Inscribe Yourself in the Book of Life ✡ “An Atonement for You” – ISRAEL365

For on that day shall the Kohen make an atonement for you, to cleanse you, that ye may be clean from all your sins before Hashem.

כִּי בַיּוֹם הַזֶּה יְכַפֵּר עֲלֵיכֶם לְטַהֵר אֶתְכֶם מִכֹּל חַטֹּאתֵיכֶם לִפְנֵי יְהוָה תִּטְהָרוּ

ויקרא טז:ל

kee va-YOM ha-ZEH y’-kha-PAYR a-lay-KHEM l’-ta-HAYR et-KHEM mi-KOL
kha-to-tay-KHEM lif-NAY a-do-NAI tit-HA-ru

Today’s Israel Inspiration

Today’s verse is the Biblical source for the holiest day in the entire Jewish year: Yom Kippur. In the times when the Holy Temple stood in Jerusalem, the Yom Kippur service was the most intricate, requiring the High Priest (Kohen) to cleanse himself more than half a dozen times throughout the day, while the people fasted and prayed his service would be accepted by God. Though we are not fortunate enough to have the Temple and the many duties the High Priest would perform, we remind ourselves of his important work throughout the day’s prayers, thereby emulating the holy service. On Yom Kippur, our focus is to plead with God to forgive the iniquities carried out by the Jewish nation, and eternally inscribe us in the Book of Life, and not the formidable Book of Death. In the Yom Kippur liturgy, we call out in unison that repentance, prayer, and charity are the keys to removing any evil decrees that are upon us thereby ensuring we will be given a year of health and happiness.

For a great year ahead, we must pray with all our might and ask God to inscribe and seal us with favorable judgment.

How Can Hebrew Teach Us About Sin?

While many might know that Yom Kippur is the holiday of atonement for sins, they might not be aware that the Hebrew language reveals incredible clues as to the nature of sin as defined by God.

How to Blow a Shofar on Yom HaTeruah

You shall proclaim with the shofar blasts, in the seventh month, on the tenth of the month; on the Day of Atonement, you shall sound the shofar throughout your land. (Leviticus 25:9)
