Yom Kippur is considered by many Jews to be the most solemn day of the year. Yom Kippur is often called the ‘day of repentance’ as it inspires introspection, prayer, and petitions for forgiveness so that Jews can enter the Rosh Hashanah (New Year) with a clean slate.

As we approach Yom Kippur it is good to recall that the hope for “more time” is not really in our hands. The length of our journey of life is fixed from above. Its quality, however, can only be determined by our own free will. It is we who can choose more value above more time. It is we who have the option to select the sacred over the profane, the sacred over the superficial, the meaningful over the insignificant.
There is something far more important than counting our days. It is to make our days count. That is the commitment to the Elohim I’m going to make on this coming Yom Kippur.
And hopefully, because I will choose the option of “more value”, the Almighty will be kind enough to grant me “more time” as well.
