Yom Kippur. Home from work today. I will be spending
most of the day in synagogue. This is the Jewish day
of Atonement, sort of our equivalent of a
confessional. The observance requires fasting, no
food or water for 24 hours. We are supposed to spend
the day thinking about the sins we have committed in
the past year and asking G-d for forgiveness. G-d can
only forgive us for sins committed against him though.
For those sins we have committed against other
people, we must ask forgiveness directly from the
person we have wronged.
