Tonight at sundown Yom Kippur begins. It is the holiest day of the year for Jews.
To my Jewish readers, may you be blessed with an easy fast.
I was heartened to find out that my beloved Rabbi, who serves a predominately liberal congregation, will be speaking about supporting Israel. I am sure there will be many at services troubled that the sermon will not cover health care reform but I am relieved and delighted and hopeful.
I see it as a sign that better times lay ahead.
