A shiur by Rabbi Zalman Baruch Melamed regarding the high holidays
  • 5. Tzom Gedalia
    On the third of Tishrei, Gedalia b. Aĥikam was killed. This extinguished the last ember of Jewish sovereignty in Eretz Yisrael and realized the full measure of exile. This is why the prophets instituted a fast day.
  • Forgiveness
    A Must Watch Story Before Yom Kippur about how forgiveness brings Hasem to forgive us.
  • It's not about me
    Why don't we ask forgiveness for our personal sins on Rosh Hashana if it is the Day of Judgment?
  • The Secret of Yom Kippur
    Why does Yom Kippur atone for Israel's sins? The secret is rooted in the "covenant of love" between G-d and His people Israel...
  • The Yom Kippur Time Tunnel
    Why is it important that atonement and repentance remain outside the framework of time?And we may be like angels on the Day of Atonement, but the rest of the year, we are simply flesh and blood, so how are our sins of the year atoned for?
  • Measuring the Amount One Can Eat/Drink
    I will need to drink on Yom Kippur in shiurim (small amounts at a time to lower the violation). Should I prepare the portions of liquid beforehand in order to not have to measure on Yom Kippur?
  • Teshuva: Don't Expect a One-Shot Deal
    Yom Kippur is less than a week away, and for many of us, its approach is cause for unease and disquiet. Precisely during this period of the holy High Holidays, poisonous doubts creep into our thoughts and hearts: "Last year I asked forgiveness for my sins and errors; I prayed from the depth of my heart; I promised myself I would not fall into the same traps – and behold, it didn't work! So what's the point of all my teshuva [commitment to return to one's true inner self]? Will anything be different this Yom Kippur than last time or the time before?"
