Melania and I send our warmest greetings to all Jewish people on Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish faith.
Yom Kippur is a day of atonement, prayer, and fasting, and is the last day of the Ten Days of Repentance. Yom Kippur provides an opportunity to draw nearer to God through the practice of teshuva in accordance with the words of Leviticus: “For on this day shall atonement be made for you, to cleanse you; from all your sins shall ye be clean before the Lord.”
Melania and I pray that you are all inscribed in the Book of Life and hope this period of reflection and repentance leads to a deeper relationship with God. We send our best wishes for a meaningful Yom Kippur and a Gmar Chatima Tova.-The White House Press

Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, is perhaps the most important holiday in the Jewish calendar. It marks the end of a period of introspection and repentance. A 25-hour fast begins at sunset on September 18 ending sundown on September 19. pic.twitter.com/35eGJYDyXF

Some people throw parties, others go out to nice dinners with family and friends… I’ll be celebrating my birthday by leading Kol Nidrei. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

We just got sent this at the Office – an updated “Al Cheit” prayer for Yom Kippur, including among the many sins – “internet”, “iPhone”, “Twitter”, “YouTube”, “Galaxy”, “WhatsApp” and many more ???

Any moment, Israeli forces might show up and destroy the community of Khan al-Ahmar to make room for settlement expansion. Speak out to safeguard Israel’s future justice this Yom Kippur and take action to stop this demolition. https://t.co/Lp6y2036Fv#KhanAlAhmar pic.twitter.com/ene6yaQ2Tf

I can tell most of you haven't been repenting properly for Yom Kippur by how few of you have apologized for commenting without reading the article.

Ok, time to sign off!
Wishing all the Jewish people Gmar Chatima Tova this #YomKippur.
If I offended you on Twitter, you’re probably an Antisemite. ?
May you have a meaningful and peaceful fast, and be inscribed in the Book of Life!

A public service announcement from my mother, for all those observing #YomKippur which starts tonight, make sure you drink plenty of water. I'm 34…I still get messages telling me I haven't drunk enough. You don't want her texting you too….

Yom Kippur is a day of soul searching. A day for loving. A day of forgiveness and contemplation.

I had never thought of #YomKippur as a "dress rehearsal" for my own death, but this is a profound and painful reflection by @bariweiss. "The day asks us to sustain the stare." Fast well, fellow sinners. https://t.co/2iKqFCTGqH
