Yom Kippur – prayer as a central element of the day

Dear Bat Kol alums and friends, 


I just spent a moving hour listening to Rabbi Jonathan Sacks on Understanding Prayer: The soul’s language (10/10)—a series of 10 short reflections, accompanied with song and artistic designs, related to Yom Kippur,  the holiest day of the year for our Jewish brothers and sisters.  As I listened and entered into the spirit of the festival I had a strong urge to share it with you. Here is the link.  




I close with a Jewish greeting for this High Holy Day: 


“Gemar chatimah tovah” (גמר חתימה טובה) — may you be sealed for a good year.
