5 Stages Of The Yom Kippur Fast, Illustrated By Amy Schumer
Who better to explain it than the Moses of the comedy world?
The Yom Kippur fast is a sneaky one. Rosh Hashanah was only 10 short days ago—just last week we were all blissfully enjoying endless amounts of challah, consuming more jars of honey than a drunk Winnie the Pooh. But, like a hangover you have to endure in your 10 am lecture Friday morning after a Thursday night out, we all knew this was coming: the 25-hour Yom Kippur fast.
Yes, 25 hours — not 24, because we, the Jewish people, weren't satisfied with the limits of a "normal" day, and thus, the extra hour nonsense. Talk about going above and beyond.
If you're looking for someone who feels your pain, I'm sure you have several friends enduring the same gnawing hunger. However, if you need a greater sense of communal misery during this hangry time, we turn to the only woman who can provide a voice of sanity and reason in crises like these: Amy Schumer.
