Ownership of Yom Kippur:  a personal journey

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/yom_kippur/article/ownership_of_yom_kippur_a_personal_journey_20100914

As a young Jewish boy in 1960s Glasgow, Scotland, I accompanied my father and my two elder brothers every Yom Kippur to the shul he had founded. We always sat in the first row, and to this day I still feel the awesome intensity of prayer, the deep anguish of my father’s generation as they dwelt on their sins and looked for redemption.
