Yom Kippur, The Day of Atonement, is considered the most important holiday of the Jewish year. Traditionally, we fast, attend synagogue and practice the rituals of introspection and repentance during worship services. Each year, we live, act, and strive toward our goals and achieve new levels of skills. Reflecting on our own experiences, we can look closely at ourselves, be mindful of what needs tending, be willing to look seriously at our faults, and rededicate ourselves to be better humans. In this vein, everyone should set aside time for self-improvement. A nightly exercise could be to review the day’s progress and declare whether we felt it was a pass or a fail in terms of our goals for ourselves as human beings. If we keep track during the year, perhaps it will be easier to recall the “fails” on Yom Kippur so we can reflect on them and repent them.
