Yom Kippur began at sundown on Friday. In reverence of the holiday, many stars are wishing Jewish fans an easy fast on Twitter. See celebrity tweets below.

Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year in the Jewish religion, marks the end of the High Holy Days, also known as the Days of Awe, which began with Rosh Hashanah. During this time, one is supposed to reflect on his or her wrongdoings and ask for forgiveness before embarking on another year as a better person. It culminates in the Day of Atonement, which is observed through both fasting and prayer.

Among those recognizing the occasion is Ellen DeGeneres, who tweeted, “Wishing all my Jewish friends a good #YomKippur.” Josh Gad wrote, “Here’s wishing all of you who practice a healthy and safe fast.” Paula Abdul shared, “Have an easy and meaningful fast this Yom Kippur. Gemar chatima tova. Love, Paula.” Melissa Rivers told followers, “Wishing you an easy fast on Yom Kippur.

“Wishing all my Hebrews an easy fast but enough atonement that we make it into the book of life together,” Samantha Ronson said on both Twitter and Instagram, including the hashtag, “#imsorry.” Lena Dunham revealed, “Can’t fast for Yom Kippur (low blood sugar makes me destructive) but a digital fast will do. Have a gorgeous reflective Fri/Sat.” Michael Ian Black took a humorous approach, writing, “To all my fellow Jews, I wish you a miserable and guilt-ridden Yom Kippur.”

Joshua Malina tweeted, “If I’ve offended any of u in the past year…no, can’t do this w a straight face. But I wish an easy fast and g’mar tov to all who observe.” He later added, “As we head into a day of fasting, it is an apt time to think of the hungry — of whom there are many — and to send support if we can.” Meanwhile, President Donald Trump posted a photo of himself praying at the Western Wall. He wrote as a caption, “My thoughts are with all those observing Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish year.”

Vice President Mike Pence retweeted the message, and added, “On this holiest of Jewish days, may our Jewish friends be granted a Yom Kippur of atonement, forgiveness & inscription in the Book of Life.” And Ivanka Trump said, “Wishing everyone an easy and meaningful fast and may we all be inscribed in the Book of Life. G’mar Hatimah Tovah! #YomKippur.” As Gossip Cop reported, stars also celebrated Rosh Hashanah on Twitter last week.
