Yom Kippur info. A Git Gebencht Yur! Have an Easy fast!

We at עול"ם - The Jewish Crohn's & Colitis Support Group (JCCSG) would like to wish you and your family again, a good and sweet, and prosperous year. A year filled with Good health, well-being, happiness, success, Nachas, Parnasah and all you need. May we all be inscribed and sealed in the Book of Life.

As a reminder, please discuss with your Rabbe/Rav/Dayan ANDDoctor regarding your fasting, taking your medications, and/or about taking IV (Intravenous) fluids.
