Yom Tov- Yom Kippur
Work of Artist Shoshana Bauer
Instead of writing my own article for Yom Kippur this year, I’m opting to share some the really incredible work of my fellow bloggers and writers. The articles are all relating to Yom Kippur, but the subject range from the correspondence of Yom Kippur and the Autumnal Equinox to the ritual of Karporot to the Book of Jonah — and beyond.
I wish you all a meaningful fast and may you be released from vows undertaken in good conscious that you were unable to honor this year. May we all become more aware of the vows we take and do our best to honor them.
