Everything closed down for Yom Kippur, except the Arab's rocket launchers

In Israel, Yom Kippur is not the day to go shopping, take a bus or go to the movies. Everything closes down for close to 30 hours,, giving people a chance to eat, then fast 25 hours and finally eat again. Ruthie Blum wrote about the kids who ride bikes in the middle of the street in relative safety.

But Yom Kippur wasn't just a day of quiet prayer, reflections, fasting and cycling in the south. 2 Qassam rockets fired at Sderot Monday (Yom Kippur.)
