When Does Yom Kippur End?

From the "Metropolitan Diary" in the NY Times, Oct 22 1997

The season of the Jewish holidays reminded Loise Young of a visit to Zabar's on Yom Kippur several years ago. At 2 PM, the place was, she said, "a madhouse" of carts and baskets filled to overflowing with special holiday treats. As she approached the cashier, she spoke to the woman in line in front of her.

Ms. Young: "Gosh, I thought Zabar's wouldn't be so crowded at this time because of the Jewish holiday"

Woman: "Me too, I thought Jewish people were supposed to be praying in temple until sundown."

Nearby third woman pushing heavily laden cart: "It's sundown in Jerusalem already."
