Yom Kippur, the day of atonement, involves standing before God completely vulnerable with all your faults. Rabbi Janet Madden recalls her most powerful Yom Kippur just five weeks before her mother’s death. During the Yizkor service, honoring the deceased, she realized she was to step into the role of the matriarch in her family. Edit credit: Sean Collins
