Yom Kippur is considered to be the holiest day in the Jewish calendar. People usually spend it fasting and praying. Therefore, on this day you can see how life in Israeli cities stops. All the shops, cafes and restaurants are closed, however, you can see people walking and socializing as no-one can work on the holiest day of the year. Another thing that may attract your attention - children on bikes. Kids are enjoying 24 hours when there are so few cars on the roads!
