Shelter-in-Place Journal, Day 195

I’m going to write today’s entry early so I can be off social media well before Yom Kippur starts.

In a normal year, my goal would be turning off the computer for Yom Kippur, but this year, the computer needs to stay on so we can watch and participate in services. Kol Nidre was pre-recorded but won’t be streamed until the right time; services tomorrow (except for the “base” morning service) will all be on Zoom.

It will be different – perhaps not as different as taking a tour of Berlin on Yom Kippur, but definitely not the usual experience. Fasting will be about the same, I guess!

May you be inscribed and sealed for a good year.
