COVER STORY—In the midst of the Jewish High Holidays, ReadTheSpirit Editor David Crumm and author Benjamin Pratt reflect on the urgent calls to action voiced in the midst of hurricane relief efforts. During both Yom Kippur and hurricanes, there are inspiring calls for each of us to reach out and repair our broken world. Please, enjoy this column written by Crumm and Pratt and share it with friends, this week.

Holiday columnist Stephanie Fenton also marks Yom Kippur in a feature story with an added bonus—a video of the Kol Nidre music played by Pablo Casals.
