Shalom and good afternoon, loyal readers! Yom Kippur is on its way. In fact, it begins at sunset tonight! Are you prepared for the Day of Atonement? Have any sins you need to confess from the past year? Now is the time to do it.
Today, on the eve of Yom Kippur, it is also a time to feast! Tomorrow is a day of fasting, but today it is mitzvah to eat plenty (though keep the foods light!) You should have had a nice big breakfast, and a groisse lunch. Make sure you grab some challah bread and honey over at Whole Foods in Harbor East.
Tomorrow may be a day without food and leather shoes, but do not fret, for sunset tomorrow evening it is time to feast again! Many Jews tend to break the fast with dairy, but it seems to be up to the individual. When you hear that shofar, the options are limitless. There is a ton of traditional food to choose from, many of which can be bought at Whole Foods right now. There you can find kugel, blintzes, hummus, herring and more.
Don’t worry; gentiles are more than welcome to purchase the food as well. And if you miss out this weekend, the food will still be waiting there for you at Whole Foods through next week.
