Get up for Yom Kippur

“Get up… I gave you 10 days for repentance, for turning over a new leaf in the Book of Life.

Now you will have 50 weeks to be renewed.

Even if you don’t have faith in yourself, I have faith in you.

Get up off­ the floor and get up quickly. Falling isn’t the worst sin.

Staying on the floor is.”

The words above are the last part of a prayer meditation from Makhzor Tikunay Nefashot: a spiritual renewal high holiday prayerbook I edited in 1999.
