G'mar chatimah tovah

Starting at Sundown on Tuesday, Jewish people around the world will begin to observe Yom Kippur - the holiest day of the year in their religion. “For 25 hours — until sundown on Wednesday, Oct. 9 — they will refrain from any food and drink, including water. They will spend the majority of the day in synagogue, praying to God and repenting for their sins.”

“Gmar hatimah tovah,” or “Gmar tov,” which roughly translates to “a good seal.” Those observing the holiday believe that the book of life, which determines an individual’s fate for the coming year, opens on Rosh Hashanah, and is sealed at the end of Yom Kippur following the period of repentance.
