    ?d?var chizuk It states in Mishna Yoma that, ?Yom Kippur atones for transgressions committed against Hashem, but does not atone for transgressions committed bein adam laMakom, against one?s fellow man, unless one has appeased one?s fellow man.? September 25, 2009 Vol. 2 Issue 1 Meforshim explain this mishna to mean that one?s sins will not be forgiven until one asks for - and receives - forgiveness from those he has wronged. What a powerful thought! A person cannot receive the forgiving and cleansing power of Yom Kippur from Hashem unless he clears his slate of transgressions committed against his fellow man!

    Continued from page 1 Let us try to analyze why Hashem?s forgiveness might be dependent on how we treat our fellow man. We have two distinct relationships with Hashem, father/son and master/servant. We give expression to our dual relationship with Hashem when we say Avinu Malkeinu and when we beseech Hashem on Rosh Hashanah, thus: ?Today all human beings stand in judgment. If we are like sons, have mercy on us like a father on a son, and if we are like servants? then our eyes are looking toward you to see Week of Shabbos Shuva Shabbos Parshas Plag: 5:43 PM Candle Lighting: t.a. calendar Sunday, September 27: Erev Yom Kippur - No Sessions Monday, September 28: Yom Kippur - No Sessions Friday, October 2 - Monday October 12: Sukkos Break?No Sessions Tuesday, October 13: Classes Resume our fi final l judgment.? j d t ?

    If one harmed another person, even by merely hurting someone?s feelings with words; Yom Kippur will not atone for the sin unless one fi rst appeases the other party and asks for for- giveness. If the other person does not forgive, one must return a second and a third time, each time bringing three other people along while asking for forgiveness. Although one is obligat- ed to do this all year, one must be particularly vigilant to do this before Yom Kippur in order to be sure to go into Yom Kippur free of sin. Shulchan Aruch w/Mishnah Brurah 606:1 The one who is being asked to forgive should not be cruel in withholding forgiveness because one will be judged ?Mida Kineged Mida? - ?measure for measure?. One who does not act strictly in standing up for his rights will be for- given for all his sins in heaven; and if one does not forgive, he will likewise not be forgiven for his sins. Shulchan Aruch w/Mishnah Brurah 606:1 Hilchos Yom Kippur By: dailyhalacha@aol.com Reprinted with permission. If one has any stolen or misappropriated mon- ey or property, or if one overcharged another Jew, one should be very strict in correcting the sin and returning the money to the other party before Yom Kippur because the sin of ?gezel? - stealing, is a great accuser against a person. As Chazal say: If one has a sack full of sins, who accuses? The sin of ?gezel? accuses fi rst. Shulchan Aruch w/Mishnah Brurah 606:1 The Chofetz Chaim writes that Hashem is will- ing to Judge his children with mercy even if one has done the worst sins, such as Avodah Zorah. However, if the ?accuser? is allowed to present one?s sins, the hand of Hashem is, so to say, forced to deal strictly with us and punish us for our sins. We, ourselves control the ability of the ?accuser? to speak. Inasmuch as we are treated by Hashem ?Mida kineged Mida? - measure for measure, the single sin that permits the ?accuser? to pres- ent all our other sins in heaven is the sin of Continue on page 7 Page 6 Talmudical Academy Of Baltimore

    ?Loshon Hora?. If one speaks slanderously about another Jew, the ?accuser? is permit- ted to speak about him, and he is punished strictly for all his sins. If one refrains from this one sin of Loshon Hora, the accuser is prevented from speaking, and Hashem treats us mercifully despite our other sins. There is therefore nothing more important for one?s self and family before Yom Kip- pur than to do Teshuva on the sin of Loshon Hora, and to undertake to no longer speak or listen to Loshon Hora Continue on page 16 A Fundraiser for the Baltimore City Mounted Police Unit www.talmudicalacademy.org Page 7

    Continued from page 3 ship. Sometime, because of this closeness, some of the natural barriers are broken down and things might be said between father and son which are inappropriate. Yet when a father criticizes a son, the bonds of love are still there. Even though the son may be unhappy after receiving criticism from his father, he at least realizes that it comes from a heart full of love. However, when a person from the outside that intimate father/son circle makes a criticism, even when the comment is the exact one as the father had made, it may be totally inappropriate. Not only will the son be angry, but the father will be furious, too: ?What gives someone the right to say those things about my son!? When that person criticizes the son, it is tantamount to criticizing the father; that is how personal it becomes! I am sure that we have all witnessed such a phenomenon. Now we can understand the interpretation of the mishna in Yoma. Hashem can forgive someone if he sins directly against Him. However, when someone insults or wrongs one of His children, that is a personal assault, so to say, against Hashem Himself! How can Hashem possibly forgive that person until he asks forgiveness from His son!?! Perhaps the greatest nisayon that we face in our generation is sinas chinom. Yet ill-feeling between people, even friends, will prevent the Yom Kippur process from proceeding smoothly. Let us daven, with all of our hearts, that we are able to wipe away the sinas chinom we might harbor against others. Let us mend our ways and ask for forgiveness from each other. Let us grant forgiveness to all that have wronged us. With these great strides, Hashem will certainly reward us with a blessed year full of His brachos for good in both ruchnius and in gashmius; and the peace that this will usher in will certainly hasten the coming of Moshiach. Good Shabbos, a G?mar Chasima Tova, and a joyful Succos! Rabbi Yaakov Schwartz Menahel, Middle School Page 8 Talmudical Academy Of Baltimore

    Welcome back to a new year and a new beginning at Yeshivas Chofetz Chaim-Talmudical Academy. There is a palpable feeling of excitement permeating our Yeshiva. Everyone returned from their summer vacation refreshed, invigorated and looking forward to another fulfi lling year of growth in learning and middos. We have received much positive feedback from our parents about this year?s cheerful school opening. All the classes began enthusiastically, and the ruach in the yeshiva is very upbeat. We recognize that it is through the joint efforts of our faculty, administration and parent body that the confi dence in our yeshiva has been promulgated throughout our community, thus enabling us to achieve this upbeat attitude. In the many parent conferences, which we have had during the summer months, we have been able to reinforce our administration?s commitment to servicing the individual needs of each child. Once again we take this opportunity to invite all parents to visit the school and to discuss with us the educational needs of their children. We take this opportunity to welcome back our rebbeim and teachers for what we expect will be another very successful year.
