‘For a solemn holiday focused on the spiritual realm and not eating, Yom Kippur has two surprisingly joyous food traditions,” Leah Koenig wrote in Modern Jewish Cooking of the custom to feast before and after the fast.

“Like gearing up for a long bike ride or run, people tend to load up on carbs... The most important thing for fasters, I have found, is to drink lots of water in the day or two leading up to Yom Kippur. It makes the day so much easier.”
