In Honor of the Yom Kippur Fast

· dKo journal, Edgewise, Paleoblogs

This is from the weekly prophetical reading that is designated for Yom Kippur (Beginning this year on the evening of October 12.):
Jeremiah 58
6 …this is the fast I desire:
To unlock the fetters of wickedness,
And untie the cords of the yoke
To let the oppressed go free;
To break off every yoke.
7 It is to share your bread with the hungry,
And to take the wretched poor into your home;
When you see the naked, to clothe him,
And not to ignore your own kin.
8 Then shall your light burst through like the dawn

May we all strive for its fulfillment, and may your name be inscribed for good in the book of life.
Love,
David
