Rabbi Joseph Schonberger, right, blesses children Wednesday at Temple El Emeth in Liberty to mark the conclusion of Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement. The event also included the sounding of the shofar, or ram’s horn, by several members. Jewish people traditionally observe the holy day of Yom Kippur with a 25-hour period of fasting and intensive prayer, often spending much of the day in synagogue services.
