Israel: Yom Kippur

On the eve of the Jewish day of Atonement – Yom Kippur, we wish our Jewish readers a g'mar chatima tova and an easy fast.

BTW, I just realized that ‘Yom Kippur‘ is very similar to our Arabic words ‘Yom Kapper‘, both of which means the “Great Day.”

Day after day, I believe that “we have more in common than you think“.


  • Thanks, Haitham – and Ramadan mubarak for you and your family as well.

    Best wishes,

  • Jeanie Laurence

    Of course we have a lot in common,don’t we have the same Father, Abraham. Love Ye one another.
    I love you, Jeanie
