Pre-Yamim Noraim 5783 Megathread

This is a megathread for the Yamim Noraim (trans. Days of Awe: Rosh Hashana & Yom Kippur). There will also be further megathreads to include the other seasonal holidays as they come, but for now we’ll just focus on the big two to reduce confusion.

This is NOT in any way meant to limit the number of RH or YK-related posts standing alone on the sub, but rather provide a central location for questions, comments, and advice as we approach the the High Holidays in the world of the ‘new normal.’ Some folks still aren’t comfortable being in closed spaces with others, at least without vaccines and/or masks, and synagogues and communities the world over are still grappling with providing services and services without excluding anyone for whatever reason.

However, whatever your situation, it doesn’t mean you’ll be alone for this most meditative time of our year. Ask questions and share ideas here to help your fellow Jews from one piece of the multiverse to another close 5782 and enter 5783 with as much mindful community as possible.

Note: Questions about fasting as they pertain to your health status, including taking certain medications, should be directed first to your doctor and then to your rabbi (or maybe ask them simultaneously, but the doctor ought to be consulted one way or the other). Please do not ask these questions here. On Reddit, no one knows who’s a cat and who’s a rabbi. Even if you’re a cat who learns with a rabbi.

Some resources to introduce Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement:

These links were from a quick consultation with Rav Google (and just knowing some good resources). There are many, many resources out there. If you have any to add to this list, please share below.

And of course, the havura of Reddit is here for you. You are not alone. We are all in this together, and will be together again next year, in Jerusalem.
