Some protesters of the Occupy Wall Street movement gave atonement for their sins Friday in lower Manhattan.
Joining members of the Jewish community protesters celebrated Yom Kippur the holiest and most solemn day of the year for Jews. The day is recognized by atonement for sins, repentance, fasting and prayers.
Members of the Jewish community came to Wall Street to celebrate Yom Kippur to show solidarity with Wall Street protesters. During the service prayers were said followed by joyous singing.
The celebration took place at the Harry B. Helmsley Plaza on Broadway, which is located across the street from where the protesters are camped out in Zuccotti Park.
Saturday marks the end of week three for the Occupy Wall Street protesters.
