I’m not Jewish but I love Yom Kippur. Scheduling atonement in your calendar is so very smart.
Yom Kippur is a serious holiday even for Jews who are not observant and don’t fast. Here on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, many stores are closed. This day of atonement brings an unusual quiet to the heart of New York City.
As it should. Atonement is serious, and seriously necessary.
Yet other than Yom Kippur, who makes time to stop and look past the obvious, to review and atone on a regular basis? I’m sorry to say I don’t. Do you?
