To my friends and family who begin the observance of Yom Kippur this evening I wish you an easy fast and may you be inscribed in the book.
I found this passage from the observance that should apply not just to this “Sabbath of the Sabbath” but to every day of the year.
To those I may have wronged,
I ask for your forgiveness.
For those I may have helped,
I wish I could have done more.
For the many I neglected to help
I am truly sorry.
To those who helped me,
I am deeply grateful.
