The Day of Atonement, Yom Kip pur, the holiest day in the Jewish calendar falls this year on the 21st day of September. The Hebrew date is the 10th of Tishri. The festival is ordained in Leviticus XVI 29-34 and XXIII 26-82. In both passages it Is Styled "A Sabbath of Solemn Rest." The purpose Of the Day of Atone no nt is clearly indicated by its name. It is intended to complete and crown the work Of the penitential season, begun on the first of Tishri (New Year), by Anally reconciling the soul with the Almighty. Implicitly trusting in the Divine forgiveness, the Israel? ite believes that bis contrition, if it be really sincere, will atone for him. will make him "at one" once more with his Heavenly Father. The day, then, Is devoted to a supreme effort to penitence, to a mighty endeavor after communion with the Almighty. It is spent in prayer and meditation, it is kept, too, us a fast, in obedb n to the command given In ? ach of the two passages above cited where the expression "afflict his sou " must be understood, as it is throughout the* Bible, IIS synonymous with fasting. The chief, the real aln of the i?a> of Atonement is the reformed Iii?'. au the external elements of the day's observance?its worship and auster? ities?ars Intended to promote this hi preme purpose. They cannot do duty for it. The acl i f fasting is partly to serve ai a self-imposed chastisement, and partly it has q iv fh'x Influence. For hunger and weak? ness t?-li upon the conscience; they mortify pride, break down obstinacy, cast men down before God in humility and contrition, Bui fasting does even II oro than that. Taking the worship per away from such carnal ocupa Moni eating and drinking, it helps t?. ti\ his thoughts upon the needs of the soui. it makes th? d.ty one of physical abstinence and self denial, but also of correspondingly Increased spirituality.
