Biblical Faith – with Sam Peak
Weekly series with new shows available every Tuesday.
The signifiance of Yom Kippur is that HaShem set aside one day for Israel, when repentance is readily accepted and their sins can easily be erased. This rectifies all spiritual damage caused by these sins, and removed the darkness that stengthened itself as a result of them.
It is important to realize that one of the major rectifications that the prophets selected for Israel was the concept of reading the Torah. This reading includes two basic concepts. The first is the annual Torah reading, where the entire Torah is read each year, following a constant cycle. The second consists of the special portions that are read at specific times (such as the various holy day reading.
On special certain days, it is also appropriate that special portions be read, relating to the concepts of those days. The illumination of those days is thus stengthened through the power of the Torah, which is the strongest power of mankind.
