Atonement

2013

Performance

approximately 25 hours

 

Yom Kippur, the holiest day in the Jewish calendar, begins at sundown September 13th and ends and sundown September 14th. Traditionally, it is believed that God writes one’s fate for the year in the Book of Life and on Yom Kippur, that book is closed with God’s final verdict. Thus Jews spend the day confessing and atoning for their sins, in addition to refraining from eating, drinking, bathing, wearing leather, engaging in sexual relations, and anointing one’s self with fragrance or lotion. It is believed that by denying the body comfort, one denies the soul comfort and is truly able to understand pain and reflect on the pain caused to others.
After participating in the abstention rituals of Yom Kippur, I will confess my sins for the year and beg forgiveness for them from the universe. At sundown, I will purify myself in a homemade Mikveh (a body of “collected water” used in ritual purification) and break my fast with a traditional Jewish feast.
