Yom Kippur, which is also known as The Day of Atonement, is the holiest day of the year in the Jewish faith where followers observe the holiday through fasting and prayer. The "Al Chet" confession is one of several prayers that are said multiple times during a service at a synagogue.

The "Al Chet" confession of sins has been listed in English below, courtesy of Chabad.org. The prayer can be said up to 10 times during Yom Kippur services:

"Is this not the fast I will choose? To undo the fetters of wickedness, to untie the bands of perverseness, and to let out the oppressed free, and all perverseness you shall eliminate. Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and moaning poor you shall bring home; when you see a naked one, you shall clothe him, and from your flesh you shall not hide?”

"Then your light shall break forth as the dawn, and your healing shall quickly sprout, and your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of the Lord shall gather you in. Then you shall call and the Lord shall answer, you shall cry and He shall say, ‘Here I am,’ if you remove perverseness from your midst, putting forth the finger and speaking wickedness."
