The holiday lasts just more than 24 hours ? stretching from dusk Wednesday to nightfall today ? and involves abstinence from food and drink. ?The concept behind the fasting is to live in an austere manner for 25 hours,? said Rabbi Simcha Backman of the Chabad Jewish Center of Glendale, explaining that Jews ?refrain from physical needs? on Yom Kippur, a process that allows them to focus on spirituality.

Jewish residents sat in prayer all day Thursday for their most sacred holy day, Yom Kippur. "Yom Kippur is important because you make decisions for the upcoming year," said Rega Gerrish, a local resident and attendee of Temple Sinai's services who compared the decisions to a New Year's resolution. "You make promises to yourself and to God." Jews are forbidden to work and must fast on this Day of Atonement, in order to completely focus on prayer without thinking of other concerns.

In the Nov. 1 issue of the Glendale News-Press' Community Forum, Peter N. Harrison of La Crescenta wrote to agree with a letter writer questioning why the paper didn't run more on Oktoberfest or a story about Yom Kippur on Yom Kippur but did write about Catholicos Aram I and the Armenian Genocide. Catholicos Aram I is one of the most popular Armenians living today. He came from his country to America to promote the Christian religion. For one day he was on the cover page.

I am a sucker for free food. And this past weekend was very tasty. I went to three places where the opportunity for free food presented itself. I sometimes joke that the only reason I go to the events I am invited to is because of the free food. The first event I photographed was the Ramadan potluck held at the La Cañada Community Center on Friday night hosted by the Islamic Congregation of La Cañada Flintridge. The place was packed, and so was the food table. Everything from traditional dishes to In-N-Out burgers was served.

Question: Wal-Mart is test-marketing biblical action figures — Jesus, Moses, Mary, Noah, David and Samson among them. And Target will do the same on its website. There is at least some concern, however, among consumers — parents — that such figures may prompt children to equate biblical heroes and heroines with secular figures. And while some may see the action figures as a learning tool, others may see them as gag gifts. What do you think of the idea of biblical action figures?
