Yom Kippur

First of all, I wish everyone a Happy, Healthy New Year with only good things for the Jewish People. Second, I wish everyone a meaningful and easy fast for Yom Kippur.

Yom Kippur is known as the day of Atonement, where we try to figure out what we've done wrong and do right for the next year. It is clear from this last weeks Torah portion Haazinu that if we aggravate G-d with false gods, he will aggravate us with a non-people. We see this happening today, especially recently this past Saturday in Haifa with 19 murders. 3 children are part of that total. One family, three generations were effected. It is time to Return to G-d and the Torah. It's time to do Tshuva (return). Pick one mitzvah for the year. Do it consistantly. The only way to have Moshiach come and stop the insanity is for us to do our bit.

These non-existant Arabs calling themselves "Palestinians" are only a wake up call from G-d. Nothing more. They only have as much power as we give them by not doing what G-d wants us to do. We need to be aware of what we do and what we have to improve on. Start this Yom Kippur.

May we be all signed in the Book of Life.
