The meal before the Yom Kippur fast, Ministry for Foreign Affairs, State of Israel.

The Humanitarian Purnoe
Haftara for - Yorn Kippur .11,1url,

From the Yom Kippur Monring Haftara, Isaiah 58:5-14

Is such the fast I desire,

A day for men to starve their bodies?
Is it bowing the head like a bulrush

and lying in sackcloth and ashes?
Do you call that a fast,
A day when the Lord is favorable?
No, this is the fastl desire:
To unlock fetters of wickedness,
And untie the cords of the yoke
To let the oppressed go free;
To break off every yoke.
It is to share your bread with the hungry,
And to take the wretched poor into your home;
When you see the naked, to clothe him,
And not to ignore your own kin.
Then shall your light burst through like the dawn
And your healing spring up quickly;

Your Vindicator shall march before you,
The Presence of the Lord shall be your rear
Then, when you call, The Lord will answer;
When you cry, He will say: Here I am.
If you banish the yoke from your midst,
The menacing hand, and evil speech,
You shall be like a watered garden,
Like a spring whose waters do not fail.
And you offer your compassion to the hungry
And satisfy the famished creature —
Then shall your light shine in darkness,
And your gloom shall be like noonday.
The Lord will guide you always;
He will slake your thirst in drought
And give strength to your bones.

Men front your midst shall rebuild ancient ruins,
You shall restore foundations laid long ago.
And you shall be called
"Repairer of fallen walls,
Restorer of lanes for habitation."
If you refrain from trampling the sabbath,
From pursuing your affairs on My holy day;
If you call the sabbath "delight,"
The Lord's holy day "honored";
And if you honor it and go not your ways
Nor look to your affairs, nor strike bargains —
Then you can seek the favor of the Lord.
I will set you astride the heights of the earth,
And let you enjoy the heritage of your father
Jacob —
For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.
