Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, falls on the Hebrew calendar date of 10 Tishrei. Here are the coinciding secular dates for upcoming years:
2013: September 13-14
2014: October 3-4
2015: September 22-23
2016: October 11-12
2017: September 29-30
Note: The Jewish calendar date begins at sundown of the night beforehand. Thus all Yom Kippur observances begin at sundown on the first secular date listed, and conclude the following day at nightfall.
I missed Kol Nidre till next year September 22, 2015 but I should be leaving my home around 5:50pm until 10:00pm and next day September 23, 2015 the day service in Congregation Ohr Torah in Woodmere and I should have the nice Cantor from Yemen as a Yemeni guy who will be the cantor from the Middle East as I will be held with Kol Nidre in the service anytime soon as the sun goes down prior to be fasting.

Yom Kippur and all Jewish holidays are observed on the same date on the Hebrew calendar, whichever secular date that coincides with applies to wherever one lives.

In this case, Yom Kippur supersedes Shabbat so we do not make kiddush nor the blessing on challah, nor do we eat or drink anything else. We do eat two full meals on Friday before the start of the fast. For more information please see: Fasting when Yom Kippur is on Shabbat
