Yom Kippur: The One Day Holiday: The Five Levels of the Soul

The highlight of Yom Kippur in Temple times was the High Priest’s service in the “Holy of Holies.” What does this holiest day of the year mean to us today even in diaspora?

deal with God Especially poignant for me this year. After extensive research for years, I have finally obtained proof that my family in Sicily was killed by the spanish inquisiton in palermo Sicily for just being jewish. Maternal and Paternal family were burned (about 40 people)at the stake or hung.My maternal family,some of which I guess escaped that ordeal were killed at Treblinka during WW2. I also have their names and serial numbers and dates of death. I have names, dates, places from the spanish inquisition list kept by vatican archives.
So why did God allow this....and why am I the only one in my family who needed to find out...and are now doing teshuvah for all of them.
Indeed, so long ago, is now. I will help them. I will try to imagine how they must have heard Kol Nidre and wondered why they were under persecution. I hope they are all there with me later today as I will have the honor to represent them in this lifetime.So God.. I will forgive you...if you forgive us. Reply
