The Ramblings of a Contemporary Jew:  Yom Kippur

I believe that one should both personalize and own one's belief and value system, in terms of religion, ideology and in how one leads one's life from day to day, year to year, life to death.

Jewish festivals and their meaning:  Yom Kippur and Succot

Amidst the welter of information available on Jewish holidays and their origin, we frequently lose site of the philosophical significance of these festivals and their inter-connected nature.

There is more to this "High Holiday" season than meets the eye. We may think of them as Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur. Truth be told, that is really only 3/10 of the picture: Rosh Hashana marks the first and second days of the Jewish month of Tishrei; Yom Kippur is celebrated on the 10th of Tishrei, inclusively encompassing the "Ten Days of Repentance" ("Aseret Yemei Teshuva").
