“…on this day atonement will be made for you, to cleanse you. Then, before the Lord, you will be clean from all your sins. It is a day of sabbath rest, and you must deny yourselves; it is a lasting ordinance.” (Leviticus 16:30-31)

In this photo taken during Israel’s 1973 Yom Kippur War, an IDF soldier takes a rest from battle, laying his head on a tank tread. Shabbat shalom, friends.
