Yom Kippur

Yom Hakipurim
Literally – “like Purim”
But how can that be?


Yom Kippur – solemn
Purim – quite the opposite
A raucous yom tov


Mirror images
One holiday physical
One spiritual


How are they alike?
Each provides a unique way
To think about G-d


My thoughts this week are based on several Purim articles I found while searching the web this week for “Yom Kippur” and “Yom Hakipurim”. Click on the links to learn more about the connections between Yom Kippur and Purim from Wilshire Boulevard Temple, Aish, and Chabad.

May you have an easy fast, and a spiritual Yom Kippur.
