On Yom Kippur, our Day of Atonement, we fast to free ourselves from our daily needs. This allows us the time we need to concentrate on the tasks at hand on this holy day: t’shuvah (repentance), t’fillah (prayer), and tzedakah (charity). As we refrain from pleasure and deny our bodies nourishment, we hope to draw ourselves closer to God.

During Yom Kippur worship services, we read the stirring words of the Prophet Isaiah, who challenges us to use this fast day as a reminder that if hunger and want still exist in our world, then our fast and our prayers are incomplete. Read More
