For All Who Celebrate Yom Kippur 2013

Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement and the holiest day of the year for Jews, begins today at sundown.

I wish an easy fast and a solemn day of reflection for all who observe.

If you are looking for a place to worship in the Iowa City area, may I suggest Agudas Achim Congregation, located at 401 E. Oakdale Blvd., Coralville, IA 52241.
