From the Rabbi
Here is the latest TW@TBI message from Rabbi Ruhi Sophia.
Many people are unable to fast on Yom Kippur for various reasons, including myself as a nursing mother. Because I understand the sight of the rabbi drinking water during prayer on Yom Kippur will be a jarring one, I wanted to re-share information with any of you who may be interested about how I intend to follow the fast as best as possible, using a traditional leniency dating back to the Talmud, for those who are ill, pregnant, or nursing, known as “Shiurim” (measures). It is a fairly technical concept in Jewish practice, but one that may be meaningful to others in the community who are not fasting. And whether you are fasting or not, gmar hatima tova – may you be sealed for a good year.
