I would like to wish everyone observing Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, a thoughtful holiday and an easy fast – Tzom kal. Yom Kippur is a time for reflection and repentance, and an opportunity to be open and honest with ourselves and others. It provides a chance to seek and grant forgiveness, and to enter the New Year with a clear conscience and an open mind. I hope you find meaning in your meditations and peace in the New Year!
