G'mar Hatimah Tovah (May You be Sealed for a Good Year)

Today is Yom Kippur, the day of atonement, the holiest and most solemn of the Jewish holidays. As I understand it, during the Days of Awe, the ten days leading up to Yom Kippur, Jews are directed to consider the sins of the previous year and repent, making amends to those they have harmed. Yom Kippur is the day to work it all out between you and God, asking for forgiveness, peace and to be sealed in the Book of Life for the coming year.

I'm not Jewish, only in the tangential sense that Mr. Rosenberg is Jewish, but I know a good thing when I hear one. So I've spent some time today working it out with God. I think I've got this. Rather, God's got this.

May you be sealed for a good year.


  1. So... what I get from this is, if you aren't Jewish, you could actually do it any time you want.
