Fasting on Yom Kippur

Angela Kunkel
Angela Renee Kunkel



  Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), the fast day on the 10th of Tishrei is devoted to individual and communal repentance (teshuvah; literally, “returning”). Yom Kippur is the climax of the forty day period of self-examination that begins with a month of spiritual preparation during Elul and intensifies on Rosh Hashanah and the remainder of the Ten Days of Repentance.

“It is to be a statute to you forever, that in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, you are to afflict your souls, and do no kind of work—both the native-born and the outsider dwelling among you. For on this day atonement will be made for you, to cleanse you. From all your sins you will be clean before Adonai. It is a Shabbat of solemn rest to you, you are to afflict your souls. It is a statute forever.”
~Leviticus 16:28-30
  Fasting on Yom Kippur is supposed to make us focus on our souls rather than on our bodies. However, around lunch time, why is it that we are so hungry that for the rest of the day all we can think about is food? How is it that we are to become more spiritual when our stomachs just keep growling?
