My Yom Kippur
Yom Kippur begins today at sunset (at 7.40 pm in Rome) and ends tomorrow at nightfall (September 28 at 7.38 pm in Rome).
Like almost everything else this year, Kippur is looking different: we will remember it for social distancing, preventive measures and limited services and contact between us.
Across the country, synagogues are moving services outside or spacing out chairs.
I’ll stay at home like many other people, far from my parents again.
Maybe sometimes we have to get away to feel closer. So I decided that during this fast I will try to focus on finding a way to make things better for me, for my family and friends instead on what I’m missing.
Wishing you an easy fast and a meaningful and safe Yom Kippur!
