Musical Yom Kippur Explanation: Just ask Jonah!

Recommended for all ages

Yom Kippur is an amazing opportunity to change, grow and connect.

Just ask Jonah, the hero of the Yom Kippur afternoon haftarah. Check in with Jonah and the whale (okay, fish) and learn how Yom Kippur connects us to God, to our communities, and to our true selves.

After you watch the animated short explore another of our Yom Kippur offerings, Jonah Run a Bible-based infinite runner game.
