What Yom Kippur means to me

Yom Kippur is the Jewish holiday of Atonement. It is one of the most holiest days for Judaism because it is the day of atonement after the Jewish new year. On this day, we ask God to forgive our sins. Yom Kippur is such an important day to me because to me, it represents purity and forgiveness. Yom Kippur allows us to recognize and confess our mistakes. For me, Yom Kippur is like a clean slate. I begin the new year without any emotional baggage or karma, because I ask God for forgiveness.

More importantly, Yom Kippur gives me peace of mind. I feel refreshed and safe on this very day because I let go of the things keeping me back. Yom Kippur is the day in the year where we have a chance to start fresh and apologize to those for our wrongdoings. Fasting and giving up on certain things is our way of asking for forgiveness. This symbolizes a renewal in our inner development because we are actively seeking to create change. As a person who creates transformations, this day is especially important for me because it presents us with the opportunity to start anew. I hope y’all have a great day and I wish you the best.
