Dear readers.

For many people in the world (including me), it is Yom Kippur, the Jewish day of atonement. Even as an agnostic, this is the one day my religious side wins over.

On this day, Jews everywhere fast for 25 hours, and attend services for most of the time.
This post is for those who celebrate this holiday or not, to reflect on yourself.



*I am not trying to push a religious agenda Fizzer. This topic is simply a quiet place for the spiritual to reflect.

So I wish you all an easy fast, and if you are not celebrating Yom Kippur, feel free to talk anyway.

I thought other people might want to reflect with each other.

Just another bad idea with good intentions...

Anyway, what exactly do Jewish people celebrate on this day? I mean what are they atoning for?

Sins.

Its like how Christians have many services to repent, Jews do it all in a day. Basically, we confess our sins and ask God to forgive us for them.

You have to fast for 25 hours, but at the end families usually have a very large meal. Children under 13 are exempted from fasting, and if you need food/drink to survive (if you need to take an important medicine, but need a meal for it to work), that's OK.

It's a pretty big list of things in the prayer for confession, so here's a link:
