(Who You Lookin' At?!)
We Hungarians are a funny bunch. Ever since I was a little boy Erev Yom Kippur was the biggest day of the year. At least Kaporos was. Missing early morning Kaporos was the crime of the century, even as young as 9 years old. I even have pictures of me right next to the old Bobover Rov while he was having his Kaporoh shechted years ago. The same goes for me now; not doing Kaporos while it's still dark outside is like not eating matzoh on Pesach.
UPDATE LEIL 13 TISHREI
I know I had more to say about this topic, and that it was a lead-in to something more interesting, I just can't remember now, 2 days later and all. Maybe it'll come to me some other time. I remember now! I meant to wish you all a very inspirational Yom Kippur, aka YumeKudesh, and that Hashem grant you all your (permitted) hearts' desires. May it be a year of "health and wealth and time to enjoy them," a year of peace and brotherhood, a year of Torah and Chassidus for all Jews.
