    I wonder what Shuli's super-Jew mother thinks of that?

    Cue Colin Powell:
    Yom Kippur is the holiest day of the year--the day on which we are closest to God and to the quintessence of our own souls. It is the Day of Atonement--"For on this day He will forgive you, to purify you, that you be cleansed from all your sins before G‑d" (Leviticus 16:30).

    For nearly twenty-six hours--from several minutes before sunset on Tishrei 9 to after nightfall on Tishrei 10--we "afflict our souls": we abstain from food and drink, do not wash or anoint our bodies, do not wear leather footwear, and abstain from marital relations.


    Before Yom Kippur we perform the Kaparot atonement service; we request and receive honey cake, in acknowledgement that we are all recipients in G-d's world and in prayerful hope for a sweet and abundant year; eat a festive meal; immerse in a mikvah; and give extra charity. Late afternoon we eat the pre-fast meal, following which we bless our children, light a memorial candle as well as the holiday candles, and go to the synagogue for Kol Nidrei services.


    We know Howard won't have sex today- that's a given. Does babysitter porn count as "marital relations"?

    My post makes me feel like BenBas- maybe I should have used a blue font and a few :).

    Most the Jewish attorneys I know, even the ones who are agnostic/atheist, take today off and do the Temple thing.

    I don't know if it's Pascal's wager or tradition, but they do it. No chow since last night and a huge feast tonight.
