This Yom Kippur, many of us will be fasting in our homes. It can be a real challenge to be close to the kitchen while fasting!
I hope you were able to create a mikdash m’at in your home for Rosh Hashanah. If you were not, I encourage you to do so for Yom Kippur, as it will give you a special place for prayer, contemplation and atonement on this most holy of days. Our Yom Kippur fast is not meant to be easy, but this will be a different level of difficulty for many of us. I hope the ideas in the list below will help you have a meaningful fast at home this year. And if you are not fasting, may you find other tools to help you have a meaningful Yom Kippur.
May you be sealed in the Book of Life for peace, health, prosperity and blessing.
