Asking Forgiveness <- click here for orig. link!
On Yom Kippur, G‑d mercifully erases all the sins we have committed “before G‑d”—but not the sins we may have committed against our fellow man. If we really want to come out of this holy day completely clean, we need to first approach any individual whom we may have wronged and beg their forgiveness. This applies whether the offense was physical, emotional, or financial (in which case, seeking forgiveness is in addition to making appropriate monetary restitution).
Just as the offending individual is enjoined to sincerely seek forgiveness, so, too, the victim is expected to wholeheartedly forgive—provided he is assured that the plea for forgiveness is indeed sincere.
This is a great story how we suffered after yom tov, this plumber cleaned out 2 playmobile men from the toilet by filling our house with poo and still didn’t manage to clean the block, the worst plumber and he advertises as a playmobile man lol finally after some real cash paid came a real perosn and now we’re cleaned up spiritually and physically, thank you G-d !

Fiddler Raises the Roof
Daniel Ahaviel is one of the Jewish world’s top fiddlers; he’s also our dear friend and spiritual brother. He’s the one who plays the violin on our Judean Dream album. There’s no one who can fiddle and dance like he can. Daniel lives and breathes the joy of serving Hashem. Rebbe Nachman teaches that you can’t make teshuva if you’re not happy, so we need to put smiles on our face before Yom Kippur, and not be sullen like some folks think. And by the way, Yiddishkeit is cool…
When the prophet noticed the Children of Israel deviating too far from their roots, he urged us, “Return Israel to Hashem, your G-d… return to Hashem” . Why did the prophet see to repeat the fact that we must return to Hashem? In addition, why emphasise that it is Israel who must return: obviously if they are the ones who were sinning it is they that must repent?!
Furthermore, a significant part of the repentance prayers  seems to involve expressing that the complete repentance programme is too cumbersome! Are we trying to make things worse for ourselves?!
Amongst the many who were affected by the Tsumani disaster, was a South African Jewish family. The husband was out at sea at the time, whilst his wife, baby and maid were on the beach. The maid was the first to spot the gigantic Tsunami wave and unsuccessfully attempted to attract her employer’s attention. It was too late. He watched helplessly as his family was washed away, whilst he himself managed to grab onto a tree as he was washed ashore.
In the meantime his wife and maid were pressed up against the side of a tall building. They were up to their necks in water and the mother became frantic – she had lost hold of her baby!
In the meantime the maid felt something brush against her leg from the side. Instinctively she picked up this ‘thing’ – it was the baby!
G-d is our Heavenly parent. He wants us – his baby – to return to Him.
This is what the prophet is coming to emphasise:
It is not just about ‘returning to G-d’, but rather that we – the sons of Israel – the children of G-d, return to our Father in heaven.
We do not just simply return to G-d for our own benefit, but rather because just like a parent desires their child to ‘return’ to them, so too our Heavenly Father desires and helps us return to Him. The repentance programme of contemplation, removing oneself from sin, regret and acceptance to improve in the future might all seem daunting, or even ‘against all odds’. But so might reading, writing, walking for the first time or learning how to ride a bike. As long as our teachers want us to learn, then we can indeed succeed to great heights. And so we must remember that it is our Heavenly Father that we are talking about who wants us to return to Him! All we have to do is express our desire to return to Him, appreciate that we will need His help and take the first few steps to return to HimimHimH.
Have by father best Shabbos,
