I am reading a book about a book club, populated by women more intent on eating, dishing out on each other and talking about sex than actually discussing books. The premise is an excuse for some thrilling adventures on the part of the first person voice narrator, and for dropping the titles of some high-brow tomes.
Jews all over the world atone for the sins of the past year and ask God for forgiveness. Whilst I am not a believer, I have always cherished the idea of spending 24 hours thinking back about the wrongs we committed, the people we hurt over the past 12 months and asking for forgiveness. With the Jewish new year just begun, it’s a way to start with a clean slate.
