Let's Get Psyched about The Day of Atonement
Happy New Year!!! I can't believe it is already the year of 5774. Where has all the time go. It feels like yesterday it was 5765. Its unreal! As the Jewish new year has passed, I have never looked forward to Yom Kippor as much as I do this year. Yeah, I can't tell a lie...I haven't fasted every year...even when I was healthy. Does that make me a bad Jew? Is it sacrilegious to look forward to the fasting part of the holiday for diet purposes? Probably so, but at least it normalizes the starving yourself at least for one day.
Can't wait for next year because it will be a palindrome year (5775 backwards is 5775).
