Tonight at sundown, Yom Kippur begins. The day of atonement for our Jewish friends. I never know how to acknowledge the holiday properly. I know it's not "Happy Yom Kippur! Hope you don't spend all day begging God for forgiveness!" That's sort of like saying, "Happy Good Friday!" A little help anyone?

happy new year or good yontif (sp?) are both appropriate.

"Have an easy fast" is pretty gracious.

I have the same problem, as a Catholic girl with lots of Jewish friends! I sometimes wish my friends a "Blessed Yom Kippur."
