Awash in memories of Ramah Day Camp In Nyack where I was blessed to spend 13 sacred, formative summers, where I fully experienced Tisha Be'Av for the first time, where I sat with my beloved teacher Rabbi Stanley Bramnick z"l, where, through the gift of the music I learned from him I once again am sitting with him, crying about the broken-ness of the world and dreaming of its rebirth. Shabbat Shalom, friends. May our tears be limited. May our singing never end. #ShabbatChazon #ShabbatShalom

What is Yom Kippur? Yom Kippur is a Jewish holiday in which people ask for forgiveness. It's marked by fasting and abstaining from things that give pleasure and comfort. Yet, "Yom Kippur is the happiest day on the calendar," said Rabbi Menachem Creditor. "It's a day where I get to start again. I get to be forgiven," he told InsideEdition.com. Rabbi Creditor urges people to "think of someone that you know whose feelings you might've hurt even accidentally, and take the moment and go apologize." #InsideEdition
