About a week ago I did a guest post at Sunflower Schoolhouse about the Jewish New Year celebrations. Today, at sundown, I will begin the observance of Yom Kippur. The most holy day of the year for Jews.

Incase you didn’t get a chance to read it, I thought I’d share it with you today.

Also, my friend Laura, who blogs at ChambanaMoms wrote a beautiful post about Yom Kippur and what she and her congregation are doing to help fight hunger in Eastern Illinois. It’s part of her Being a Jew in C-U series. My synagogue collects food for Project Isaiah which is a special food bank for Jewish people so they can have kosher or specifically jewish-type foods.

In addition, Kim Moldofsky, from Hormone-Colored Days, has a (not so) Wordless Wednesday post about Tashlich (pronounce tash-leek). Tashlich is an often overlooked Jewish celebration of casting off sins. It’s a beautiful and very hands-on ways to share the asking of forgiveness from G-D in a very kid-friendly way.

Have a great day!
