A Tale of Three Shirts

Thursday, 16 September, 2010 - 12:00 pm

I'd like to share with you A Tale of Three Shirts. There were three shirts who were arguing with each other, each saying that it was the best of all of them.

One shirt was clean, brand new and untouched. It said, "I am the best because I have never been tainted".

The second shirt was a shirt that had just come out of the wash and it said, "I am better because even though I have been tainted yet I am still clean".

The third was a tie-dye shirt. It said, "I am better than both of you because even though I am clean, whether or not I "look clean," is not the basis for my specialness. My relationship with my owner is deeper than clean or dirty. It is that I am HIS shirt".
This Friday night and Shabbat are known as Yom Kippur. Yom Kippur is known as "the Day of Atonement." I'd like to share with you a truely deep meaning of Yom Kippur. On this day G-d says that His relationship with us is deeper than clean or dirty, than purity or the opposite. G-d is one with His people.

Let us remember this on Yom Kippur, on the Day of At-One-Ment.

May we all be sealed for a happy and healthy year.
Rabbi Schusterman
