It is traditional for Jewish parents to bless their children on Erev Yom Kippur. There is a standard blessing written in most prayer books for this time of year, and this prayer is uniquely powerful because of the holiness of the day. This prayer was composed for parents with disabled and special children, who would like to say a blessing that is more directly relevant for their child, speaking to their limitations and well as their life circumstance, as well as the uniqueness of their soul.
