Good Yontiff!

The holiday had me thinking of this comic by Vanessa Davis on Yom Kippur that gets at the importance of letting things go. (Tablet Magazine has several more pieces by Davis). And the subject line for this post came via another comic by Davis, Jewish Chops (see above) with story by Harvey Pekar.
