Although I am a Gentile I just took two glasses of water because Yom Kippur begins in about one hour and I will not be eating any food or even drinking any water or other liquid until about 8 pm tomorrow evening. The last ten days are known as the "ten days of awe" between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. I've been fasting on this day for about forty years and although I am not yet Jewish........ it sure seems as if my philosophy of life has been greatly improved due to making at least a feeble effort to show respect for the High Holy Days of Judaism. My search to notice hidden meaning in Yom Kippur has played a huge role in my becoming convinced of eventual universal salvation........ I am curious how many people on this forum are interested in possible hidden meaning in the Jewish Holy Days?
