How to Fast

One of my favorite parts of Yom Kippur (there are oh so many more) is watching kids in synagogue trying to fast for the first time. These kids are either bar mitzvah age and are attempting to fast for the full day or they are 9-10 year olds trying to “practice” for half the day.

What’s so great about watching them is that they act like they’ve never gone three hours without eating. I remember leading a kids service at my synagogue a couple of years back on Yom Kippur.
