On Yom Kippur, as his congregants at B'nai David Judea were fasting and praying for the year ahead, Rabbi Yosef Kanefsky asked them to think not about themselves, but about people being killed in Darfur, Sudan. "I asked people to make a contribution to one of the relief organizations in the amount of what they would have eaten themselves were in not Yom Kippur," Kanefsky said. "Sudan is calling to us for immediate attention."
