(BLOG) Yom Kippur: When Israel Stops, Looks Inward

"The highest of the High Holidays – Yom Kippur – is only about a day away, and Jews around the world are preparing by attempting to become better people.

Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, is a Divinely-designated day that the Torah explains 'will atone for you [plural] to purify you from all your sins before G-d.' Such atonement, however, must generally be accompanied by teshuvah, a process that includes introspection, confession of sins, remorse, and a commitment not to repeat them. One must also appease and ask forgiveness from those he has harmed or insulted over the year."
