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.
