The holiest day on the Jewish calendar, Yom Kippur or Day of Atonement, is commemorated eight-days after Rosh HaShanah or the New Year. Fasting food and drink and not working from sundown to sundown is customary for observers. Below is a break-fast menu that is traditional for North American Jews for concluding this somber feast with a joyous and easy menu. No baking necessary, this meal is a breeze to have in the fridge and pull out and assemble. It is light and easy on the stomach after fasting.

Smoked salmon in thin slices
Cream cheese sprinkled with chopped chives
Capers and fresh dill sprigs for garnish on the smoked salmon

Fresh fruit salad, mixed with yogurt and honey dressing
And betayavon or good appetite!
