The Moon Of The Day Of Atonement in Israel

This photo of the moon was shot in Tel Aviv, Israel at the 21/9/2015, the first day of Yom Kippur (a.k.a Day of Atonement).It is the holiest day of the year in Judaism, and there was a perfect, bright half-moon that seemed to be listening to the people's prayers.
