Yom Kippur

I don't know if I'll be posting again today. I have to finish cooking for lunch and the pre-Yom Kippur meal, since it's a fast day.

What can I say besides that we live in difficult and confusing and frightening times?

Our prayers are in the plural, "we," "our." We don't just pray for ourselves and families and friends. We are praying for all Am Yisrael, the entire People of Israel. One of the other mitzvot in the group I wrote about, but didn't spell out, in Giving the Benefit of the Doubt demands that we intensify our prayers, with strong concentration and sincereity, not to just mumble jibberish, while our minds are else where.

May we pray hard and well, and may our prayers for all Am Yisrael be accepted by G-d.
