We've just finished a very intense 40 day period of introspection, reflection, t'shuva, repentance.  The last ten days of it included a two-day Holiday, with extra-long prayers, and it culminated with a twenty-five hour fast, Sabbath restrictions and even more prayers.  Those prayers even listed a great variety of our possible sins, just in case we had blanked them from our minds.

Now, what is next?

Is it back to our everyday business, or will there be some improvement?  Many people start building their succot immediately after Yom Kippur, to make sure that the first thing on their "cleaned slate" will be a mitzvah.

Gmar Chatima Tova, Shabbat Shalom and Chag Sameach!
