I am not fasting for Yom Kippur due to my chronic illness (funny story, I mentioned the possibility of Yom Kippur fasting once to my doctor, and she started muttering about obviously suicidal patients), and this year, Mom’s joining me in not-fasting for the first time due to recuperating from the lung disease, and I would love it if anyone has any thoughts as to other ways the two of us can observe Yom Kippur without fasting, aside from the contemplation and seeking to right wrongs, and donating to the food bank, especially since Mom is still too ill to attend the longer service.

Also, I hope all of you who are fasting have a quick and easy fast.

I'm not fasting because I get so nauseous, so I'm donating the value of my meals to charity as well.

Cans of tuna fish were on sale for 77 cents, so we bought All The Tuna for charity, among other things.

Maybe a little late to suggest it. But I've suggested to another friend to give up one kind of food instead of fasting. Such as not eating your favorite junk food, or something like that.

I used to do that. I kept myself to really boring foods during Yom Kippur for years.
