Yom Kippur

"On Rosh Hashanah it is inscribed, and on Yom Kippur it is sealed..."
The imagery on Yom Kippur that the gates of heaven are closing after being open for the past 10 days is so striking. The idea that in the final minutes of the holiday, as we stand weak from hunger and thirst, our prayers have a direct line to Gd is powerfully spiritual for me. 

We've opened a new year. Entered into a new chance at so much in our lives. What will we make of the year ahead of us, now that the doors have closed, ushering us into the future? Time will tell.

G’mar chatima tova, Tamar. (I totally had to cheat and look up what the proper greeting for Yom Kippur is. I hope that I got it correct.) Also, I hope that your fasting goes easy, my friend. The imagery you shared really is quite powerful.

Read your post twice, because I wanted to understand the imagery. So picturesque. Thank you for sharing the underpinnings of your faith.
