Judgement Day יום הדין

day of judgement  יום הדין

Yom Hadinthe Day of Judgement  

According to Jewish Tradition Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are also called Yom Hadin, the Day of Judgement,  because God passes judgement on all living creatures.

To Quote one of Yom Kippur’s most known liturgy poems, Unetanneh tokef  ונתנה תוקף

All mankind will pass before You like a flock of sheep. Like a shepherd pasturing his flock, making sheep pass under his staff, so shall You cause to pass, count, calculate, and consider the soul of all the living; and You shall apportion the destinies of all Your creatures and inscribe their verdict.

On Rosh Hashanah will be inscribed and on Yom Kippur will be sealed how many will pass from the earth and how many will be created; who will live and who will die; who will die at his predestined time and who before his time; who by water and who by fire, who by sword, who by beast, who by famine, who by thirst, who by upheaval, who by plague, who by strangling, and who by stoning. Who will rest and who will wander, who will live in harmony and who will be harried, who will enjoy tranquility and who will suffer, who will be impoverished and who will be enriched, who will be degraded and who will be exalted. But Repentance, Prayer, and Charity avert the severe Decree!
