Pre-Yom Kippur Blog.

I'm going offline till after Yom Kippur, so I just wanted to take this opportunity to wish all of the Muqata's Jewish readers, a "Gmar Chatima Tova" -- and ask forgiveness if I offended anyone via my blog this past year.

I recall a radio show on Erev Yom Kippur many years ago; the gist was this.

Here in Israel, it's a few hours before Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year. Stores, factories, restaurants, TV & radio stations, everything is shutting down, as of clouds of purity wash over the country. Dressed in white, the vast majority of the House of Israel go to shul, fast, and commorate Yom Kippur in some manner.

For 24 hours, there is no radio, no television, no food, and a rare harmony envelopes the land.

May we all be inscribed in the Book of Life.

See you next week.

This is the Muqata signing off...


Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael

Jameel, could you translate the words to the song that is playing in the background of your blog today. It's very beautiful, but I don't know Hebrew.

Jenifer: The words from from Tehillim/Psalms: "If I forget you Jerusalem, may my right hand lose it's cunning; should my tounge stick to my palate if I forget to remember you [Jerusalem] on my day of rejoicing..."

All: Thanks for your good wishes: Gmar Tov to us all.
