It begins, as do all the fasts and festivals in the Jewish calendar, in the evening, and continues until the following evening. During the twen ty-four hours from sunset to sunset no food or water passes the lips of the devout Hebrew. Men and women alike are required to fast, ana the only ones who are exempted from this requirement are children, the verv aged, persons in ill health, and nurs ing mothers.

The services in the orthodox synagogue aro practically continuous. This evening the holiday is ushered in wtih the Kol Nidre, ob serbed by the reformed and ortho dox alike, although under different cir cumstances.

The services of tomorrow are divided into four sec tions known as Shacheras, Mussaf, Mincha and N'hila, but there is no in termission between the different sec tions, and the services continue un til sunset, when the Shofar is sounded once only as an indication that the fast is ended.
