Itâ€™s Erev Yom Kippur, so everyone get eating! Just as there is a commandment to fast on Yom Kippur, there is alsoÂ a mitzvah to eat the day before. Some opinions even say that one should try and eat all day long by keeping a sucking candy in your mouth or some other type of snack.
While preparing for the concluding meal (seudah hamafseket) munch on as much as possible andÂ while your preparing your white clothing, blessing your children, diving into the mikvah and doing all the other customary things before Yom Kippur, donâ€™t forget to have a bite to eat.
What a nice commandment.
Pronounced: MITZ-vuh or meetz-VAH, Origin: Hebrew, commandment, also used to mean good deed.
