More than a thousand Jews assembled for a solemn night of prayer at Temple Bay Yahm for the beginning of Yom Kippur on Wednesday night. A day of atonement and the beginning of a 24-hour fast, Yom Kippur is by far the most widely attended service of the year at the temple. The gathering has a heavy mood and is meant as a time for Jews to ask forgiveness from their family, friends and God for transgressions committed during the year. “It’s a beautiful ceremony, very serious,” said Executive Director Bill Shane.

Young Chang Children from Temple Isaiah of Newport Beach will send helium balloons with paper promises tucked inside up to the heavens Sunday. The promises, their Jewish New Year's resolutions, include "I will be kind to pets," "I will not steal" and "I will be a better person." All week, the children have been working on the project, which is their way of starting off fresh, Rabbi Marc Rubenstein said. Adults will do the same this Rosh Hashana, which means "head of the year," by taking stock of who they've been and who they want to be. The celebration marks the beginning of High Holy Days, which includes Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, starting at sundown Oct. 8. "It's a time of introspection," said Selma Sladek, director of arts and culture for the Jewish Community Center in Costa Mesa.

Yom Kippur arrives at sundown today. Those of the Jewish faith begin fasting at that point for a 24-hour period in which they will reflect upon the past year, ask for forgiveness for any sins committed and look forward to a fruitful new year. At Temple Bat Yahm in Newport Beach, an annual daylong food drive also coincides with the holiday, which ends at sunset Monday. This year, the synagogue plans to collect 11 tons of nonperishables that will then be donated to various Orange County charities.

This is the time of year when Mandy Wynn tends to feel homesick. She's settled into her life in Brooklyn, N.Y., but something about the Jewish High Holy Days gets her thinking about family traditions. And hers has plenty of them. The Sonenshines, one of the first families to join Newport Beach's Temple Bat Yahm, typically arrive early to synagogue for Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur to secure a seat near the front. Three generations chant together, led by grandpa Ygal Sonenshine.

Fasting might seem a grim topic in the midst of the Orange County Fair, beach picnics and the start of the Olympic Games. But highly observant Jews took part last weekend in Tisha B'Av, a 25-hour fast from food and drink to mark the destruction of the first and second Jewish temples (in 586 B.C. and A.D. 70) and, secondarily, the many other misfortunes that have befallen the Jewish people, especially the Holocaust. The other 25-hour fast for Jews is the more familiar Day of Atonement or Yom Kippur on Sept.
