Hacham Yishak Yosef in Yalkut Yosef Moadim Page 74 (or Siman 604, Seif 6 in the Kisur version), says that women are obligated to eat Erev Yom Kippur, because the Pasuk brings the commandment in the form of a negative commandment, i.e. Veinitem.

A person who eats on Yom Kipour does not make kiddush and have two challah rolls, plus meat and fish just as any other yom tov. The reason being that they should be eating as little as possible - just enough to keep alive & healthy. However, they do say יַעֲלֶה וְיָבֹא if they ate enough bread - as well as רְצֵה if it's also Shabbat. Enough bread: 27 ...

Rabbi Nebenzahl mentions this: על כל התהליך הזה אפשר למשול משל: שידוך בין איש לאישה. חודש אלול מסמל את תקופת השידוך הראשונה בה מכירים אחד את השני. ראש השנה הוא יום הקידושין בו הקב"ה מקדש את כנסת ישראל וכנסת ישראל מכריזה עליו למלך. יום כיפור הוא יום הנישואין, " 'יום חתונתו' זה מתן תורה" (תענית כו:) יום בו ניתנו למשה רבנו הלוחות האחרונות. השמחה הגדולה ...

This article by Rav Yona Ziskind says: Rav Shimshon Pincus writes that the sholosh regolim (the three festivals), Pesach, Shavuos and Succos, are the developmental stages of the Jewish nation. Pesach is the birth of the nation, Shavuos is the bar-mitzvah of the nation and Succos is the chasunah (marriage) of the nation. I have not yet located ...

The question of Kiddush on Yom Kippur is discussed first in the Gemara Eiruvin The Shibolei Haleket (312) writes that because one does not normally eat on Yom Kippur, the Sages never required mention of the holiday in kiddush or even bentching. In fact, making Kiddush would be improper because one might see kiddush being made and think that it should be ...

Sealed can mean very hard to change, not impossible to change. In addition, the exact manifestation of the decree can be changed. For example, someone who was decreed to die can become impoverished instead, as עני חשוב כמת - a pauper is considered like a dead person. Or, alternatively, someone decreed to get great wealth may receive it in spiritual terms ...

The Shar HaKollel writes that there is no Kiddush on Yom Kippur, not on wine and not on bread, nor is there Lechem Mishne (taking two whole loaves for HaMotzi), because the Chachamim did not establish those things on Yom Kippur.

It's complicated, but one suggestion among many: It could be determined on Rosh Hashana that someone will have "a difficult year." However, their daily prayers can affect just how difficult it will prove to be; how well they'll tolerate (and learn and grow from) that difficulty, and in what ways that difficulty will play out. (Remind me please, there's a ...

Halachapedia suggests: A person who is a Choleh SheEin Bo skana is permissible to take medicine on Yom Kippur if it doesn’t have a good taste. If one needs to have it with liquid one should have mouthwash. The footnote for the above links to rav Schachter's Halachot of Yamim Nora'im. (I can't access that in my current browser. My own opinion on the above ...

This statement is inaccurate: On Tisha b'Av and Yom Kippur, we are not supposed to lave our hands. As we learn in the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch in סימן קכד - הלכות תשעה באב laving hands and getting wet in general is not a problem, if not done for pleasure: וְאֵינָהּ אֲסוּרָה רַק רְחִיצָה שֶׁל תַּעֲנוּג. אֲבָל שֶׁלֹּא לְתַעֲנוּג, מֻתָּר. וְלָכֵן רוֹחֵץ ...
