The rabbis will also answer questions pertaining to fasting itself: What is the significance of fasting? Isn’t it harder to concentrate in prayer when one is fasting? Why is it the custom to wear a white Kittel? Why aren’t the heavenly accusers allowed to accuse the Jews on this day?
During the broadcast, the rabbis will also discuss the Jewish way of repentance: What are the stages of repentance? What should one do when one has a relative who is a sinner; how can one help him to repent? How is it possible to repent and wipe out one’s sin when there are sins that leave an impression and cause irreparable harm?
