I first learned about Yom Kippur from the tv show The West Wing, I feel that it is a very nice oliday, you ask forgiveness from everyone for a couple of days before you ask God for forgiveness. Hope people from all religions do this. It is a cliche but this is because there is a grain of truth in it but, a lot of religous people are hypocrites , I know of a a very religous man who doesn’t talk to his gay son, and a couple of other stories like that. I consider it right that before God can forgive you you must first ask and give forgiveness to others.

Happy Yom Kippur to our Jewish brothers!

Happy Yom Kippur

Forgot to post this at the appropriate time. Oh well, better late than never.

By way of explanation: my father worked at a New York insurance company that was, rather oddly, an overwhelmingly Catholic institution. (A relative from the Sephardic side of the family, named Menahem, also worked there; everyone called her Monahan.)

Anyway, my father did take the Jewish holidays off, as a matter of principle — and his co-workers tried. So they would indeed wish him happy Day of Atonement.
