Yom Kippur September 28, 2017

The new Mishkan HaNefesh mahzor offers us a variety of Torah and Haftarah portions for both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. At Beth Hillel, we have begun to rotate through the various options from year to year. On Yom Kippur afternoon this year, our Torah text will be Genesis 50, the story of Jacob’s and Joseph’s deaths. This is an interesting passage for Yom Kippur, a day on which we are contemplating our own mortality and the meaning of our lives. In addition, the text has a great deal to teach about forgiveness and shalom bayit, making peace within the family. If the children of Jacob were able to heal the terrible emotional wounds that they wrought upon one another, surely we can too. “For sins between people and God, the Day of Atonement atones, but for sins between one person and the next, the Day of Atonement does not atone until they have made peace with one another.” It’s not too late…. Gamar Hatimah Tovah, May you be sealed for good, in the Book of Life.
