Yom Kippur

Last week was the Jewish celebration of Yom Kippur and of course I had to participate. Two of my residents invited me to go with them and I quickly obliged. Jewish people usually fast for the holiday but I wasn’t that committed! Although I did eat two smaller meals instead of nice healthy ones like I usually do.

The synagogue we went too was very close to Butler. We got there very quickly and stayed there for two services. The first was a memorial and reflection service and the second one was one for repentance of sins. It was definitely a new experience hearing people speaking Hebrew. My favorite part was wearing the yamaka. It was a really fun and entertaining experience and hopefully I’ll be able to celebrate more things with them!
