Yom Kippur                                                                    pAGE 2

                       . D’VAR TORAH ,

Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, is the anniversary of the day moshe
Yom Kippur
brought down from mount Sinai the second set of Ten Commandments. This
signified that the Almighty forgave the Jewish people for the transgression of
the Golden Calf. For all times this day was decreed to be a day of forgiveness
for our mistakes. However, this refers to transgressions against the Almighty.
Transgressions against our fellow human being require us to correct our
mistakes and seek forgiveness. if one took from another person, it is not enough
to regret and ask the Almighty for forgiveness; first, one must return what was
taken and ask for forgiveness from the person and then ask for forgiveness from
the Almighty.

In the prayer service we say the Viduy, a confession, and the Al Chet, a list
of transgressions between man and God and between man and man. it is
interesting to note two things. First, the transgressions are listed in alphabetical
order (in Hebrew). This not only makes a comprehensive list, but gives a
framework to include whatever transgression you wish to include under the
proper letter.

Secondly, the Viduy and Al Chet are stated in the plural. This teaches us that
we are one people and that we are responsible for each other. Even if we did
not commit a particular offense, we carry a certain measure of responsibility
for those who transgressed --especially if we could have prevented the
transgression.

The Rambam, Maimonides, teaches that each individual’s life is always on a
balance -- like the old-time scales where the weights were put on one side and
the produce on the other side -- and that each of us should think before doing an
action that this transgression or that this mitzvah (commandment) could tip the
scales.

Likewise, Rambam teaches that each community, each country and ultimately the
world is judged in the same manner. Thus, an individual should not only think
that his transgression or fulfillment of a mitzvah tips the scale for him alone, but
may very well tip the scale for all of mankind!

On Yom Kippur we read the Book of Jonah. The lesson from the story is that God
readily accepts the repentance of anyone who sincerely desires to do Teshuva,
to return to the Almighty and to the path of the Torah -- just as He did with the
people of Ninveh.
