Should I Fast This Yom Kippur?


Hi! For context, I’m a 17 year old girl. I am currently a year into eating disorder recovery and I want to know if I would be okay to skip out on the fast because of it



  1. I am so sorry to hear that you are currently going through such a difficult time. Please accept my Bracha that Hashem send you a Refuah Shelaymah – a complete and speedy recovery.

    In any event, you will see this only after Yom Kippur, but I am not able to answer your question. It requires the input of your doctor, and if he is not religious, a local Rabbi who can speak with your doctor to ascertain exactly what needs to be done.

    Best wishes from the Team
