Wednesday is typically recipe day here on the blog. But I thought it was perhaps a bit sacrilege to share something food-related and yummy on Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement, when I and fellow Jews are spending the day worshipping and fasting for repentance.

So while we’ll be back to our regularly-scheduled recipe post next Wednesday, today I thought I’d share a more appropriate post from about three years ago, when our family was honored and blessed to participate in writing a new Torah. The experience was profound, spiritual and even a little mystical, and remains a memorable occasion for our family.

Read about it in “Doing A Mitzvah.” And if you’re observing the holiday today, I wish you a meaningful day and an easy fast. May you be inscribed in the Book of Life — with love, happiness and good health.
