An open Erev Yom Kippur letter to my dear colleagues in Russia and Ukraine
September 22, 2023

May you have an easy and meaningful Yom Kippur and may you experience G-d’s infinite grace in every facet of this year. It’s a time of annual introspection, between the high holy days Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur, and I am reflecting on the people who shined brightly in 5783 and to whom G-d will undoubtedly look to when blessing Am Yisroel with a super 5784, and it’s you who comes to mind.
