A message for Yom Kippur
Yom Kippur, the most sacred and solemn day of the Jewish year, brings the Days of Repentance to a close.
It is an opportunity for all faiths to reflect on individual conduct over the past year and seek ways to do more, above all by intensifying efforts to help the less fortunate and needy in the world. This requires political will and political action from the richer nations as well as individual charity at a time when the global economic crisis puts great disproportionate pressure on the poorest in the world's societies.
