Positive Atonement
BY RABBI DAVID L. ZIELONKA
Congregation Schaarai Zedek, Tampa, Florida
In the liturgy for Yom Kippur there is found the following
thought-provoking paragraph:. .“This Day of Atonement is given to
L to reconcile us with God, to restore peace with our fellowmen and
L.jth ourselves, wherever discontent and selfishness have marred the
harmony of our lives.” This challenge to us and to all men demands
L os itive action if we are to achieve the aims and ideals of the Day
Ls Atonement. ——
I To become reconciled with God
■. e mUS t live and think in such a
tanner that we carry forward the
Bioble principles given to us
trough the centuries. It means
■that prayer and fasting are not
tough. It tells us that humbling
■ourselves in our Synagogues is in
sufficient. It lays stress on the
Seed for a positive self-searching
Shat will lead to precise actions
Sollowing the pattern of prophetic
Sxhortation; “It hath been told
Shee, O man, what is good and
Shat the Lord doth require of
Shee, only to do justly, to love
■mercy and to walk humbly with
Shy God.”
I To restore peace with our fel-
Howmen and ourselves is to further
■recognize how • wholly dependent
Se are upon each other, and how
■vital it is for each individual to
Hit properly into the picture of
■humanity. The year past has
■witnessed the frustration .of our
■dreams for peace. The months
Sow gone have witnessed the
■growth of discontent and selfish
■ness on an almost inconceivable

scale. To pray for peace is im
portant but to work and pray for
peace is tremendously more neces
sary. As Jews we have a special
duty in this respect. We pride
ourselves and boast to the world
that our faith and its teachers
have given to the world the tools
with which a world of harmony
can be built. We must, as Jews,
be expert in the use of these tools.
When we err we do so to the
shame of all of our people.
At this Yom Kippur time we
must, therefore, dedicate ourselves
anew to positive" action. Our world
is torn by strife and dissention.
The only real hope lies in com
plete reconciliation. May we be
blessed in our resolves. May we
be strengthened in our actions to
ward God, our fellowmen, and
ourselves.
