Good Jew, Bad Jew

Yep, another scarf.

Also, I worked today (and wrote a blog post after services last night, obviously), which is a big no-no on Yom Kippur. I did fast starting last night, however, other than taking some hot tea on my morning commute because I thought I'd be dangerously sleepy otherwise — and even with the caffeine, I was still drowsy. Oddly, I didn't feel especially hungry most of the day, but I did find it increasingly difficult to focus on my work as the afternoon wore on. I am very grateful to have access to good food in my everyday life, and an experience like this provides a tangible example of why it's so important for schools to provide free meals to children who might not receive adequate nutrition at home.
