The King Is In The Restaurant

When we say our Al Cheits, we mention that we sinned via food and drink. There's a fast day between Rosh and Shanah and Yom Kippur- which is, of course, itself a fast day. Between Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur one law that many take on to be more careful about concerns the bread that they eat. These and other factors point to the fact that our need to eat and how we handle it is very relevant to our teshuva process. As Rav Tzadok HaKohein pointed out (as cited in Eating As Tikkun) it is no coincidence that the first mis-step that humans ever made was related to food. G-d should bless us to succeed as we try to work on the way we eat, which reflects so much on where we are at as humans.
