The rituals of Yom Kippur – fasting, wearing white, refraining from acts of pleasure, reciting prayers of confession, function as an annual dress rehearsal for death. In the field of psychology, “life review” is a tool used to promote reflection on one’s past in order to make peace with the present. Using your own life review as a reflection on mortality ahead of the annual dress rehearsal for death, this template is designed to help you prepare for entering the new year.
