Jewish men participate in Selichot, Hebrew for forgiveness, a prayer in which Jews offer repentance and ask God to forgive their sins, ahead of the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, at the Western Wall, Judaism's holiest prayer site in Jerusalem's Old City on October 2, 2014. Yom Kippur is the holiest of Jewish holidays, when observant Jews atone for the sins of the past year, refrain from eating and drinking and attend intense prayer services in synagogues.
