Yom-Kipur is the day of atonement a day sanctified in the israeli calender when like the sabath no work is done but the focus leading up to this day is a reflection of sins committed and this is the day they ask for forgiveness, it is part of a series of feasts at this time of year the next one in a few days is the feast of tabernacles and you can already see the booths being made around the place. today no cars are allowed to be driven and everything is closed so for much of the day it is very quiet and at times feels like noone is here at all, a few people are around we saw some walking from a synagogue and a few people were swimming in the sea.

there was breakfast at the hotel and then we walked down to the sea of galilee for a swim and walked along the side for a while before going back to the hotel most of the day we spent on our balcony and we made our own lunch and dinner and recapped where we had been and talked about where we were going the next few days as well as reading a few chapters about jesus movements around the sea from matthew

we had a good relaxing day in the peacefull surrounds of tiberius by the sea of galilee.
