Sundown tonight is the start of Yom Kipper.

It's the most important holiday on the Jewish Calendar, one of several called the High Holy Days. Last week was the Jewish New Year (based on a lunar calendar) and tonight until tommow at sunset is the Day of Atonement, where we fast from all food and water, confess our sins as a community (which means that as individuals we may ask for forgivness for something that we didn't do personally but a Jew somewhere may have done, ) and pray in the synagogue. I wont be posting until it's over. Maybull is 13 years old and, technically responsible for her own sins (under that age, parents are responsible) but since she's a dog, she's perfect. Although she has been piddling in the house a lot.

See you all in a couple of days.

wishing you blessings at this special time..............

and thanks for the information.  It always helps to understand the meaning of these most holy times!
