Reflections on Yom Kippur, a Poem, a Prayer

 

Knowing that the Holy one of Blessing is by my side,
and remembering that all parts of me;
physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, look to align –
I go inward, looking to connect
to those thoughts, feelings and actions that contribute
to my missteps.
I pray that they continue to reveal themselves. 

Hakadosh Barukh Hu –
Show me my heart’s Joy,
show me where my good and evil reside.
Bless me to do the work, to stay connected.
Guide me to the riches of my Soul’s yearnings!

About Todd Greenberg

A Jew by birth, a seeker for 60 years. Having realized that all my previous studies and searching brought me back to Judaism as the foundation for my Spiritual practice and my connection to Hashem. Life's love and all that has been challenged in me has been inspirational over the last year to write poetry. Thank you for the opportunity to share what is in my heart and mind.

Join Us for a Meaningful Humanistic Yom Kippur Celebration!

Humanistic Judaism considers Yom Kippur to be the culmination of the self-analysis that was initiated on Rosh Hashanah. We are offered the opportunity to ask forgiveness from ourselves as well as from those we have wronged, and we vow to be active, involved, caring people in the coming year.
