Be Real!


We can be real with ourselves. With Hashem.

On Yom Kippur, a day when we’re being real, we’re able to say, “We are Your beloved and You are ours.”

That’s the one truth.  It’s because we’re being real that we can talk that way, to be open.

The imperfections don’t get in the way. Be ready to admit to yourself, “No, you’re not a perfect human being. Yes, you’ve got a lot to work on.  It’s okay.”

We’re all just a bunch of broken vessels hopping around the world trying to make ourselves whole. On Yom Kippur, we admit it to Hashem.

He’s there listening, all-knowing, and all-accepting.

Be real with Him.
