Eve of Yom Kippur
All Day

Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, is the holiest day of the Jewish year.  It is observed with strict fasting.  To re-establish oneness with God, Jews ask forgiveness and forgive others and confess their sins and ask for God's forgiveness.  Yom Kippur ends the period of penitence begun on Rosh Hashanah.  The observance begins at sundown.

Event Image Exhibition | "David Roberts: Travels in the Holy Land" | Aug. 10 - Dec. 22
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

David Roberts (1796-1864) was a Scottish painter who traveled to the Near East in the late 1830s and produced a series of bound, hand-colored lithographs of Egypt and the Holy Land in the 1840s from sketches made during his travels. These folios provided Europeans, and eventually Americans, with their first views of the exotic Orient, changing forever their vision of Egypt and the Middle East. This small exhibition features several of Roberts’ prints.
