Yom Kippur 2007: "Good Advice"

Dear Stanley,

Thank you for your Yom Kippur e-card with the printed sentiment, "Wishing you an easy fast."

Many of us have been using this greeting for as long as I can remember.  We all wish for an easy fast on Yom Kippur.  We recall the difficulty of not eating or drinking for twenty-four hours, especially we coffee addicts.

But your additional, special greeting was both a surprise and a challenge: "Enjoy your fast." Enjoy!  This was the first time anyone made this suggestion to me. What a great idea. Excellent advice.  I accepted the challenge to enjoy my fast this year.
