    Whether you are cooking for the pre-fast meal or sitting in the office; whether Yom Kippur is a serious matter for you or less—you are welcome to turn on Zoom, relax with a drink in hand and dive into the inspiration of music, singing and conversation.

    Alicia Jo Rabins and Sonya Sanford will talk, sing and read poetry around Yom Kippur during these confusing times, about closeness and distances, self-acceptance and nourishment of body and mind.
