“Break(fast)” on Yom Kippur


More than ten years back, I was hanging up some flyers for Jeff Seidel’s Student Information Center in Jerusalem’s Jewish Quarter of the Old City. On the flyer it said that a BREAK – FAST is going to take place after Yom Kippur is over. 

I was near the Kotel (Western Wall) Plaza when I hung the last flyers on the walls of AISH and Yeshivat HaKotel. Suddenly an older Chassid passed by, read one of the flyers and tore it apart. In Hebrew he said to me that I should be ashamed of myself. 

People who are not too familiar with English vocabulary don’t necessarily read “Break – Fast” but BREAKFAST.
