The Ideal Yom Kippur


"This is the fast I will choose - Open the chains of wickedness, untie the ropes of tyranny, set free the crushed and release all who had been under tyranny. Break your breead for the hungry, and bring the desperately poor into your home; when you see an unclothed person, clothe him, and do not ignore your flesh [family].
"Then your light will break forth like the morning, and your healing will speedily sprout, your justness will travel before you and the glory of HaShem will gather you in. Then you will call and Gd will answer, you will cry out and Gd will say 'Here I am.'..."
(Isaiah 58:5-9 - The Haftorah of Yom Kippur morning)
May we all be sealed for a great new year, and have an easy and meaningful fast,
