Portion ACHAREI mote - after the Passing

Portion ACHAREI mote - after the Passing
Passing? Like in
A game of political football?
This week's news is replete with
Anti Western Values , passing the buck,
And making evil demands.
Will Anti Semitism never end?
This week the Torah Portion is the SOURCE 
Of Yom Kippur readings - and
National and Family values
Sacrifices were offered foe penance
Of the Priesthood and the nation,  and rules are given for maintaining societal values.
And the spiritual side?
 Rabbi Carlebach explained some of the
Yom Kippur readings according to
Kabbalistic Values.
He taught:
“Everybody's gonna jump for joy”
Reb Shlomo Carlebach On Parshas Acharei Mos
The Right Draws Close 
Chazal say that on Yom Kippur, when the ... (lottery of the 'goat for G-d', ) came out in the  High Priest's right hand, this was a good sign. 
The heilige "High" Sochachover (Rebbe) says the Torah is teaching us here 
how to bring people closer to G-d, 
by (the saying in the Gemara) 
"The left hand 'pushes away' and (but) the right hand 'draws close."
 That's why the (positive lot) is in the right hand.
 the Shem MiShmuel, tells us the deepest depths of the right drawing someone close:
 When we show someone how good they can be, the bad automatically falls away...
(And) the Baal Shem Tov says, "Sur me'ra" ("Turn away from bad, and do good." Tehillim 34:15) means turn away from dealing every day with fighting the bad and just do good, with joy...
Joy is the greatest power to turn things to good!
Good Shabbos!"
I think
Sometimes even a cute picture creates joy.
I promised Leah this AM to take a picture for her
So see below the local wildlife walking around!
If only we could learn more from wildlife!
Shabbat Shalom
