Yom Kippur: Flowers Perfect for Your Celebration

Posted on September 20, 2012

That day has come for the Jewish community to celebrate its most important day of the year, Yom Kippur. This holy day is meant for purifying the soul and cleansing all your sins before God by fasting for 26 hours. The celebration before and after Yom Kippur are festive meals that ignite the abundant New Year and bless our children. Although this holiday is very serious and comes with much thought and prayer, it has an underlying meaning to symbolize the joy of the New Year and the confidence that God will forgive our sins.

I live in a very Jewish neighborhood in Brooklyn, NYC. I went on a run last night and happened to notice many Jewish families walking hand in hand, groups were singing Jewish hymns while others were laughing and chasing after each other. Regardless of our cultural differences, we all share common threads:
  • Embracing our family’s traditions
  • Celebrating our past, present, and futures
I even walked passed a group of Jewish boys singing and playing instruments for a couple walking to dinner. It put a smile on my face to see this appreciation and understanding of different religious holidays.
