Kol Nidrei

1) Opening of the Ark.
It is very meritorious for one to open the Ark, and take out the Torah-scrolls to be held during Kol Nidrei. While removing the Sifrei Torah one should kiss and caress them while confessing his sins
Opening the Ark, especially the first one, funnels through the blessings of G‑d.

2) Holding the Torah Scrolls
It is taught: It is a source of merit to hold any of the scrolls during Kol Nidrei and is a very great privilege (Ari Z"L).
This honor stands you right next to the cantor installing you as a member of the ecclesiastical court, which annuls all unfulfilled vows, thereby, dispensing forgiveness to the Jewish community.

3. Maftir Yonah
This is the most important Aliyah of the day, as well as the last. Tradition tells us that buying this honor is a special segulah for wealth. In communities the world over this merit is bought for thousands of dollars. Remember, you reap what you sow. There can be no better investment than this.

4. Neilah – "The Closing Prayer"
This is the final Ark opening of Yom Kippur. Suffice it to say, this is truly the end – the chatimah – of our service and petition to G‑d. This is your final chance, before the "Gates of Heaven" close ("Neilah").
With this honor you are the "gatekeeper" for our final supplications. Tradition tells us that the one who merits opening the Ark for Neilah will be blessed with long life!

5. Break the Fast
Sponsor the Yom Kippur Break Fast to bring joy to the many Jews who have been fasting all day.
