RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Yom Kippur is a day of Atonement but children can have a day of fun on Wednesday at Temple Beth El of Rutherford.

Kids of all ages are welcome to attend a program with entertainment at 11 a.m. Parents are also invited and no membership is required.

Temple Beth El of Rutherford is the only synagogue in the Meadowlands and South Bergen County area.

The temple services Carlstadt, East Rutherford, Garfield, Harrison, Hasbrouck-Heights, Kearny, Little Ferry, Lodi, Lyndhurst, Moonachie, North Arlington, Rutherford, Secaucus, Teterboro, Wallington and Wood-Ridge.

Yom Kippur means "Day of Atonement," and is considered the the most important holiday of the Jewish year.

Many Jews refrain from work, fast and/or attend synagogue services on this day, according to Judaism 101.

Most of the holiday is spent in synagogue, praying. In Orthodox synagogues, services begin early in the morning (8 or 9 a.m.) and continue until about 3 p.m.

An afternoon nap is customary around 5 or 6 p.m. Evening services follow until nightfall.

The blowing of the tekiah gedolah, a long blast on the shofar comes after.

See T emple Beth El of Rutherford for information about the children's fun.

Temple Beth-El Rutherford is located at 185 Montross Ave, Rutherford.
