“The Day of Atonement symbolizes the binding of Satan so humans will no longer be deceived by him and the demons (Revelation 20:1-3). This act prepares the world for what the next holy day represents” (from the FAQ “What Are the Meanings of Each of God’s Festivals?”).

The Day of Atonement will be observed this year on Oct. 8, 2011 (from sunset Oct. 7 until sunset Oct. 8).
