The obligation to confess is on the eve of the Day of Atonement, when it grows dark. Still, the rabbis said, one should confess previously to the meal; for if something happen to him durning the meal, he will have died without a confession.

But although one has confessed before the meal, he should confess again in the evening, and once more the next morning, and in the additional prayer, afternoon prayer, and the concluding prayer.
