Can Gentiles/Noahides participate in Yom Kippur and to what extent? I have read by some Rabbis that they not only can but should! Biblical resources would be most helpful.

  • Just to clarify what you mean by “participate:” do you mean attending shul? Do you mean hearing the shofar on Rosh Hashanah and fasting on Yom Kippur? Do you mean eating the apple in honey on Rosh Hashanah? Any and all of the above? – DonielF Sep 5 '18 at 12:09

    Mostly the apples and honey :) honestly, I am most focused on Yom Kippur and teshuva. Prayers and seeking repentance – charles S Sep 5 '18 at 12:10
