Yossi Tells Us About Yim Kippur

Tamar

My name is Yossi. I’m twelve years old and I’m in seventh grade. I live in Eretz Yisrael. I love Yamim Tovim very much. There’s something special about them that ordinary days don’t have. I love the special mitzvos and tefillos and minhagim. I want to share with you the special emotions that take hold of me when Yom Kippur is coming — the holiest day of the year.

 

Amazing You: Have a Heart

Tzivia E. Adler

Thump. Can you feel your heartbeat? After running, can you hear your pulse pounding in your ears? Every heartbeat pumps blood through your body. Hearts are also a symbol of emotions. That’s why we say in Shema, “V’hayu hadevarim ha’eileh … al levavecha” - we are supposed to feel strongly about the mitzvos.
