Cheese Blintz Casserole

Yom Kippur is also called the Day of Atonement. This observance always comes eight days after Rosh Hashanah. The mood turns from festive to somber as a day of fasting from both food and drink begins in recognition of the past year's sins. After fasting, many gather with family and friends at sunset to "break the fast." Light dairy or breakfast foods are common.
