THE PURPOSE OF YOM KIPPUR

As we know, Yom Kippur starts this year on Friday night, October 7, 2011.

The following story illustrates why we remember the reason we observe this solemn time.

 

The story is told of a house painter who deeply regretted stealing from his clients by diluting the paint, but charging full price.  He poured out his heart on Yom Kippur hoping for Divine direction, after which he heard a voice from Heaven saying:

“Repaint, repaint … and thin no more!”
