset, Jews traditionally eat kreplach, meat-filled dumplings.
