In Honor of the Yom Kippur Fast

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.
