The word "Kippur" in Yom Kippur or Day of Atonement comes from the Hebrew language. "Kippur" (כִּפּוּר) is derived from the Hebrew root "kaf-pur" (כ־פ־ר), which has the general meaning of "to atone," "to cover," or "to forgive." In the context of Yom Kippur, it specifically refers to the act of atoning for one's sins or seeking forgiveness from God.
During Yom Kippur, we have an opportunity to engage in prayers, fasting, and repentance as a way to seek forgiveness for our sins and to reconcile with God. The word "Kippur" reflects the central theme of this holy day, which is the atonement and forgiveness of sins. It's a time for introspection, reflection, and a sincere desire to be forgiven and start anew in one's relationship with God.
