Mare Winningham spoke with Ron Kaplan of the New Jersey Jewish News last week, and said she ” . . . was still on a high from davening and fasting the day before.
“You’re catching me at a good time, because I’ve done no wrong; I’m clean,” she said. “We had an amazing Yom Kippur. My fast was easy and I got a lot out of the service. “This is my sixth Yom Kippur. It’s always good for me as a Jew to remind myself, ‘Look how far you’ve come; look what you’re doing.’” Winningham, 49, described herself as “a devoted member” of her Hollywood synagogue. “Every Shabbos we have a beautiful service and then a class afterward, which is my favorite part of the week.”
We got high from fasting too. Call us, Mare!
