Israel Gets Ready for Yom Kippur

Israel is spending Friday preparing for Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish year. The holiday will begin at 4:41 p.m. in Jerusalem.

Police have upped their alert across the country, particularly near synagogues, which are expected to be crowded beginning on Friday evening. Paramedics are on alert as well, and are prepared to deal with any emergencies that may come up during the day.

The IDF has imposed a closure on Judea and Samaria, due to PA terrorists’ tendency to time their attacks to coincide with holidays. During the closure PA Arabs will be able to travel freely within PA-controlled areas, but will be able to enter Israeli areas only in cases of humanitarian necessity.
