A word from the Rabbi

Dear Friends,

With less then 48 hours to go, we are now standing towards the conclusion of the Ten Days of Teshuva-Repentance – and are approaching the holiest day of the year – Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.

 

Yom Kippur is the day on which we encounter, and come face to face with our soul on the deepest level. It is a day on which the essence of the Jewish Soul (that which makes a Jew Jewish) surfaces and the essential unbreakable bond between the Jew and G-d is most revealed.
It is the one (and only) day on which, in Temple times, the High Priest entered the Holy of Holies.
It is the day on which a Jew enters the “Holy of Holies” of his/her Soul, revealing the quintessential spark of his or her Jewishness that can never be severed.

No matter what we have or have not done, we are G-d’s children, and thus, G-d Almighty, in His infinite love for us, gives us this special day of Divine Foregiveness and Atonement. We are given the chance to wipe the slate “clean” and start all over again.
We are told that Yom Kippur atones for sins between Man and G-d, if we sincerely regret them and resolve to be better.
However, sins between Man and Man, Yom Kippur only atones if we seek foregiveness from our fellow man.
It is appropriate at this time, as we seek G-d’s foregiveness, that we also seek forgiveness from  those we may have wronged.
 
We thus ask foregiveness from anyone of you that we may have offended or hurt.

 

Please accept our warmest wishes that you and yours and all the People of Israel be inscribed and sealed for a good year, a year of light and joy, peace and prosperity, good health and happy tidings.

 

May G-d Almighty fulfill all our hopes and prayers and may this year bring true redemption to the entire world.

 

Wishing you all an easy fast.
 
With heartfelt wishes,

 

Rabbi Yacov and Hindy Borenstein and family.
