I think this should go to Israel. A higher percentage of Jewish people live in Israel, and Yom Kippur is just an important part of their culture. Yom Kippur is also observed in different countries of the world by Jewish people. Yom Kippur in English means the day of atonement. Yom Kippur is characterized by prayer and fasting. You also see people looking sober as they reflect on their past mistakes and various sins they have committed over the past year.

About 70 percent of Jewish people use to observe Yom Kippur. Yom Kippur is seen as the most important holiday in the Jewish calendar. It is observed on the tenth day after Rosh Hashanah. The reason for Yom Kippur should not be attached to the fasting alone, but also to the spiritual exercise that must be achieved. Genuine repentance is what is needed, as God can never be deceived.
