Falling through Yom Kippur: Enhancing Prayer by using our Imagination

With Yom Kippur fast approaching, thoughts of becoming a better person, of teshuva (repentance), flash across the minds of even the most cynical among us. The critical question always seems to be the same: How on earth do we get to that higher ground?

Here’s a link to a blog post of mine on the Times of Israel, where I have copied an account of repentance scribbled into the diary of a freshly religious young man, who is a central character in a manuscript I am currently working on.

I hope you enjoy.
