Yom Kippur

How can we emerge from Yom Kippur one step closer to our best selves?
“Yom Kippur’s extended mediation on morality and fragility helps us to cultivate a deepened awareness of life and our engagement with it,” writes Rabbi Deborah Waxman, Ph.D. “We can emerge from the holy day with an increased capacity for openheartedness, for love, and connection.”
On this page, you can connect with engaging resources from our network of websites. We’ve gathered them for you to help deepen your Yom Kippur experience and make the process more meaningful. Each of us, by striving to be better people, can make the world a better place. May you have a good conclusion.
