SALT LAKE CITY -- Yom Kippur is a day when many people of the Jewish faith come together and visit their local synagogues.

The holiday, which will begin on the evening of Tuesday, Sept. 18 and end on the evening of Wednesday, Sept. 19, focuses on central themes of atonement and repentance.

Jewish people traditionally conduct a 25-hour period of fasting and intensive prayer during the holiday.
